Introduction Regardless of what you do for a living, your ability to communicate effectively is crucial to your personal and professional success. While entire books could be dedicated to this art, I am confident that these few insights will assist you at becoming the master communicator you wish to be.

Use Different Methods To Communicate:

Use Different Methods To Communicate There are two parts to communication: What you say (the message) How you say it (the presentation) The presentation you use to get your message across does not have to be verbal; in fact, using only verbal communication is, in my opinion, the most common mistake made when trying to present information . Your message can be packaged in anything from a video or drama, to a picture or graph. Choosing which method you will use will take careful thought and planning .

It’s In The Presentation Details:

It’s In The Presentation Details My favourite form of communication is design; it really is true that a picture is worth a thousand words. Imagine a poorly designed business website which is unorganized, cluttered, and clearly hasn’t been updated in close to a decade.

Full-Form Delivery:

Full-Form Delivery Give It To Them Straight The same thing applies to TV commercials, listeners at a conference or meeting, and people looking at advertisements. You have a very short time to communicate your points; so don’t bury your message too deep . The first thing someone hears or sees should clearly present your message to your audience just as much as your closing statement.

Preparation Time Is Never Wasted Time:

Preparation Time Is Never Wasted Time Some people like stories and details ; others just want the highlights and headlines . Some people prefer just listening ; others need something to help them visualize . Regardless, you should be prepared to present your message effectively whether you have 5 minutes or 50.

It’s All About Them:

It’s All About Them Your audience wants you to succeed . No one wants to listen to a nervous speaker; it’s awkward for everyone . People want to learn, they want the information you have, and they want you to ‘wow’ them with a great presentation – so give them exactly what they want.

Allow Questions:

Allow Questions It’s About Them When it comes to general conversation, everyone’s favorite subject is themselves. Asking people questions about themselves is incredibly useful for several reasons. They don’t need to think very much when talking about themselves. This takes away that tension in the room, creating a more friendly atmosphere . They feel you are genuinely interested. Nothing makes someone feel more valued than when you sincerely want to know about him or her. This takes the pressure off of you. Just keep asking the listener questions until you have something of real substance to contribute. This gives you a persona of intelligence. Ultimately, your message and presentation revolves around your audience, not you. You should always think from their perspective , concentrating all your efforts in packaging your message to tailor-fit your audience.

Be The Expert In The Room:

Be The Expert In The Room Whatever you say, say it confidently If you want the listener to take you seriously, you need to take yourself seriously. Eliminate Bad Habits Don’t Lie To Your Audience

Get To The Point:

Get To The Point There is a saying that goes along with public speaking: "tell them what you’re going to tell them, tell them , then tell them what you told them ". This saying goes straight to the heart of any good presentation: get to the point and repeat your point .

Planning To Communicate:

Planning To Communicate The first thing you should do when planning any communication is to write out in as few words as possible, what you want to say. A great question to ask is "if my audience only remembers three things from my presentation, what should they be?" When you know your key points, you can strategically plan your presentation to highlight those points. Using repetition and emphasis is the best way to ensure a message sticks. Finally, and most importantly: find your voice. Your ‘voice’ is a term used to describe your unique and authentic perspective , which you should nurture and cherish. Apply the principles mentioned in this article along with your unique voice, and you will become a great communicator.
