The Art of being a Good Communicator

The Art of Being a Good Communicator

Ronald Reagan was the 40th President of the United States. He is often remembered as a great communicator. His skill in communicating was put down to three basic traits.

1.    He was simple

2.    He was clear

3.    He was sincere

And those are fundamental rules to follow whether you are communicating verbally or in writing.

Be clear 

Describe exactly what you mean.  Avoid generalities. Be specific.

Be to the point 

Say and write what you have to communicate and nothing more.  Cut out extraneous facts and long explanations.

 Use simple words

Don’t use a big word if a small one will do.

Just remember that the art of good communication involves all of the three points above while never forgetting to be really effective at Active Listening.
