In any language, there are three extremely important points to remember when you’re communicating with someone.
1. Say what you mean. It can be difficult to express (say) some ideas clearly, but if you’re trying to prevent miscommunication, it’s important to say exactly what you mean. Be clear and to the point.
2. Ask questions. Communication is two-way, which means you can’t be the one doing all the talking. To make sure your listener is engaged (interested in what you have to say) and understanding you, ask questions. See #5 below for good types of questions to ask.
3. Listen. We mean really listen. Hear what your speaking partner has to say, and try to understand what they mean.
You can do the following to improve your skills-
Get your point acros:
When we're trying to get a point across to someone else we often think long and hard about what we want to say. That is the wrong way to go about it. Instead of focusing on what you want to say to get your point across, you should focus on what you want the other person to hear.
learn to speak in public:
Some people are reluctant to speak in public or before a group. Managers can't be. You will hinder your career if you are unable to speak confidently in front of a group. Like so many other things, public speaking gets easier with practice. You just go out and do it and each time it gets easier.
Give Positive Feedback:
Don't ever underestimate the power of positive feedback. We are quick to point out to someone when they make a mistake. Sometimes we forget to acknowledge them when they do something right. Giving positive feedback can be a powerful tool for employee motivation.
Give Negative Feedback Properly
You always want to try positive feedback first, but there are times that isn't appropriate or effective. When you do need to give negative feedback10, there are ways to do it that produce the desired results without creating barriers.
