This article gives tips on how to successfully communicate with coworkers, your boss, or any person in general. They talk about how spending a little time thinking about what you want to say before delivering can go a long way and help get your point across better. Visual aids will really help the audience stay engaged and interested in your topic as well. One of the examples of effective communication is the what the U.S Navy do. They have a 3 step procedure on how to train soldiers- “tell them what you’re going to tell them, tell them, and tell them what you told them.” This way, you will get your point across and everyone will be on the same page moving forward. It also mentions how it’s important to know who the audience is, so you can choose your wording carefully and speak so everyone will understand what you’re saying. Feedback should also be welcome, and that way you’ll know if your audience interpreted your message correctly.
I can benefit and use this information by putting it in use anytime I am speaking with my peers, coworkers, or my manager. I will use the 3 steps the U.S Navy uses in order to give information because that seems like a very effective way to inform people as clearly as possible. I will tell the person/group of people what I’m going to tell them, tell them, and then repeat what I told them. Hopefully with more knowledge like this I can be a more successful speaker and effectively communicate in a business setting
