A single web page on all you need to know about communication?
Now that is good communicatin'!
This page will help. Yes, this will get you started in basic communication skills via my own experiences and via content (and a communication test) from respected communications-related websites. Skills for good communication await both you and I - oral skills, listening skills, even effective interpersonal communication skills, the lot.
Your job (and mine) is simply to read and to put into practice. Enjoy. Oh, and do get involved please, and tell us what you think! But now, some talking waterlillies...
What the Self Help Collective says...
Well, this is what you'll find on the Self Help Collective website - the communication of many, all carefully selected and commented on by me:
What I say...
I have a confession to make: I think I'm pretty good at communicating. I'd even go so far as to say that said communication skills - verbal, written, listening - are one of my strengths.
I also know that I make many communication mistakes each and every day - as do people who have relationships with me - so I could definitely do with improving and becoming more effective at communicating.
Yes, there are days when I listen closely to people and respond accordingly and there are other days when I can't wait to finish their sentence or I'm thinking about something else at the same time as they're talking to me. Ooops!
Worse, though, are the times that I've already decided that whatever the person is going to say to me is 'wrong' (and you only have to read self-help books like How to Befriend Your Shadow or Bonds That Make Us Free to understand how self-sabotage can undermine effective communication). This type of behaviour does not make for good interpersonal relations, oh no!
So my final thought: good communication should never be taken for granted - that's what I say...
