The 3 Steps To Communication Mastery

Written by Peter Murphy

You limit yourself. Yes, it is true. Each day you behave in much repparttar same way as you have always done. You act out your habitual ways of dealing with people, and you communicate as well or as badly as you normally do.

Although you know better, you do not apply all that you have learned when it comes to makingrepparttar 101841 most of yourself. If this is true for you, then how are you going to improve?

Awareness is key. Until you spot what you are doing you will not know where to make changes to how you talk to people. How can you change what needs to be improved if you do not see it yourself?

There is a very simple way to generate awareness of how you behave with other people. A way to develop perspective that is not clouded by your biased perceptions.

Picturerepparttar 101843 surroundings, hearrepparttar 101844 sounds and feelrepparttar 101845 atmosphere ofrepparttar 101846 place.

Then run throughrepparttar 101847 entire conversation again, only this time imagine that you arerepparttar 101848 neutral observer. See yourself andrepparttar 101849 other person talking and listening to each other and noticerepparttar 101850 dynamics ofrepparttar 101851 conversation. Pay special attention torepparttar 101852 non verbal reactions.
