How To Effectively Communicate with Everyone

With June being Effective Communications Month, I could not pass up the chance to mark the event. As you likely know, the Art of Articulation is not just near and dear to my heart. It’s also vitally important to success in business and truly, to success in all your personal relationships.
Articulate people use language and body language to win the hearts and minds of their listeners. You have to be able to connect to others on a deeper level. And above all, you must always be authentic.
Here are 4 tips to ensure that you sound articulate, no matter who you’re speaking to (from a dear friend to a multimillionaire you’re meeting for the first time):
  1. Speak with confidence. I don’t mean puff up your chest and act as though you’re the most important person in the room. I mean, channel your inner confidence that you’ve nurtured through self-care, daily gratitude practice, and self-love. Ensure you’ve got great energy and a smile on your face, when appropriate, as well.
  2. Like, uh, um, you know. Cut out all the filler words that don’t help get you to your point. If you need a moment, take a brief pause. That will provide emphasis instead of making it seem that you don’t know the answer.
  3. Avoid fancy words, exaggeration and word repetition. Your goal is to be clear and concise. Overly intellectual words can sometimes cause people to feel like you’re intentionally being condescending or talking over their heads. You also don’t have to hyperbolize or repeat thoughts to get your point across.
  4. Use active listening skills and ask thoughtful questions. This also requires you to be present in the moment and to not let your mind wander.
Another important element for effective communication in business is the Elevator Pitch. Your perfect Elevator Pitch will help you turn every stranger into an ally. I like to describe the pitch as using the right language, tone, attitude, and body language to convey a message. When someone asks, “What do you do?” do you know the right way to answer?
