Communication Skills - 10

Woman listening gossip

LISTEN...REALLY LISTEN

This last point is something with which many of us have a problem.

How many times have you forgotten a person's name almost immediately after being introduced? How many are so eager to tell our story/opinion that we don't wait until the other person is finished?

Previous posts - #5, #6, #9, all depend on listening. Actual listening. Not just hearing.

I'm guilty, too, of the…

Empathy

EMPATHY

Reviewing last week's post at the point where I mentioned my creative answer to a rejection. The part about her switching to a yes because of my sincere heart.

This sincerity fits with this week's topic. How many times have you told a story or explained a situation and the other person's expression is blank or else tosses off a token sympathy statement?

Sympathy and empathy have different meanings. If…

KISS

KISS

The acronym and the word fits the theme of this series. Because that first kiss is a wonderful goal. To back up a few steps is where the oft used phrase comes into play. Usually related to speeches, I think it also can be used for asking for a date.

Be brief and be specific. This brings to mind post #2, the avoidance of rambling. Again, get in, say what needs to be said, get out.

Well, stay in if…

Whatchu talking about

WHATCHU' TALKIN' ABOUT

Whenever Willis said something to evoke this question from his brother, it usually involved either a crazy scheme to extract themselves from troublesome situation or involved an important lesson Arnold didn't quite comprehend.

If Willis had tailored the message properly, he might not have had to explain it.

Politicians do this a lot. Prepare a speech to be favorable to whatever group…

Stephen, top of the world to you,  and welcome to authors.com  …from The Chuck!
        I write sci-fi novels filled with adventure, mystery, romance, drama, horror, and plenty of comedy… Sci-fi for every adult human to enjoy. I'm also a well-known published poet. When you have a few free moments, please check out my Authors page and a few of my videos and blogs I have recently added. Many of my blogs consist of free to read enjoyable sci-fi stories I plan to unite within a book titled: 'Epic Marvels. One of my newest sci-fi novels is titled: 'They!', which is somewhat related to the 1954 sci-fi classic movie, 'Them!' I'm currently working on a sci-fi mystery titled: 'The Mysteries of Muller Park'.    

Let me know if you'd like to become friends.

The Chuck!

Need help promoting/marketing your book? Maybe I can help. I've just had my latest novel published and am running a contest. Check out my website - http://authorpromohelp.webs.com - and read about it. I'm giving away a Kindle reader just for signing up and a $500 reward for my earlier novel, No Sad Songs. Let me know what you think.
