Here are the 9 Tips for Improving Your Communication Skills:

  • Make communication a priority.

Take classes, read books, magazine articles or learn from successful communicators around you. Seek a mentor or coach.

  • Simplify and stay on message.

Use simple, straightforward language. Remember that Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address was 286 words, about two minutes long.

  • Engage your listeners or readers.

Draw your listeners and readers into the conversation. Ask questions and invite opinions. Solicit their feedback.

  • Take time to respond.

After you’ve listened (and understood) take time to “draft” in your head what you want to say.

  • Make sure you are understood.

Don’t blame the other person for not understanding. Instead, look for ways to clarify or rephrase what you are trying to say so it can be understood.

  • Develop your listening skills, too.

The best communicators are almost always the best listeners. Listen without judgment and don’t be distracted by thinking about what you want to say next. Then, respond, not react.

  • Body language is important.

Studies show that 65% of all communication is non-verbal. Watch for visual signs that your listener understands, agrees or disagrees with your message. And be aware that your body is sending signals, too.

  • Maintain eye contact.

Whether speaking to a crowd or one-on-one, maintaining eye contact builds credibility and demonstrates you care about your listeners.

  • Respect your audience.

Recognize your message is not just about you or what you want. You should sincerely care about the needs and the unique perspectives of those to whom you are communicating. One of the best ways to show your respect is simply by paying attention to what they say.

With strong communication skills, you’ll master the art of having difficult conversations, make your ideas heard, negotiate a salary increase or promotion skillfully, and make a strong impression on everyone you meet.

Executive coaching can help you take your career to the next level. Contact Shine Education and Training Institute for personalized support along your journey.

Why We Learn More And More

Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source.

Sed ut perspiciatis unde omnis iste natus error sit voluptatem accusantium doloremque laudantium, totam rem aperiam, eaque ipsa quae ab illo inventore veritatis et quasi architecto beatae vitae dicta sunt explicabo. Nemo enim ipsam voluptatem quia voluptas sit aspernatur aut odit aut fugit, sed quia consequuntur magni dolores eos qui ratione voluptatem sequi nesciunt. Neque porro quisquam est, qui dolorem ipsum quia dolor sit amet, consectetur, adipisci velit, sed quia non numquam eius modi tempora incidunt.

10 Simple Habits That Will Noticeably Improve Your Social Skills

Here are some ideas for social skills in general, and these should help with sales, too:

  • Listen to people. Most of the people are not listening, but rather trying to be the loudest person in the room. If you ask questions and listen, you are extremely likely to stand out from the crowd.
  • Be interested in people’s stories. We are all a bit egocentric and we tend to LOVE people who are interested in our stories. Interested people are interesting. Ask people questions. Try to learn something you did not know before from your interlocutor.
  • Do you function better in 1-on-1 conversations or in a large crowd? This is an important distinction and knowing how you function best will help you create the best environment for your social skills to shine. I love connecting with people 1 on 1, and that’s how I always have deeper conversations and make a better impression. Hint: go with your gut feeling. Which types of interactions feel better? How did you make more friends? Which conversations do you remember as more pleasant?
  • Don’t be too negative or ironic and don’t complain all the time. All of these behaviors are people repellent. We are consistently bombarded with fear, negativity, and generally the worst of humanity (just turn on the news). That’s why we gravitate towards people who are kind, loving, cheerful, and funny, rather than to those who bitch all the time. Giving negativity to people is like selling the ice to Eskimos. No one wants to buy it.
  • Remember people’s names. I hear people claiming that they have short memories and cannot possibly remember people’s names all the time. Jim Kwik came up with a terrific hack to prove these folks wrong. He asks: “If I tell you: ‘You will get one thousand dollars for remembering this guy’s name,’ would you remember it?” Sure as hell you would! So it’s not about your brainpower, it’s about motivation. If you want to remember, you can remember. Ask people to repeat their names. If it’s hard, ask them to spell it for you. Repeat after them. If you forget, ask someone else from the group, “Hey, what was the name of the guy in the red shirt? I forgot.” Do whatever you have to do to remember. And then call people by their names. People love that.
  • Remember people’s stories. The whole point of listening is to remember what people tell you. And it can be a great foundation to follow up (see idea #8), spark new conversations, or start/strengthen the casual friendship. Remember names of people’s family members, pets, hobbies, details about the job, a side gig, what are they obsessed with, remember as much as you can. People are absolutely psyched when they realize that you actually listened to them and remembered their story. This is a surefire way to stand out because the majority of people only wait for their own turn to speak. Which reminds me…
  • Don’t fill every gap with talking. Conversations are two-way streets. However, sometimes it’s perfectly fine to say, “Wow, that’s really cool.” You don’t always need to have a follow-up story, or the answer or an opinion. Ask your interlocutor another question. Nod your head. Be silent. (And you can also move to idea #9.) When I am in the company of people who cannot stop talking, I feel drained and I need to spend time alone to recharge.
  • Follow up. Regarding networking, most people think that a high-powered approach is to be courageous, approach others first, and start the conversation. Wrong. That is the initiation of networking. The truest power of networking lies in following up. That is how relationships are built. It’s a marathon, not a sprint. Remember what the person you met likes (idea #6) and send him or her a useful link to an article, webinar, workshop, or podcast. Even better, try to come up with the recommendation during the conversation and then promise to follow up with the link/recipe/code/useful person’s contact, etc. And do it! Seriously. This will show that you are caring, diligent, consistent, and reliable. How many times did someone promise to send you something and never did? A gazillion. People who actually follow through are therefore rare and precious.
  • Know when to leave. Don’t get me wrong, but nobody wants to chat only with you for hours. Have a nice conversation and move on.
  • It’s all about love. Last but not least, love is the key ingredient. It’s kind of funny how we all want social hacks and tricks. The biggest trick of them all is love. That is the ultimate social skill. Love people, respect people, admire people, be interested in what people are going through, compliment people, see the best in people, forgive people, don’t judge people, help people, shower people with your love. And then all of these other ideas will be fine adjustments.
