Bad for the career?
And then worry that what is said is bad for the career? This does not happen if you take the well-known saying:
Turn on the brain before using the mouthpiece. Or simply: talking is silver, silence is gold.
We can not communicate
And then another slogan: "We can not not communicate". Right. Even if we do not speak, our body, our gestures, our facial expressions speak. And that's exactly what an experienced, successful listener should pay attention to in order to gain the necessary information.
But that only works if you focus on other people and even shut up! Less is more (another saying that is true).
Silence - but right!
It is therefore evident that whoever can be silent at the right moment often reaches more than through constant gait.
This is true even in times of a constantly falling on us social media tide. Clever silence is the motto.
3 tips for successful communication
But how does it work? Just take note of the following 3 tips:
- Active listening: You should not just think about what you are saying, but also, pay attention to what others are saying. Just listening actively.
- Pay attention to gestures and facial expressions: Not everything that your counterpart expresses, he actually verbally expresses. Often it depends much more on what the other betrays through gestures and facial expressions. Pay close attention to it!
- To endure the silence: Chatter, who have little to say in terms of their content, conversation breaks are very unpleasant. Therefore, you tend to want to fill conversations with ghastles. Good listeners, on the other hand, can withstand the silence. This is how they conduct the conversation, even if they say nothing.
