Do You Communicate Both Ways?
With my Executive Mentoring clients, there is a common complaint that their teams don’t listen to them and they can’t understand why.
My experience has shown that your team are more likely to listen to you if you listen to them first. The basic rule of communication is “You have two ears and one mouth, use them in that ratio.”
What about your team and your colleagues,
do you listen to them?
You don’t have to agree with them but do you listen to them. Again I am not talking about just hearing them but actually listening to them. I KNOW it feels like it takes more effort but the reality is, with more clarity in your communication there is a reduced need for repeat communication so it actually saves time.
So do you communicate both ways?
PS DON’T FORGET this Thursday 20th June at 4pm Australian Eastern Standard Time I will be running a 45 minute session on 5 Keys to Get the Response You Want.
It is all around the art of communication – both speaking and listening. Numbers are filling fast so find out more details and register here.
