Communication Management Skills:
A few tricks to improving your communication skills are:
- Practice active listening. Try to look the person speaking in the eyes and think only about the words that they are speaking.
- Speak slowly and ask questions to test whether the listening party understands what is being communicated.
- When writing, always write a first draft and edit the draft into a final copy after asking whether the purpose of your communication is clear and understandable.
- When you find yourself caught up in your own thoughts, try to relax and “Watch” the thinker thinking those thoughts. You are not your thoughts. You are greater than your thinking.
