Through my travels across the world, with clients spanning from just alongside of “the Great Barrier Reef”, to “the Big Apple” or “City of Brotherly Love”, to the magnificent “Bay Area”, and to everything in-between, Abe Maslow & and a host of others like him have helped me effectively communicate to everyone I have encountered, independent of cultural or ethnic differences. If there are many different keys to the success that company’s, or organizations have experienced after an engagement with me, I’d have to say that single most common denominator in the equation has been“Effective Communication” related!
This post needn’t be long as there is other more relevant ready to do, and conclusion to make for yourself, dependent on your own individual background and experience. For quick tips on Effective Interpersonal Communication, you can read the following post, but as a mandatory compliment, I highly recommend you read The Lost Art of Listening, as through becoming a better listener, you will as a consequence became a much better communicator.
Sometimes our own personal interpretation of facts based on our previous life’s experience get in our way of being able to effectively communicate, or in worst case have our own peace o mind. Several tools that I have found effective in this area are reading Synchronicity, The Road Less Traveled, Loving What Is & attending an extended weekend of Landmark Forum.
I’m sure there are other tools, and I’d love to hear your suggestions, as these are the ones that have helped me in more recent years.
