Enhancing your communication in the work place – In a nutshell, expert advice from Teresa Bulford-CooperClick here to view the transcript
Tell me now; do you ever feel that there are some people you feel really comfortable with, like you’ve known them forever, and with some people you just can’t seem to get along with them no matter what you do?
Well, you may be amazed to know that there is a way using language patterns that can quickly connect you with the person you are talking to, no matter who they are.
Extensive worldwide studies have proved that we all communicate with three very different unique languages. Everyone has all three; the challenge is that most people prefer to use one of these languages more than the other two, which can be noticed in their body language and speech.
One is visual, in other words, looking at things, another is auditory; listening to things, and the third is kinaesthetic, meaning; by doing things. Let me give you an example…
Say, for instance, that you are talking to a visual person; you would show them the way things would look and how to see their way through things. An auditory person would want to listen to an explanation and hear about things, and lastly; with a kinaesthetic person, you would walk through the problem with a hands on approach.
By listening to people you can pick up their preferred language; visual, auditory or kinaesthetic.
Now, when you start talking their preferred language, you will find that you will be able to build a better rapport and see better results, because they will get, see or hear where you are coming from.
Well that’s all from me at the moment, thank you for listening.
