Good Communication Requires Experimenting with Your Language

Good Communication Requires Experimenting with Your Language | Communicate...and how! | Scoop.it

Consider a delinquent taxpayer who receives one of the following two letters in the mail:

Letter 1: We are writing to inform you that we have still not received your tax payment of $5,000. It is imperative that you contact us.

Letter 2: We are writing to inform you that we have still not received your tax payment of $5,000. By now, 9 out of 10 people in your town have paid their taxes. It is imperative that you contact us.

Changing how you phrase things can pay off.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, February 5, 1:36 AM

Experimenting with language, and simply not sticking to phrases and expressions, just because they have been used for ages, apparently just don't make them effective! Sometimes, official communication is so formal and brief, that the meaning is lost! This is indeed one article that highlights the need to review accepted norms of language for efficacy! The high sounding, "you are hereby warned that" , or "through the columns of your esteemed newspaper" seem too cliched to be effective, and at times the first one meant to intimadate the receipient might in fact add to the confusion!

How to Avoid Communication Pitfalls In the Workplace

How to Avoid Communication Pitfalls In the Workplace | Communicate...and how! | Scoop.it

More men are thinkers rather than feelers, and more women are feelers rather than thinkers. Little wonder when it comes to communication in the workplace, men and women often have difficulty in effectively communicating, and those of the same sex with opposite preferences, also experience the same problem.

 

Until thinkers and feelers recognise their differences, and learn to effectively communicate with each other, communication in the workplace will always be full of pitfalls, for all involved.

 

This excellent article, offers three tips each for thinkers and feelers, to help each to improve the outcome of their communications with the other. . .

Skills Converged > Active Listening Exercise: As Mark Just Said

Skills Converged > Active Listening Exercise: As Mark Just Said | Communicate...and how! | Scoop.it

"Most people are not good listeners. This is even more pronounced when people get excited about sharing their own views or thoughts and like to express them and share them with others quickly. The problem is that in their excitement they miss what has just been said. Over time this can develop into a bad habit leading to miscommunication and misunderstanding.

This exercise is designed to help delegates practice listening to others and avoid jumping in before they have shown that they have understood what is shared. After a few tries, participants will quickly learn to listen carefully and will significantly improve their communication skills by understanding other people’s positions and avoid repeating what has already been stated."
