To be an effective communicator and get your
message out to others, a person must be able to:
1) Connect 2) Respect
and 3) Affect.
Even though the above words may all sound quite
familiar - they each come with a different connotation that describes each one
separately and uniquely.
To connect with someone means to go that
extra distance - to know who they are and where they have come from in life. It’s
important to put your words into language that each individual can relate to
To respect any individual is to know that
we all have our own separate journeys - even though we have traveled different
paths to get where we are together today and this not only makes us unique as
an individual but that makes each of us indeed, true survivors.
Each living person resides in a community -
whether they interact with just one person each day or a thousand people. How
you react to your community will affect those around you. Make a conscious
decision to be an effective individual in society rather than just an affected
individual. Be positive, pro - active and purposeful in your daily
communications. Ultimately, endeavor to make the world a better place around
you through effective communications with others.
