7 Things to Avoid In Communication

?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????If you want your presentation to be effective, it would help if you can avoid doing these seven things:

1. Gossip – Just remember this: Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.”

2. Judging – Don’t let your being judgmental get in the way of honest talk. When you judge people, they won’t be able to hear what you have to say.

3. Negativity – Isn’t it hard to converse with someone who always sees the negative in things? Negativity will just keep us from seeing what’s possible in the seemingly impossible.

4. Complaining – Be mindful of your words and actions. Don’t fall into the downward spiral of complaining and always being negative. Be hopeful and positive instead.

5. Excuses – Take full responsibility for your mistakes and avoid blaming others. By apologizing and admitting defeat instead when you know you have done something wrong, you will be seen as courageous.

6. Exaggeration – Getting the habit of exaggerating things is tantamount to lying. Avoid it at all costs.

7. Dogmatism – Know the difference between opinion and facts.
