There are auditory means, such as speaking, singing and sometimes tone of voice,</p><p>and nonverbal, physical means, such as body language, sign language, eye contact, walking or</p><p>the use of writing. Communication is defined as a process by which we convey meaning in an</p><p>attempt to create shared understanding.</p><p>We learn basic communication skills by observing other people and modeling our behaviors</p><p>based on what we see. We also are taught some communication skills directly through</p><p>education, and by practicing those skills and having them evaluated.</p><p>Communication Process</p></li><li><p>8/13/2019 Communication &amp; Presentaion Skills</p><p> 4/21</p><p>Communication &amp; Presentation Skills</p><p>Page 4of 21</p><p>Non Verbal Communication</p><p>Body language: gestures, posture (e.g. cross arms), facial expressions and eye contact,</p><p>clothing, hair styles, silence, space, tone, handwriting, symbols and signs.

Kids have an</p><p>uncanny ability to appear to be listening to you while actually paying no attention at all. While</p><p>this is something that may pass with age it is important to help children develop good listening</p><p>skills early. Thy will do better in schools and you will keep our sanity. As the SCANS report</p><p>points out, good listening skills will prepare children to eventually succeed in the workforce.</p><p> When you tell your child to do something, ask him to repeat your instructions Teach your child to maintain eye contact when talking to or listening to someone Read out loud to your child and then engage her in a conversation about what you have</p><p>read, and</p><p> Engage your child in age-appropriate activities that promote good listening skills.Active Listening</p><p>Here are some tips to help you learn to improve your listening skills:</p><p> Listen for verbal clues. Your teacher will emphasize any important terms and concepts Watch for nonverbal clues. Eyebrow, hands, pauses, eyes: these features all show</p><p>expression when your teacher makes an important point</p><p> Be mindful of your own reactions. When your teacher says something that soundinteresting, curious, or surprising, go ahead and nod or smile. If the teacher says</p></li><li><p>8/13/2019 Communication &amp; Presentaion Skills</p><p> 6/21</p><p>Communication &amp; Presentation Skills</p><p>Page 6of 21</p><p>something boring or unpleasant, try not to have an ugly response. Why? To keep</p><p>yourself on track. As long as you are managing your reactions, you are still listening.</p><p> Avoid making predictions. If we think we know what someone is about to say, we stoplistening and start drifting.</p><p> Focus on the words, not the person. Dont get distracted by an ugly dress, weirdhairstyle or goofy tie.</p><p> Dont get caught up on one detail. Stay on pace Dont let your mind wander. Put that food, person, music, or daydream out of your</p><p>head and save it for later.</p><p>Telephone Etiquettes</p><p>20 Telephone Etiquette Tips for Customer Service</p><p>1.

Great presenters start as poor speakers- then they get better.</p><p>Learn from other Great Speech Makers</p><p>Who are the public speakers you admire? Ask yourself why you admire them. What techniques</p><p>do they use in their speeches that you can use? What principles can you adapt to your</p><p>presentations? It could be a great political leader, business executive or innovator. Whether it</p><p>is a Churchill, Henry Ford or Einstein ask yourself, Why does their delivery work so well? How</p><p>can I use that technique or principle in my speech? Look for the skills they used and make</p><p>them your own.</p><p>Purpose of your presentation</p><p>Imagine that you have been scheduled to speak to a group. An important question for you to</p><p>review is Why am I delivering this presentation? Dont answer, Because I was asked.</p><p>Instead ask why does this group need to hear from you?
