Communication begins with consciousness… With awareness of your surroundings. Think about this: Rather than attempting to communicate with someone, sell something, market something, criticize something, or have a discussion… Be aware of your surroundings and the situation you find yourself in.
You’re probably thinking, “what specifically should I be aware of?”
That’s a great question, keep reading.
When I developed the skill I’m about to share with you, the effectiveness of my communication went through the roof. Like any other skill in business and in life, I had to practice. It didn’t come easy in the beginning.
Communication Skill: Aim for awareness of little voices going on in the other person’s mind. Here’s some ideas…
- I’m afraid of losing my job.
- I am afraid about the future.
- My insecurities get the best of me.
- I don’t know if this is going to work.
Before I ask you what kind of leader you want to be, you need to know this… As a great communicator, you need to have a firm grasp on the fundamentals of what is going on in the mind of the people you’re communicating with. Once you have this awareness, your aim is to address them effectively in your language.
Recognize that people desire dignity and respect. As you know, sensitivity levels are high right now. Why are sensitivities are so high? Fear is at the center of it all. People do not think rationally until they overcome their fear. You may be the only one who can instill in them a sense of hope, dignity, and respect. They can then rise beyond the desperation of becoming bankrupt, hungry, starving, dying, or becoming ill.
