Why Dee is key on communication
Richard Branson of the Virgin empire says,
“Communication makes the world go round. It facilitates human connections, and allows us to learn, grow and progress. It’s not just about speaking or reading but understanding what is being said – and in some cases what is not being said.”
He goes on to say that communication is the most important skill any leader can possess, and he has relied on it to drive the success of the Virgin story. Communication has been my life for all my life being the ninth child of 13 siblings needing to be heard and with a daughter with autism that needed to be understood. It’s no wonder I choose public affairs - the effective dissemination of information as my career field in the Navy. My personal life and careers combined have given me knowledge, skills and the talent to pass along through coaching, teaching, writing and speaking.
Communication is important in every area of your life, and plays a key role in your family life, your relationships, your work, and your ability to achieve your goals in life. It’s only through successful communication that you can share your ideas, express who you are, and build a world you want to live in. Yet communication gets very little focus in our upbringing and in our education. In school, students focus on topics like history or science, yet little time is spent on how to communicate all this new knowledge. In business workshops and meetings, we talk about business strategies or the latest technology, yet very little time is spent on how to better communicate on the latest technology platform. We’ve been given all this information, and all of these tools, but not the most important tool to express all of this: effective communication.
The Benefits of Communication
It’s impossible to outline every single benefit of improving your communication skills, as communication is so fundamental to the entire human experience. However, a few key areas come to mind when experts discuss how communication can impact your work and your life.
Communication changes how people perceive you
Having healthy conversation skills and being able to easily communicate with those around you, improves your popularity. People will be more open to spending time with you and be excited to hear what you have to say. Refining your communication skills is therefore an important skill to have in any social setting.
Communication makes your happier
have shown that having good communication skills reduces anger and frustration, as you can better talk your way through a problem. This applies not just in your relationships with others, but also in your own internal self-talk as it applies to self-esteem and the internal dialogue that influences mood, stress and more.
Communication boosts your career
healthy communication enhances your productivity, which in turn boosts your success. When you communicate well, you solicit better feedback, share and receive better ideas, overcome workplace challenges faster and get projects done in time.
Communication empowers you
When you build your communication skills and work on voicing your opinion accurately and authentically, you take back your power. Being able to communicate gives you back your identity and your control over your life.
Communication helps you help other people
By working on your own communication skills, you learn how to better listen and understand those around you. This helps you connect with their heart and soul, and it can build a level of understanding, connection and unity that you’ve been seeking in your organization or community
