Communication is the number one thing that trips most of us up. At work, in relationships, with our partners and kids; good communication makes things progress smoothly while miscommunication creates conflict and stress.
So what are some of the major communication pitfalls?
Misunderstanding basic human needs is a big one. Good communication isn’t just about words. It’s about touch, sight, sound and smell. It’s about understanding the love language of your partner and understanding how your children want to be communicated with.
A critical part of good communication is understanding the other person’s perspective. Maybe you need to ask questions and listen with empathy in order to truly understand where someone is coming from?
