Week 40 - Be a Great Communicator

Good communication is highly underrated. When we have it, relating to others seems easy and effortless, and when we don't, it feels frustrating and arduous. It's easy to take good communication for granted; yet taking the time to communicate effectively can prove to be highly beneficial on many levels.

The change

Practice effective communication in your daily interactions

Ok, I wasn't sure what this meant but it suggests

1. Actively listen
2. Repeat back what you've heard
3. Keep attitudes in check i.e., respect the other person's opinions etc.
4. Use body language
5. Be clear and brief
6. Take responsibility i.e., accept of you miscommunicated
7. Practice anger management

I'm working on this. Usually ok I think but DS used to have a speech delay and I got used to saying things for him/translating. He has told me severely that I need to stop blush

Sorry this is so late blush
