Confusion With Conversations
Be mindful of who you're speaking with and make them feel valued
Have you ever said something and later realized you made some wrong assumptions?
I certainly have!
When I'm speaking and someone's nodding their head, I assume this person is agreeing with me.
Perhaps they're only acknowledging what I'm saying.
Whenever we focus on ourselves in communication, there's a strong possibility we'll encounter trouble.
Just because I say something, it doesn't mean...
They heard what I said...
Believe what I declared...
Or will do what I suggest.
To be a great communicator, you must be very mindful of who you're talking to.
Ask yourself these questions...
What do I want this person to know?
How can I make them feel valued?
Will my conversation inspire or discourage someone?
We think about ourselves 95% of the time.
So relating to people constructively requires an approach...
That conveys an outlook from their perspective.
And this takes boundless skill and awareness.
In order to improve the connection in your conversations,
Say to yourself...
This isn't about me.
And magically, they will hear, feel, and believe you.
Because your voice is authentic and compassionate.
