Deadly Communication Mistakes to Avoid – 3

Here is skill #3 for today; (if you missed skill #2 yesterday, click here):

ASSUMING YOU KNOW IT ALL – everyone would have come across a know-it-all and everyone knows how deeply annoying it is to keep hearing, ‘Oh! I know that!’ When someone else is talking empty your mind of bias and prejudice, which by the way includes assuming you know what the person is talking about. Try to catch the talker’s point of view; you will be often surprised how different the subject is from what you thought it is. Good communication skills demand that you never assume anything. Stay unbiased.

About Dr. Surya

Using Quantum Physics and business research, Dr. Surya explores the correlation between the science of consciousness and patterns in the business world, to suggest innovative ways of using this wisdom to lead and succeed in a business environment that is constantly evolving at a rapid pace. Self-awareness is the awareness of the self as separate from the thoughts that are occurring at any point in time. Without self-awareness the self perceives and believes the thoughts that are occurring to be who the self is. Self-awareness gives one the option or choice to choose thoughts being thought rather than simply thinking the thoughts that are stimulated from the accumulative events leading up to the circumstances of the moment. Along with his work as an Author, Writer, Blogger and popular Internet Radio Talk Show Host, Dr. Surya is in-demand as a public speaker. Clients include small to large corporations and individuals.
