5 quotes about communication that will make you think

Quotes about communicationIn the field of human relations, effective communication is very important. Yet communication or lack of it is so often the cause of so many of our problems. After all it’s not what we say, it’s what we mean. In this post there are 5 quotes about communication to help you consider this point.

We may think we’ve said something clearly but did the other person understand the meaning of our words in the way they were intended? Did we use the right words to convey our underlying message?

All too often we fail to get our message across clearly. Then we can find ourselves arguing with someone due to a miscommunication when in fact both parties have no underlying disagreement at all.

If you’re the communicator then it is your responsibility to ensure that the receiver of your communication understands its meaning clearly. It is not the receiver’s job to work out what you really meant. And of course it’s not only what you say, it’s the way that you say it.

I can use exactly the same words with a different tone and convey a totally different meaning. For instance if you walk into a room and I say your name warmly and with a smile then it suggests I’m pleased to see you and you will respond accordingly.

Alternatively if I scream your name as you enter that same room then you will conclude that I am not happy with you at all and you will become very defensive.

So think carefully before you speak. If you’re in any role where you are a leader of people then good communication skills are vital if you are to execute your duties successfully.

So learn the art of good communication and remember that your tone is as important as your words.

Treat people with respect and they will respond well. Put them at ease when speaking with them and make sure they clearly understand your message as it was intended. Good communication is essential for effective leadership.
