Best Practices for Effective Communication
What are the best practices for effective communication? Don’t assume anything, be open to a conversation and don’t hold anything back. These are just a few TIPS from today’s episode with Sophie den Hartog of Fresh Habits.
Communication is one of the most fundamental necessities of being human. However, conversations go wrong so often. The first practice for effective communication is don’t assume anything. Always ask questions about things you don’t understand. This is especially important for immigrants in Australia. It is totally normal to adjust to the accent and the jargon. In general, practice the art of listening as well.
That being said, be open to a conversation. Communication involves a speaker and a listener. So, when it’s your turn to listen, do not interrupt. Have an open mind and consider the other’s perspective. Withhold judgements and always check if you truly understand what the other person is saying.
Finally, one of the best practices for effective communication is not holding anything back. If you are the one talking, be clear and precise in what you want to say. Be generous with the details. Watch out for clues on whether the listener understands you or not.
These are just a few of the best practices for effective communication. Practice those skills and be a good conversationalist. Don’t forget to have fun!
