We use communication as a tool to give love, affection, and encouragement and when we choose to support the people that need it, we are helping them develop and succeed.
We say and do have an impact during the moment and as a source of support for their years moving forward.
There are two steps to becoming a good listener: to give our full attention and to listen deeply to the other person without judgment.
We can transcend the perceived differences that we have with another person when we listen to them and look at them with warmth without any conditions - this act is called unconditional positive regards.
Practicing positive communication will help us create relationships of great quality wherever we go.
Humans need connection and closeness with other humans and we can enact this sense of love and collegiality with disclosure of how we think, how we feel, and who we are.
There are three elements to disclosure and these are:
When we disclose something it needs to be congruent with what we feel on the inside and what we show on the outside. Disclosure needs to be truthful and personal.
To compliment people is to choose to affect them and who they will become, along with their sense of self.
We don't realize the impact our compliments hold and studies have found that when we are complimented by the people we look up to or they say something to us that we resonate with, we take in their words and integrate it within ourselves.
In order to get to know the person, our questions must be open-ended instead of close-ended questions because asking the latter type only narrows down the chances and possibilities of opening up more conversational topics.
Communication is more than just transmission. It is creation. It creates experiences and builds relationships, and if we take communication away, it also takes away the relationship.
Starting with a greeting will oil the social wheels and this has been backed by studies stating that when educators do not greet their students, it affects their ability to learn. So, always look for opportunities for connection so that you'll be able to constantly build relationships through and through.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
