Our previous two blog posts dealt with the introduction and importance of communication skills.
In today’s post, we’d talk about the five important aspects of communication skills. Mastering these aspects would exemplify your communication ability and avoid misunderstanding and misinterpretation.
Clarity: Effective communication begins with clarity of thought. Before we communicate, it is imperative that we have clarity in our mind about the message that we want to deliver. To keep communication efficient, we need to keep it free of unnecessary words. Keep the message short and to the point.
Voice: One of the most important aspects of communication is confidence. And nothing delivers it better than your voice. The tone of your voice usually sets the mood of the conversation. Hence, voice modulation forms an important pillar of effective communication. Voice Modulation is the change in pace, pitch, stress, volume and the tone of voice. It not only reflects confidence but also helps in convincing your audience about your beliefs and ideas.
Listening: Listening is the key to effective communication. To listen is to accurately interpret messages in a communication process. Patient listening forms the core of every communication process. However, the effective listening process goes merely beyond offering an ear. It involves observing the speaker’s body language, gestures, facial expression and eye contact. Listening is therefore not just a matter of using your ears, but also your eyes.
Open-Mindedness: An open mind is a hallmark of strong communication. Open-Mindedness considers the merit in what other people say without being biased or judgmental. This receptivity to varied perspectives not only enhances your communication ability but also builds wisdom. Open-Mindedness gives birth to a meaningful dialogue and usually takes a thread of communication to its logical end.
Asking Questions: Questioning is the art of acquiring information. Good questions help conversations to flow and improve their outcomes. To ask good questions, one must ask them in a sequence, should know when to keep them open-ended and use neutral words. Hence, asking the right question at the right time to the right person holds the key to great communication.
Possessing effective communication skills is a powerful tool to have. However, it requires constant awareness, intentional effort and a desire to improve. In the long run, effective communication skills improve your relationships, increase your market value and build your self-esteem.
