Communication Contest 8



In the past few weeks, I’ve realized that talking about emotions is just not something people get excited about. It’s not sexy or intriguing. It’s actually kind of scary and nerve wracking at times.


But the payoff is pretty fantastic. Less stress means more joy. Less worry means more anticipation. Less sadness means more fun.


Yesterday, as I was preparing for Saturday’s workshop, I realized there is a key concept/trait that drastically improves communication. So much so that I’d say it’s the number one trait in great communication.


I could just tell you guys what it is, but that’s no fun. Instead, you tell me…


What’s the one thing that makes someone a great communicator?

    Victoria Carrington also had trouble posting. On Friday she said, “The number one factor that makes someone a great communicator is the ability and willingness to listen to others. I learned this surprising fact first-hand years ago. As part of my medical training, I had to work quite a bit with patients and families. As a trainee, I sometimes did not have the all the answers to their questions and did not always have much to say. Imagine how surprised I was at the end of the year when I won the coveted “Intern of the Year” award for my communication skills! I was told it was because of my ability to listen, not talk, that I was noticed by staff and patients. I learned an important lesson through that experience- it is far better to listen than to talk. Listen first and much, talk later and less is a good motto that I try to live by in both my personal and professional relationships.”

    Knowing that your partner’s communication style may be different from your own, and making an effort to speak that language even if it’s out of your comfort zone.
