How Positive Communication maximizes Business Success?
Learning how to use positive communication to maximize business success is easy. When I was working in the customer service area of a large insurance agency, one of our department managers would often talk to us in a highly negative manner. He would highlight the negative things he thought we did well and tell us that we were leaving money on the table by not performing our best at work. It didn’t take me long to figure out what this person had been trying to say through his voice.
When I was a young child, my mother would always tell me I was a “bad boy”. Back then, I assumed that all bad boys were bad, but that didn’t stop me from trying to improve myself and become a better person. In fact, I did things like start college, volunteer for the Red Cross, and even joined the Peace Corps. Because of my positive communication strategies, I believe I would have made those same choices as a young adult.
Today, I find that the most successful jobs and financial affairs I have involve positive communication. I’m not sure if it’s the change in environment, but I think I am a better person for it. I always try to communicate with people positively and I don’t take a negative attitude towards people or things. When you are in a negative position in your life, it can be hard to muster up the courage to communicate your thoughts and ideas to others. But if you don’t want to lose your mind or your integrity, you must find a way to communicate your positive messages.
You can’t build a successful business or accomplish your goals without having the ability to reach out and communicate your thoughts to others. How you do this is up to you. Listen carefully to the words they are saying, and then speak according to their understanding. That doesn’t mean you always agree with them 100% of the time. However, by listening to what they have to say, you are able to use that information positively.
How positive communication impacts your success will vary from individual to individual. Some people simply aren’t good listeners. However, other people are natural listeners and really enjoy what they are hearing. It all depends on you and how you learn to communicate with others.
People who are successful in business and other areas to understand how positive communication can impact their success. If you are looking for ways to improve in any area of your life, positive thinking will help. For many, this also includes reaching out to others to share your positive message. When others hear how successful you are at reaching out to others, they too will want to be successful.
Learning how to communicate positively in business is not something that will happen overnight. It takes repetition and patience to master this skill. However, if you persist, you will find yourself becoming more positive in your communications in no time. Your message will become more powerful and you will be trusted more by your coworkers.
If you are having trouble finding someone to listen to what you have to say, consider yourself very lucky. Most people who want to succeed in business and other areas don’t have as many great friends as you do. Be polite and offer the person you are speaking with a sincere, positive compliment. Do not use “I” when making the compliment; this will have the opposite effect. Think of it this way: if you are polite enough around strangers to get their attention, you should be able to talk to strangers on a much more personal level than if you keep things personal all the time.
