Empathy Translates Into People Skills

How people relate to the people around them lies at the heart of truly finding alignment on your team.

So how do you set up a blueprint to develop your effective communication skills?

  • Target areas or experiences in your life (personal and professional) where your communication skills let you down.
  • Examine your motives (fear, mistrust, anger, pride) for communicating the way you did.
  • Lay out a framework with details targeting why you want to improve your communication skills.
  • Set milestones with dates to test your improvement
  • Write detailed notes (with dates) marking your successes and setbacks.

Most people resist the idea of writing anything down. At first it seems like a burden. You'll say things like: "I don't have time." or "I don't want to carry a notepad around with me." Any type of excuse is purely resistance to improvement on your part.
