Judge Yourself
04:39

Consider this- after a long business trip or a hectic week, a friend calls you to share something, you are so overjoyed that you don't listen and are busy speaking and interrupting making your friend feel unimportant. Learn how to avoid this, and its Professional application.

Statement 1
06:43

Does it seem sometimes that people instead of having a conversation are having 2 monologues simultaneously? Know its root cause and how you can avoid it to have good communication in personal as well as the professional setting.

Statement 2
07:34

How a person is sitting while talking, where his/her hands are placed, the expressions, the context etc. tells volumes. Listening to just to what is being said is just a fraction to the extent of communication possible. Learn how to recognize some basic body language and know what kind of body language you should have while listening.

Statement 3
06:47

Do somethings seem illogical,you just can't seem to understand why does someone get angry over such petty things? Does that keep you from connecting to that person? Know how to avoid feeling disengaged from the conversation, and fostering empathy.   

Statement 4
03:54

Consider this- you and your colleague both attended the same meeting but both of you ended up with totally different projects. One was praised but other wasn't, as his interpretation didn't match with that of the boss. Every person cannot have uniform cognitive processing but to make sure that both people are on the same page, I have got you covered. Apply this tip to minimise misinterpretations and individual differences in understanding.

Statement 5
05:12

Sometimes the person interrupting while you speak seems encouraging, and sometimes it seems rude and irritating. Learn how to not be that irritating person but one who motivates to speak more and make others feel comfortable.
