50: It’s How You Say It
Subscribe to the Podcast!
It’s not always what you say, it’s how you say it. When it comes to communicating your message, there are many ways to deliver it.
From Facebook instant messaging to emailing or calling someone, technology provides us with plenty of ways to contact someone. It can be overwhelming deciding which platform will get your message to the other person effectively. So how do we decide how to communicate with the people in our lives?
Your mom may like to hear your voice on the phone, while your boss may prefer to speak to you via email, so it’s all in writing in case they need to go back and reference something.
Whether you’re communicating with friends, family, a client or your work colleagues, each person has their own preferred style of communication.
In fact, there are four preferred styles. It’s important to know how to recognize the different ways that people want to be spoken to, the type of words to use for each style and people’s preferred methods of receiving a message.
Knowing how to communicate effectively will save you a lot of time and will go a long way to helping you avoid misunderstandings and potentially difficult situations.
