10 Powerful Communication Improvement Tips
“Communication and communication strategy is not just part of the game, it is the game.” Oscar Munoz
1. What You Know
Education is all about learning the basics, but to be an effective speaker is to practice what you’ve learned, and share what you know.
It’s just as important as asking questions. Sometimes listening to the sound of our own voice can teach us to be a little bit confident with ourselves and to say the things we believe in with conviction.
We all make mistakes, and sometimes we tend to slur our words, stutter, and probably mispronounce certain words even though we know what it means, but rarely use it only to impress listeners. So, in a group, don’t be afraid to ask if you’re saying the right word properly and if they’re unsure about it then make a joke out of it.
4. Eye Contact
There’s a lot to say when it comes to directing your attention to your audience with an eye-catching gaze. It’s important that you keep your focus when talking to a large group in a meeting or a gathering, even though he or she may be handsome/gorgeous.
5. Kidding Around
A little bit of humor can do wonders to lift the tension, or worse boredom when making your speech. That way, you’ll get the attention of the majority of the crowd and they’ll feel that you’re just as approachable, and as human to those who are listening.
6. Be Like Them
Interaction is all about mingling with other people. You’ll get a lot of ideas, as well as knowing what people make them as they are.
7. Me, Myself, & I
Admit it, there are times you sing to yourself in the shower. Listening to the sound of your own voice while you practice your speech in front of a mirror can help correct the stress areas of your pitch. And while you’re at it, you can spruce it up as well.
A smile says it all much like eye contact. There’s no point on grimacing or frowning in a meeting or a gathering, unless it’s at a funeral. You can better express what you’re saying when you smile.
9. A Role Model
There must be at least one or two people in your life you have listened to when they’re at a public gathering or maybe at church. Sure, they read their lines, but taking a mental note of how they emphasize what they say can help you once you take center stage.
Make the best out of preparation rather than just scribbling notes down, and often in a hurried panic. Some people like to write things down on index cards, while others resort to looking at their notes that are written on the palms of their hands.
“Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair. Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble.” Yehuda Berg
