One of the biggest challenges in the workplace and at home is the lack of clear communications. How many times have words been misinterpreted, misunderstood miscommunicated? Lack of communication has caused wars, lost sales and destroyed marriages.
‘Communications is to the relationship as blood is to the body, without either there is no life’.
Take time to plan, think and gather your thoughts before engaging your mouth (or computer for the written word). Make time in all your critical relationships to converse, understand and build the relationships where you understand what is not being said (body language) as well as what is being said especially regarding the spoken word.
Make a decision to become a communications expert by giving your key relationships the time necessary to keep the lines of communications open and preventing any misunderstandings along the journey of life. Just paying attention and listening can transform a relationship. Sort out any communications issues by addressing the specific issue with the person.
