Be A Better Communicator
Communication is not as hard as we believe it to be. My clients tell me they are afraid to speak up or be straight forward because it won’t end well. True communication is individuals listening to one another and exchanging ideas. Mix in acceptance and patience, and you have the recipe for a great conversation.
The Weekly Action Challenge
Your challenge this week is to be a better communicator. Make a list of people you have trouble communicating with. Next to their name, write down what the problem is. Ask yourself how you contribute to the difficulty. Next, write down what you will do differently going forward. For example, next to John’s name, you could say, "I will listen to him more." Or, "I won’t interrupt him when he speaks." Usually when something is not working, we look outward. “What is someone doing to me, and why won’t they change their behavior? “ That’s not how it works. Want to change the people around you? Change yourself first.
So what do you say, you only have one life to live so it might as well be a life you love!
