🎯 🗣Communication is the act of connecting with other living things… It is the key to personal and professional success..
🖍 You can have a brilliant idea,you might be the most intelligent person but if can't communicate effectively, if you can't convince people, all your ideas will go no where.. It will just be an idea on paper's

🔻Everyone has to know how to get their messages across as clearly as possible..
❇ Communication can either be written ✍ or verbal 🗣
❗Everyone has a style of communication.. There are a few common skill traits that we as communicators must all posses…
1⃣ _Trait number 1:_
*Ability to connect*— in order to pass your message across effectively you must connect with your target audience and be able to convince your non- target audience if they are around to listen to you.

🗣A good communicator needs to be Patience. Listening and Patience go together.. ▪Think first before you speak.. ▪Don't let anger or sentiments control your speech.. ▪Don't be in a hurry unless you are giving an elevator speech, even then you need Patience to get your ideas across

Everyone like I said before is a communicator.. ▪We must learn to be observant.. ▪We must observe our environment, what we ▪can say and cannot say in a particular environment.. We must observe the reaction of our audience this will determine the path our communication will take..

❇ Why do we need to learn how to communicate.. ❓ ▪I am not an educator now? ▪I work for myself? ▪I don't work in an office now? 👉These are some of the responses I get when I talk about communication to a non- target audience
✍ Everyone had ideas.. Everyone has dreams.. Everyone has a personal vision.. Everyone has a mission.. Everyone has friends,family, relations.. Everyone has to make a living..

🗣 Communication is a very powerful tool..
✳ Let me tell you a personal story…
👉 My child had learning difficulties while she was young.. I quit my job to help home school her..
❗No one could understand why she wasn't learning.. We all believed she was being lazy..
📗 I read a book on the act of listening… I applied it to her…
👩🏫 I stopped everything academic.., Observed her.. Applied emotional intelligence.. Listed to her.. Was Patience.. Connected with her on her level..
✔I discovers that we didn't get her method of learning.. She is a rote,visual Kinesthetic learner
🔺 Once we discovered that…she flew with her own wings…
♦That is just an aspect of the benefits of communication..
🔚 Let's stop here…… Hope you all have learnt something right .. ❓
