Constructive Communication


Constructive Communication - Examine what happens when you talk to others

Most people would describe themselves as being considerate, clear, and fair during negotiations, problem solving, and leadership discussions. There are two ways of knowing how you are doing – 1) look at the results, and 2) ask the people you are talking to. Would you like to improve your communication?

Here is the good news: To communicate constructively and achieve your own goals more efficiently, surprisingly, you often need to do less than before.

Here are the 7 key omission tips for effective communication:

  1. Avoid making hasty assumptions. Instead, ask open questions.
  2. Don't always insist things be done your way. Delegate authority and let your team make decisions.
  3. Never respond in anger. You negotiate better with a cool head.
  4. Restrict giving speaches. Solutions often come more quickly through dialogue.
  5. Never issue threats. Being fair triggers long-term success.
  6. Shorten your sentences. You save time and avoid confusion.
  7. Don't dwell on past mistakes. Convey a positive future instead.
