Slide 5: 

Five Principles of Effective Communication Listen effectively. Respond appropriately. Read body language. Ask questions to clarify. Seek common ground.

Slide 6: 

1. Listen Effectively Focus on the speaker. Shut out internal/external noise. Listen without bias. Affirm and acknowledge statements. Don’t interrupt.

Slide 7: 

2. Respond Appropriately Ask open-ended questions. Repeat and reflect. Don’t judge. Be aware of your own biases. Be courteous.

Slide 8: 

3. Read Body Language Be aware of your own body language. Look for body language that conflicts with the verbal message. Respond to changes in body posture. Model positive body language.

Slide 9: 

Basics of Body Language Be present with your whole body Extend an open invitation to conversation. Acknowledge messages from others. Mirror; don’t mimic.

Slide 10: 

Basics of Body Language Tightly folded arms and crossed feet: Skeptical/defensive* Chin stroking: Making a decision Fist on cheek, index finger pointing upward: Listening with interest Hands clasped at chin, elbows on table: Defensive/evaluating Rubbing hands together: Excitement/optimism Hand over mouth: Skepticism, evaluation, or suppressing deceit Chewing tips of fingers: Anxiety * This language is also used when the person is feeling cold, so be cautious with your interpretation.

Slide 11: 

4. Ask Questions to Clarify Focus on the topic. Begin with “how” or “what.” Remember that “why” can cause defensiveness. Clarify the feeling behind the words. Use the speaker’s words.

Slide 12: 

5. Seek Common Ground Use similar verbal and body language. Respect and reflect. Seek a win–win solution. Check that all parties understand. Compromise is better than conflict.

Slide 13: 

Recognize that listening is not simply waiting for your turn to talk. Listening Is a Choice Decide that you want to listen. Listen with a clean slate. Clean your filter regularly.

Slide 14: 

Basics of Listening Five Levels Ignoring Pretending Selective Attentive Empathic/Active Seek to Understand Listen to understand Clarify the message Be understood Be open to other points of view Know your agenda

Slide 15: 

Principles of Active/Empathic Listening Repeat. This shows you are paying attention. Rephrase. Think about the other person’s agenda. Reflect. Respond to both message and feelings. Rephrase and reflect. Build trust.

Slide 16: 

To clarify understanding To gain more information To move toward the answer/action/solution Why Rephrase?

Slide 17: 

Your Voice Reflects Your Listening Listen to what is and is not said. Respond first to the feeling, then to the content. Be aware of your emotional involvement. Remember that the same statement can have several interpretations. Your attitude comes across. Be mindful in your word choice and emphasis. Avoid sexist, racist, and other inappropriate words. Treat others with dignity and respect.

Slide 18: 

Vocal Emphasis “ I didn’t steal your cow yesterday"

Slide 19: 

Consider this: It’s not what you say ; it’s how you say it. Use simple language. Watch your grammar. Avoid jargon, slang, and acronyms. Remember that 40 percent of the success of communication is in the oral delivery.

Slide 20: 

Use of Voice and Language “Speech is the mirror of the soul” (Socrates). Vocal energy is vital for engaging an audience. Audiences absorb a message 10 – 15 words behind the speaker’s delivery.

Slide 21: 

Exercises for Excellence Strengthen your voice. Exercise your vocal cords. Learn to breathe. Relax your body.

Slide 22: 

Billy Button bought a buttered biscuit The painted pomp of pleasure's proud parade Like clocks, like locks Drowsy tinklings lull the distant folds Red leather, yellow leather A library literally littered with contemporary literature Katy caught a naughty kitten Helen heard the horses' hooves from her home on the hill Last night the cows prowled around the yard Dance past the last barn Park your car in Harvard yard Tongue Twisters

Slide 23: 

YOU Messages and I Messages “You” Message You really wrecked the project when you took over. I can’t believe you did that. You don’t even care about the success of this project. “I” Message I feel very upset about the direction the project has taken since you took over. I am really upset about the decision you made. I feel disappointed because it seems you’re not concerned about the success of the project.
