The effective communication in day to day scenario is to listen attentively. A good listening power goes a long way in improving the communication skills of an individual. Dont just speak, also listen. Try to grasp new words, correct pronunciations from your friends and other people. If you feel you are pronouncing a particular word in not the desired form, don’t hesitate or feel shy, instead, learn from others the correct way. Remember there is no limit and age to learn new things. One can do it almost everyday. Gone are the days when television was considered an idiot box. Who says one can’t gain anything while watching Television? While watching any talk show, or an interactive program on television, don’t simply stare at the pictures only, instead keep your ears and mind alert and try to follow the participant’s accent, selection of words, the flow of words and gain as much as you can. In any conversation, listen carefully what the other person is speaking and then only respond.
The ideal way to communicate in such a scenario is a text message as verbal communication would have been ineffective as Jackson would never be able to hear the message properly leading to wrong interpretations and misunderstandings. If the facility of text message is not available, it’s better to wait for the right time.
Speaking clearly and properly is the mantra to an effective communication. Never keep your thoughts within yourself, instead put your ideas in a sensible and meaningful content after carefully selecting the words. Remember selection of words is of utmost importance as any wrong word can distort the message and change the meaning of the sentence completely. Don’t keep half of your thoughts in mind, always speak clearly. If you want to order a Chicken Burger, please do specify your preference. If you don’t want to accompany your friends to a party, make them very clear. The pitch and tone of the communication must also be kept in mind for an effective communication. Never speak in between two individuals as it would always lead to confusions and misunderstandings and no one will be clear what the other person wants to convey.
Always try to understand the mood of the second party before communicating. If the other party is in a fowl mood, prefer to convey your message later. Don’t just immediately start with your message, instead first break the ice by some warm words, pleasant greetings and compliments. Make sure to make an eye contact with the other party for the desired effect.
