Communication skill has nothing to do with degree and education, because it is not necessary that every educated and degree holder has good communication skills. But it can definitely be improved by keeping some things in mind.

Body language is a kind of non-verbal communication, in which you say everything through body gestures without saying anything. By looking at body language, you understand everything about the person in front of you, so if you want to improve your communication skills, then it is important for you to keep your body language right. Through your body language, you can easily make the other person understand your point. While talking to people or in meetings, you should not keep your hands in your pockets or fold your hands. You should use your body language properly to make the other person understand your point.

2. Listen to others carefully

If you want to improve your communication skills, then you have to listen to others very carefully. This will help you understand what they say well. Initially, you may make some mistakes while talking, but when you keep practicing daily, your mistakes will reduce and you will be able to communicate properly. That is why listen to anything carefully and then learn to speak.

Before communicating with anyone, you have to understand what he is saying as well as him. You have to know what he wants to say to you. Only then will you be able to communicate with him. So first understand the other person’s words well, what he wants to say, what kind of expression he is giving and after understanding him well, give your answer.

Also, the person in front will also remain confused.

Meet Manicka

I created The Social Work Success Path blog and podcast, during the pandemic of 2021 to provide online education and mentorship for Social Workers. I felt very isolated and disconnected being only in the second year of running my private practice. I strongly considered going back to work when everything shut down. The resources and tools that I share helped me to maintain my practice through the pandemic and plan a successful transition as a Social Work content creator, doing work that I love and connecting with Social Workers all around the world. I did this in the span of 1 year, but using the resources, trainings and tools that I have pulled together, and all my all lessons learned, you can make your career transition much sooner than I did!
