Do you speak up in an assembly and no one pays attention? suddenly someone interrupts and instantly has the spotlight.
Do others pitch their ideas and get noticed but when you try…nothing. At some point, each of us needs to make an impression on people, sell what we have. My company will change the world; please invest. I’ll be great for this position; hire me. I think I’m in love with you; give me a shot. Whatever it is we always want to be heard.
In a world that’s full of noise, it’s easy for our message to get drowned out. How do we speak so that others want to listen? Science has taught us that the “way” we talk to people makes a huge impact on whether they will give a positive feedback or not. Luckily, there are very specific and effective ways to construct a communication so that it goes well.
first what is your message. It is important to ask yourself what is it you want to talk about. This is the 21st century, people don’t want to hang around and have their time wasted. Time is important, so if someone is going to give you their time, it better be worth it. You must evaluate the quality of your message.
always keep it short and simple… keep it short and keep it on topic. everyone has that tendency to bring up lots of old issues in an effort to prove their current point. Stay focused on the topic of the moment. Quit driving off unnecessarily. resist tossing in a variety of other topics. Communications work best when they are very focused.
INCREASE YOUR EYE CONTACT:
Decent eye contact engages others. Think about that tingle you feel when you make eye contact with someone. Others feel that too. That’s human connection. You’re sensing the presence of another human being. When you don’t make regular eye contact, others don’t feel that “tingle” from you. In my experience, this is a major reason people get ignored.
If you feel deep down what you have to say isn’t interesting or important, that will change how you interact with others. It affects your voice tone and volume. Your face gives off “micro-expressions” you can’t control, but others subconsciously notice. All in all, this causes people to discount what you say as unimportant. In other words, when YOU believe you’ll say boring stuff, it becomes a self-fulfilling prophesy.
OFFER TO HELP:
If people feel or get the air they aren’t the sole party responsible for action, they might be more likely to agree to change.
Proffer a solution to the problem you noticed, instead of just running through the problem over and over.
