Communication Is Key!

Good communication goes a long way in life.


Effective communication facilitates trust and healthy relationships.



Here are six tips anyone can apply to become a better communicator at work and in life:


  • Give others your undivided attention. When participating in a conversation, eliminate any distractions (such as emails or phones) and focus on staying in the conversation instead of letting your mind wander.


  • Think ahead. Plan what you want to say and how you want to communicate it. This helps you be clear, concise and efficient.


  • Practice active listening. Listening is just as important for communication as talking is. Ensure you make eye contact, respond appropriately, and acknowledge your understanding of what the other is saying.


  • Be clear and concise. Avoid getting into long, drawn-out speeches or emails to get your point across - deliver it quickly and clearly to avoid any confusion or misunderstandings.


  • Develop your emotional intelligence. Also known as interpersonal skills, emotional intelligence is key for understanding and regulating our emotions and responding to others’ emotions appropriately.


  • Speak calmly and confidently. Take the time to articulate yourself how you intend to and pay attention to your body language when speaking – people who exude confidence attract more respect.
