11 Tips To Become an Effective Communicator

1. Listen Listen Listen

Listening is the most important part in communication. Often times we are so preoccupied with daily thoughts, stressors, and tasks that we forget to slow down and listen to what is being told to us. If you want to become an effective communicator, it is very important that you are able to listen and properly intake the information you are being told. This helps create healthy communication.

2. Find Compassion and Neutrality

Sometimes inherit biases and perspectives can cloud our vision. Whenever people speak to us, it is best to enter the conversation from a neutral perspective and really take the time to see what the other person is saying. When working on your communication, it is important to try and stay neutral when combative or contrary opinions are stated.

3. Search Deep and Find What You Want

Sometimes it is hard for us to communicate because we have internal conflicts that we are dealing with. If we have something that has been bothering us in the back of our mind, we may end up projecting that onto someone else by irrationally targeting them.

4. Be Specific About What You Want

If you have someone in your life that you expect more out of, do your best to communicate that in a courteous and kind manner. Sometimes people are willing to do and give you what you need, but have no idea that that is what you are seeking. Be open with those around you, including your partner, so that they can have a better understanding of your relationship and how to help it prosper.

5. Be Mindful of Your Audience

When we speak to others, or others speak to us, it is important to be mindful of the audience. The person we are speaking to may have their own perspective, intention, or personal matter that they are carrying with them to the conversation, and it is important to be mindful of that. Try to not bring up topics that will trigger or make the other person feel uncomfortable.

6. Stay Positive and Optimistic

Everyone loves sharing and having a heart to heart with an optimistic person. Not only does it lighten up the mood and keep things open, it helps your attitude as well. When you take the time to manifest positive thoughts and words, it helps your perspective in life as well.

7. Think Before You Speak

Even if you have good intentions with a topic you bring up, it is always best to take some time to process what you want to say and how you want to say it, so that the words do not get lost in translation. Sometimes with our words it is hard for us to say how we feel, so make sure you really think about what you want to say before saying it.

8. Show Empathy

Often times when people tell us what they are going through, it can be a force of habit to end up giving advice or suggestion. But in reality, sometimes the best thing to do is show that you care and are empathetic to the other person’s situation. Phrases like “I am sorry that you had to go through that”, or “Wow that must have been hard for you” go a long way when it comes to communication.

9. Make Observations

In addition to having a shoulder to cry on, giving your input on topics you discuss with those around you helps to make sure that you two are on the same page. When people speak to you about something especially sensitive, show that you are trying to understand what they are going through, and give positive and reassuring observations when you can.

10. Remember and Show That You Remember

When you take the time to remember and be mindful of what those around you are going through, they will be able to notice the difference. In addition to listening and remembering what those around you tell you, it is important to show that you remember as well. When you reconnect with others, ask about their loved ones, career status, or any other small detail that you can remember them telling you. This goes a long way in showing that you care.

11. Write Down Your Thoughts

If you have something that has been sitting on your mind for a while but not sure who to tell about it, sometimes the best thing to do is write your thoughts and feelings down. Often, we just need to feel like we expressed ourselves, and writing down your thoughts regularly will help you feel like you get the release that you need. This way, you are at peace and thinking logically when you speak to others, without emotions clouding your perspective.

Therapeutic Communication

Therapeutic communication is a collection of techniques that prioritize the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of patients . Nurses provide patients with support and information while maintaining a level of professional distance and objectivity. With therapeutic communication, nurses often use open-ended statements and questions, repeat information, or use silence to prompt patients to work through problems on their own.

Healthy Communication in Relationships

Good communication is an important part of all relationships and is an essential part of any healthy partnership. All relationships have ups and downs, but a healthy communication style can make it easier to deal with conflict and build a stronger and healthier partnership.

We often hear how important communication is, but not what it is and how we can use good communication in our relationships

Healthy Communication Conclusion

Just like any skill, excellent communication takes practice, and there is room to be awkward and mess up. Notice what part throws you off, and then recalibrate. Do what works best for you and those around you.

Practice communicating with the people around you, and you will notice your life change for the better. Thank you for reading and good luck!
