How to Improve Communication Skill in 1 Day...

“The art of communication is the language of leadership..”
      Ø Be a Good Listener  That’s right most people have no idea that listening is a necessary part of the communication process, but the reality is that  listening is an essential part of communication: not only does it help you to build rapport with other people, it ‘s also a way of demonstrating respect for others. 

Ø You can enhance effective communication by using open body language arms uncrossed, standing with an open stance or sitting on the edge of your seat, and maintaining eye contact with the person you’re talking to.

Ø You can also use body language to emphasize or enhance your verbal message patting a friend on the back while complimenting him on his success, for example, or pounding your fists to underline your message.

Ø Focus fully on the speaker, his or her body language, and other nonverbal cues. If you’re daydreaming, checking text messages, or doodling, you’re almost certain to miss nonverbal cues in the conversation. If you find it hard to concentrate on some speakers, try repeating their words over in your head it’ll reinforce their message and help you stay focused. 

Ø  Don’t finish other people’s sentences we used to do this a lot thinking we were helpfully finishing people’s sentences for them. Wrong. Research proving that you’re interested in what they’re saying. This also keeps you focused and less distracted.

Ø Be willing to compromise Sometimes, if you can both bend a little, you’ll be able to find a happy middle ground that reduces the stress levels for everyone concerned. If you realize that the other person cares much more about something than you do, compromise may be easier for you and a good investment in the future of the relationship.
Ø  Agree to disagree, if necessary, and take time away from the situation so everyone can calm down. Take a quick break and move away from the situation. Go for a stroll outside if possible, or spend a few minutes meditating. Physical movement or finding a quiet place to regain your balance can quickly reduce stress.
