Communicating to make connections
As someone who has spent my professional life in the field of communications, I am fascinated by the differences in communication style. Connecting with others is important for our spiritual health; however sometimes there is a mismatch when two people are talking. Be self-aware of your communication style in conversations with others.
Even with good friends or long term partners we do not always know “how” to talk to each other. An article entitled Lost in Translation states “by recognizing and adapting our own style (without sacrificing our authentic inclinations) we can deepen our communication and connection with others”. It is important to be observant and adjust our individual conversational style with each person we communicate with.
You will find that there are certain people that it is just more effortless for you to communicate with and the connections come more naturally!
