Effective Communication 101 | Peoplelogic.ai

What are the Main Components of Communication?

  • Moderating your volume — The tone of your voice projects images in your audience’s mind. If I were to describe a beautiful butterfly with deep purple wings gliding on a Spring breeze but do so with a monotone voice, would the vibrancy of the image in your mind be bold or dull? Varying your tonality or volume is not only a way to keep your audience engaged but also sends clear signals about how you feel about the message you’re delivering.
  • Placing emphasis on key words — When you selectively emphasize words, the sound of a message changes. This sends a signal to your audience that says “Hey! Look at me!” Emphasis can be caused by slowing your pronunciation of a word, stretching a vowel sound, adding body language, or even repeating a certain word. Understanding what you want your audience to pay attention to is key to where they assign meaning to your message.
  • Displaying genuine enthusiasm — The ability to feel and express enthusiasm can take you from being ordinary and forgettable and transform you into a compelling and memorable communicator. However, genuine enthusiasm requires preparation and energy. Enthusiasm doesn’t mean you have to wave your arms emphatically or be dramatic — true enthusiasm comes from being engaged in your topic and confident in your knowledge and message. This type of enthusiasm only comes from within you and in your unique and authentic way.
