Successful You—How to be a better communicator
Most people like to speak more than to listen but listening carefully to what other says lets you connect with them. Active listening entails focusing on the conversation and the situation, not being distracted from anything happening around you.
Here are strategies to be a better communicator.
First, as a learner, join the conversation with an open mind.
Second, your idea should be consistent and not too repeated with paraphrasing.
Third, speak with intonation, rhythm, and a low and smooth tone, sometimes speaking quickly and loudly with stress.
Fourth, don’t be too specific; it makes others feel bored. Instead, go with the flow, not stick with a single topic.
Lastly, be honest and use clear, simple words so that others understand your point.
