How we present to others can make a huge difference in our business and personal relationships. The skills to communicate with others with confidence and competence do not always come naturally. First impressions are often vitally important in a business setting. Our communication style is a product of our personality and past experiences. If you struggle to make a positive first impression, to sell your ideas, or to make yourself heard to others, you may struggle to be successful.
Individuals with self-confidence are able to communicate with confidence in any situation; they communicate appropriately and effectively in any situation. The 6 elements of self-confidence that can improve our communication competence are:
Self belief: belief in yourself, your business and your products
Self-knowledge: knowledge of yourself and your business, including SWOT analysis, and comparisons to your competitors.
Sense of Belonging: belonging to business networks and industry bodies will build the confidence to sell yourself in the marketplace.
Sense of Purpose: The skills and understanding of communication regardless of the situation, together with the ability to communicate at any level.
Communication Skills: The only way to develop presentation skills is to practice speaking ‘out loud’. Rehearsing your presentation will often alert you to phrases that are clumsy or poorly written. It is important to remember that spoken language is quite different to written language. The practice process then will become a process for refining and perfecting your presentation’s structure.
Psychological Flexibility: The skills and ability to think clearly in difficult situations, to be able to shift attention and think quickly, and to manage unhelpful thoughts, feelings and emotions at critical times in business situations.
