8 Quick Improvements To Your Communication Skills!
Your communication skills can be the difference between getting the job you want or not. There’s 8 key features when it comes to being able to communicate well, they’re:
- Verbal Communication.
- Non-Verbal Communication.
- Body Language.
- Non-Verbal Communication: Face and Voice.
- Effective Speaking.
- Listening Skills.
- Writing Skills.
- Presentation Skills.
Here are some quick tips to improve all of these skills:
Verbal Communication – This is one of the more important communication skill, always think before you speak because who knows what you can end up coming out with.
Non-verbal Communication – Make sure you look interested what the other person is saying if not this can end up creating bad relationships between work colleagues.
Body Language – Having a bad body posture creates a bad working image for your boss and other working colleagues.
Non-Verbal Communication – Facial expressions, having the same facial expression all the time whilst listening can be kinda creepy. If you use facial expressions or hand gestures then it means you’re more interested in what the other person is saying.
Effective Speaking – Make sure you speak clearly and fluently, if you start stuttering or mumbling words then it’s harder for people to understand and it shows your not confident in yourself.
Listening Skills – Always focus on what the other person is saying, if you miss out on any information and they question you on it then you can look like a bit of an idiot! So don’t do that.
Writing Skills – The best bit of advice I can give you in this is DOUBLE CHECK your work! Always.
Presentation Skills – There’s 2 bits of advice that I can give you with this, that’s confidence and professionalism. If you’re not confident then even if you have the best presentation in the world it won’t look as good. The second bit of advice is making sure your presentation looks professional! No spelling mistakes, grammar all in check and always have a run through of your presentation before hand.
