Effective communication is quite crucial when you’re operating in an organization. If you want to be acknowledged as more promising, smarter and friendlier than your colleagues, you need to convey yourself effectively on paper and in reality. In my view, these are the seven significant communication errors that I should prevent or decrease in my professional life in engineering.
Consideration of distinct backgrounds during communication: People of distinct backgrounds have distinct requirements and expectations. Keeping that in mind, I need to design a particular approach to consider individuals from diverse backgrounds and thus ensure that the message I offer reaches out to them in a clear and concise manner.
Using efficient language: The ideal way is to be easy and clear. Assume yourself in a professional condition, write and talk accordingly. After you are finished with it, read out loud to hear how it sounds. While delivering something, communicate with the crowd as if they were having a one-to-one discussion.
Neglecting hard discussion: The most serious issue I encounter is a lack of faith that is required to resolve challenging discussions. The best strategy is to prepare, schedule and conduct a challenging discussion by offering easy and clear feedback, even when it is hard for me.
Consideration of the crowd: The communicator who tends to overlook his audience can never be able to effectively clarify his message. That’s precisely what I do. The easiest and quickest way to do it is to always expect the crowd to be non-technical and to describe it all in a clear, easy language commencing from start.
Rewriting, reworking and reviewing: Rewrite is a vital component of writing communication. After writing, spend some time reviewing it. This will assist one to delete additional data, solve the grammar and syntax, attach some data that is necessary.
A lack of a significant message: The existence of an efficient message is compulsory. Even if I understand my audience, I lack a meaningful objective or message. To prevent this, I must strive towards the message’s qualitative objective, the required equilibrium, and quality for the corresponding communications.
Being outspoken: Having witnessed this issue personally, it takes a lot to clarify your requirements, opinion and wants. In order to prevent this scenario, be evident, accurate and understood in a very subtle, soft-spoken manner with enormous self-confidence in such a manner that my desires are achieved and connection with others is also preserved.
