Are you an effective communicator? Have you had a chance to listen to read last week’s blog on asking questions? If yes, you are one step into this week’s topic: The ABCDE’s of EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION.  Yes, step one is “A” = ASK Qs!

Speaking of which, I’m planning a Q&A podcast episode where I answer listeners’ Qs.  Here are a few Qs that I already received from listeners:  

  • Why do you like to do podcasts?
  • What would you tell your 18yr old self, now knowing what you know?
  • What do you think is the #1 most important communication skill?

The Qs can be about my research, about communication, about the podcast – whatever. Please bring it on!

OK – let’s do this!!!

THE ABCDEs of Communication

Have you ever been at a meeting, and you notice there’s someone who seems so confident and effective in their communications – and you wish you felt the same? Because of my research, I’m constantly monitoring what people are saying. And lately I’ve been observing their body language. It’s fascinating how some people make it seem so effortless. (Yes, you can be that guy!)

After you’ve listened to this 20 minute podcast episode, you’ll learn a simple but incredibly powerful formula that I promise will help make you a more effective communicator.

This is Talk About Talk episode #24 and I’m calling it “The ABCDEs of Communication.”  Why am I calling it “the ABCDEs” instead of the ”ABCs”?  Well, there are 5 steps:

I encourage you to read this list, listen to the podcast, and try to memorize the ABCDEs. 

If you’re reading this blog, I’ll bet you’re what we call a lifelong learner. ? You might be done your formal education, but you’re always looking to step it up a notch. ⭐️ You’re one of those people who know that learning takes effort, but it’s worth it. ?

If you’re a visual learner like me, you might want to print page two of the shownotes for yourself.

The effort it takes to improve your communication skills is worth it.  Communication skills are critical. According to FastCompany, communication skills such as asking questions, displaying positive body language, and active listening, are VITAL.


Qs, Qs, Qs,…

After compiling these quotes, I wondered, which ones do listeners like the most?  I’d ❤️ to know!  Please email me or post on social media to let us know your favourite quotes.  (Or maybe which ones you don’t like?)

And don’t forget to reply to me with your Qs for the upcoming Q&A podcast! Even just one question would be fantastic. Please!!!

I hope you enjoy the podcast on the ABCDEs of Communication.

As always, I encourage you to forward this email or send this link to your friends and colleagues who may also be interested in learning about how to become more confident communicators.THANK YOU !
