- The trick to professional communication is to control ourselves and work on our own communication.
- It is not okay to just have good professional communication and crappy intrapersonal communication.
Social Media and Communication
- Before smartphones came along, people were reading the newspaper, so there was still a communication disconnect in society.
- Social media gives you access to a larger network of people, much larger than ever before, which opens up global communication in addition to local.
- Social media can make you feel bad about your life, as you are only seeing the ‘highlight reel’ of someone else’s life and not the full ‘trailer’ of the ups and downs in the journey.
- Social media is a skewed reality, which can cause us to not want to share or put on a fake persona.
- We don’t want to have a ‘social mask’ on when connecting with people because the persona ends up being fake, and you want to end up being vulnerable and create a real connection.
- Personality tests skew what we think we are able to do based on the outcome of the test.
- Being an introvert has nothing to do with whether or not you are going to be ‘good’ socially. It just means you need resting time that you do on your own, whereas extroverts do that with their friends.
- These are just people who can speak well in front of a group or motivate their team.
- People who become good communicators are that way because they have emotional intelligence.
- The same skills that come from persuasion and influence are communication skillsets that translate to business and parenting.
- Communication is one of the top factors in creating relationships.
- Getting people to like and trust you directly relates to whether or not you get the result you want.
- Communication is cooperative and not competitive.
- There is a fundamental lack of understanding in couples when it comes to entrepreneurship. This has a lot to do with communication.
- You can’t change other people’s communication; you can only change your interpretation and the way you take it in.
