TAKE some time to recognize how you communicate with those around you. Analyze and note down your speaking styles including tone, volume, and diction.
Identify problems, conflicts, or contradictions in how you communicate with others. These trouble areas will become the focus of your personal development and improvement.
When speaking, remember to move at a steady and appropriate pace, using pauses when needed, and enunciating words to avoid slurring. Focus on using appropriate volume and tone.
Identify opportunities to practice and look for avenues for feedback throughout the process. Self-monitoring and review is also helpful to grade your progress.
If you feel you need a helping hand, there are communication programmers and courses available.A number of academic institutions or professional counselors and tutors offer courses and seminars that provide communication skills training.
