Answer

It is good to give everyone the benefit of the doubt and not judge others too fast. I always try to think of other people as good. It is often surprizing to find a person who you judge really has a lot of offer and is better than you think. Still, you must be aware there are some who do not have good intentions. But it is better to think good of people than bad.

Answer

Communication is talking or writing to other people. A company may want someone to communicate to customers or to the newspapers, usually in the form of a letter. An external contact to the orphage could be someone wanting to adopt, government officials, or physicians to check on the children.

It is important to make sure your communication is clear and not confusing. It must be what your supervisor wants you to communicate to the outsiders. Often an organization will have official forms and methods they want to use.

I hope that helps you. Best wishes in this job.

Engineer wants to communicate better

Topic: General

Question

July 15, 2004

I am an Indian, also i am engineer in electronics and communication. One of my weakness is poor communication.i hope you can help me to improve this



thanking you
yours faithfully

Mohammed - India

Answer

The first part of communication is carefully watching and listening to find out what the other person wants to know. Technical people often have problems expressing information to the non-technical. It is an art to take a technical project and simplify it so others can understand. In fact, it often takes so much work that the typical engineer will give up.

This problem can be worse if there is a difference in language or dialect. One solution is written communication, provided it is done carefully and not in haste.

Wants people to listen

Topic: General

Question

June 9, 2004

Hi:
I got 79% average on my report card, but I need a lot of improvement at every subject. I want to be excellent, but i'm not good at oral and communications, because my voice is really small, whenever i talk, people don't seem to notice me, and I am very shy when i'm talking, if i say something, and people refuse me, I just go away, not like all of my other classmates, they keep saying things. And I was just passed E.S.L in 2003. september, and when i was having a conversation with people in a group, other people start talking about these stuff and other stuff that are very popular in our region. But I can't think of a topic to get talking to them, when they are talking about those singers, all the perspectives about them, I don't know what to say and whenever i was talking, people don't seem to really interest in what I am talking. And I really want to improve my oral and communication skills.

Answer

Communications is expressing your thoughts verbally or in writing. When English is a second language, it is more difficult to do than in your native tongue. But it is an important skill to perfect.

A public speaker must first get the attention of the audience and then their interest before they will really listen. The same is true in speaking to a class or in conversation in a group. Someone with a booming voice can get attention easily, and people may listen even if he is not that interesting.

Also, the impression people toward a person can influence whether or not they listen. If people think you are shy, they tend not to pay attention.

This makes it difficult to become part of the group. But it is not impossible. You must learn to be a good listener and be able to ask good questions that will get others to talk about their interest. People like to talk about things in which they are interested.

A person with a soft voice who is trying to get in on a conversation must wait until the right moment to say something, otherwise the people with the loud voices will get the attention. A good thing to try is to ask a question about what they are talking. For example, if they are talking about their favorite singer, you can say, "May I ask you a question?" Then wait until the person gives you his or her attention. Then say something like, "Why do you like (singer) better than (other singer)?" This will let the other person answer you and is a start for getting into the conversation.

Until you find people with the same interests as you have, you will need to listen and ask good questions about what they like, in order to be able to join in. Listening will also give you knowledge about their subject so that you can talk intelligently about it.

By improving your communcation skills, I am sure your grades will go up and soon you will be a champion in your classes. Best wishes in school, and let me know how things work out.
