Learning to communicate effectively benefits both your personal and professional lives. If you're lacking the skills to be a good communicator, here are some ways to develop them:

Listen actively

Good communicators are good listeners. To demonstrate that you are paying attention, active listening entails responding to what others say with affirmative responses and asking follow-up questions.

Pick up on non-verbal cues

Body language and facial expressions tell a lot about a person. Adopt a proper posture, avoid slouching, and maintain eye contact to indicate that you're listening actively.

Take your time to respond

You don't have to respond immediately with the first thing that pops into your head. Take the time to create a quick draft in your head to speak clearly.

Master the art of timing

Great communicators know how to pace their words effectively to ensure their audience understands what they're saying and to create an impact at the right time.

Ask for feedback
