When it comes to building meaningful and successful relationships with your family, friends, colleagues and clients, effective communication is foundational.
Are You Building Sound Relationships?
The quality of your relationship with any person has a direct impact on the quality of decisions that get made. If the communication is poor, people start making decisions around each other because the trust has been diminished. Also, poor decisions can be made because the information has not been heard as intended.
How Do You Naturally Communicate?
You naturally communicate based on who you are and how you see the world. Of course, how the other person hears the message depends on who they are. So often there is a gap that needs to be bridged between what was said and what was heard. Close the Gap.
One of the keys to success in any relationship is closing this gap by communicating with the other person on their terms and not your own. How the message is communicated becomes as important as the message itself. This is not always easy because when we are under pressure or out of our comfort zone, we will tend to revert back to our natural behavior.
