  • You are your Thoughts … Choices … Decisions …
  • W. A. T. C. H.W = WORDSA = ACTIONST = THOUGHTSC = CHARACTERH = HEAD & HEARTSeptember 7, 2012 67
  • Move out of the COMFORT ZONE
  • Break theBoundaries… Leave your comfort zone …. Enter the Challenge Zone
  • 1. Make sure that body language, your words & tonality are congruent – [ aligned and sending the same message ]
  • 2. Maintaining eye contact – [ expression of your interest ]
  • 3. Improve your voice culture – [ make it interesting ]
  • 4. Be positive, precise and clear – [ ~ “don’t forget to complete the work by tomorrow.” ] [ ~ “please remember to complete the work by tomorrow.” ]
  • 5. Good listening supplies the building blocks of good understanding and good communication skills ~ listening is an active process involving : ears – for verbal communication eyes – for non-verbal communication body – for gestures
  • 6. Well-timed pauses give time for explanation, evaluation & development of thought ~ facial expressions reveal the difference between a pregnant pause and an embarrassed silence
  • 7. Summarising is an essential skill which takes stock of the main points covered
  • 8. Empathize with the receiver of the message ~ put yourself in the other person’s position, understand the other person’s perspective and then proceed to interact
  • 9. Communication must appeal to both mind and heart ~ appealing to mind requires facts, evidence and logic ~ appealing to the heart, more difficult, requires ‘touching the soul’ - based on mutually respected values
  • 10. Keep the communication simple ~ say it in simple sentences, with no twists and turns ‘communicate to express but not to impress’
  • 11. Tell it and tell it again, if necessary ~ tell the point once – then come back and hit it again, and again.
  • 12. Communicate with confidence ~ communication exposes your inner thoughts, feelings and sentiments. your confidence, or the lack of it, is getting transparently revealed.
  • 13. Practice the art of communicating on paper ~ thinking on paper & saying on paper
  • 14. Communication is irreversible ~ communication cannot be reversed [ reversible processes – water and ice irreversible processes – milk and coffee ] Only minimizing the hurt feelings is possible, but the damage has already been done. [ ~ forgive but not forget ] Be highly careful, thoughtful and purposeful
  • 15. Communication is more a people process than a language process ~ communication is a series of actions and reactions communication influences our own and that of others’ behaviour communication reflects the true personality of an individual
  • 16. Communication can always be improved ~ practice, more practice and much more practice
  • 17. Communication and feedback ~ feedback ensures that message has been received in the manner, that was originally intended
  • 18. Receiving feedback about Communication Asking others for honest feedback about the way you communicate – both positive and negative aspects - can be very helpful.
  • 19. Communication and clarity
  • 20. Communication and commitment
  • 21. Communication and character
  • 22. Communication and Continuous improvementImproving your communication skills is a process and cannot be accomplished overnight.Identify and then choose one or two traits – at a time – and now work on those over a period of time.
  • 23. Communication and Facial expressions Facial expressions communicate the intentions more effectively – note that there are 80 muscles in the face, capable of more than 7,000 expressions.
  • Be Determined to improve your communication skills. Become aware of your own styles, observe others carefully, and launch a committed programme to im pro ve Your communication skills.94 September 7, 2012 94 Kerala
