001CC Audio- Tip 1: The end goal


Welcome to another episode of Me Speaking- Communicating Consciously. This is Leila. I’m your host, giving you a series of communication tips that I’ve learned ALWAYS work.

My tips come from years of self improvement and dedicated interest in this topic. One of the most important things I’ve learned is that we use more than words when communicating consciously. 

We all know what that means… don’t we?

In today’s episode, Tip One, we’ll talk about “The importance of information flow”.

Information flow is when two or more people convey thoughts, feelings, instructions and all kinds of other information in different directions. The goal would be for all parties involved to receive that information and react to it productively while sharing meaningful information in return.

Let me brake that down for you. Have you ever heard the saying “Communication is key for success”. I’ve often heard it in relation to team work.

The continued exchange of information within a team allows them to achieve their end goal in unison. Sports players communicate with their team in various ways during their games. Office staff communicate with each other throughout the work day. Even couples, who I hope consider themselves a team, communicate to achieve mutual goals like buying a home, deciding whats for dinner or anything in their day to day. Friends use information flow to make plans and see each other.

So information flow is important no matter who or whatever reason we’re communicating.

Like I said before, the end goal in any communication is to express an idea, to relay important information, to express a thought or emotion, to share an experience, or to deepen your connection with the listener? It could even be used to solve a problem…

In order for information to flow well, all parties must be active participants. If someone isn’t fully there and aware, the end goal will almost always be missed.

Participating means a lot of thing whether you are the speaker or the listener. Knowing your intention (whether it’s to express a concern or something else), listening, speaking with clarity (assuring that the listener can understand what you’re saying), looking for ways to improve the situation and do it, relate to the speaker the best way you can, validate them, notice and understand body language while being aware of your own.

The important tip I’d like for you take away from any of this is that in conscious communication no one is right or wrong, we are all givers and receivers of information that can allow us to achieve mutual goals.

Now, I want to eat chicken with pasta for lunch, let me go ahead and tell Marco.
