7 Tips to Extraordinary Communication

30 Seconds or Bust! The Key To Good Communication

Today, we will touch briefly on communication and some tips that will help you get the results you need.

Extraordinary Communication

Rock Star Performers with extraordinary communication are hard to find. Those that have it can nail it every time. Bill Clinton, Ronald Reagan (in his prime) and Barak Obama are great examples of people who have mastered communication and how they deliver messages.

Bill Clinton Rock Star Performer

It has been said that Bill Clinton can enter a room and the entire room can sense his presence.

I have experienced this myself a number of times with people who have high levels of confidence in themselves.

People are drawn to you almost trance like. That is amazing Rock Star Performer quality

Waffle Leads to “A-Ha”, “Oh”, “Mmmm” Moments

Regardless of whether you are promoting or selling something or about to share an experience, please get the point quickly and go into more detail once the receiver is engaged. There is nothing worse than a whole story being told before the communicator has got to their point and you have drifted off so much that you the only way you can respond is with a “A-ha, oh, mmmm” because you have no clue what they said, due to having gone through that evening’s shopping list or visualizing how good a cold beer would be right now.

Make Someone Feel Like They Are Important

When you engage with someone, there is so much power in being present with them. Really look at them. It will make them feel like the only person in the room and that they are important. Rock Star Performers do this all the time.

Be A Better Communicator – 7 Tips To Successful Communication

  1. Studied and watch some of speeches of Clinton, Obama, people you admire and see if you can gain some insight that can improve how you engage people
  2. Great communicators love meeting and being with people. Learn to overcome shyness.
  3. Do exercises to increase your confidence and self esteem
  4. Focus on the person you are with and not the person who just walk by or caught your eye
  5. The dress the way you want to be perceived
  6. Learn to get your point across in 30 seconds
  7. Ask friends for feedback / video yourself giving a presentation or speech

One last point for today – Good communication is also about knowing when not to talk. We will go into more detail on that next time when look at Listening.

Valentines Day (Dread or Love?)

Valentines Day (Dread or Love?)

For some of us out there we are coming to that dreaded time of year: Valentines Day or Sad-Times Day as I like to call. In honour of the occasion, I’ve decided to step into my desired writer persona, Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw for the rest of this article.

Sad-Times’s Day can bring trauma to many out there (women in particular). Why? Because they  think that there’s a stigma to being single. This isn’t help by some of those around. Noted stigma name callers include Aunties, work colleagues, all your married / partner friends, parents in denial for those you out there who are gay.

To make matters worse, Valentines Day falls on a Sunday this year so you can’t even fake a romance by sending yourself flowers or chocolates to the office so the aforementioned work colleagues think you are have a secret you are holding back from them!

So What To Do?

Bringing it back to basics, Valentines can be seen as one big money making scheme with the love long gone. It gives retailers, hoteliers and restaurateurs a perfect excuse to mark up products and services by 25%-50%.

Being single actually means you are financially better off! Rejoice in your S!

No arguments over where to eat, dead flowers, liquor chocolates and best of all, you can actually get away with forgetting that it is Valentines Day. What more could you want in this GFC crisis we read about all the time?

Expressing Love

If expressing love is the true intent of Valentines, then may be we should live each and every day with love in your heart – for you, your loved ones and mankind. Don’t wait for 1 day a year to make someone feel special…

“Being single used to mean that nobody wanted you. Now it means you’re pretty sexy and you’re taking your time deciding how you want your life to be and who you want to spend it with.” – Carrie Bradshaw…
