14 Mar Communicative world
Today, I want to talk to you about communication. Nowadays, we call nearly everything communication: speaking, writing, wearing clothes, walking, playing music, singing, drawing and so on. And we are right.
We communicate every day, at every time and through every ways.
I am writing about this concept because I think that people often forget that speaking or writing are not the only ways to communicate. Everything we do, we behave, is communication.
We are living in society, surrounded by others. The way you dress, you make up, you walk on the street, and the way you look to others have a direct influence on the relationship you will begin with people.
For instance, if you plan to have a speech, you have to adjust your speech to the listeners, using the good words in order to reach correctly your target. But you also have to think about everything around this speech: your clothes, your appearance, your movements etc. You should have always in mind that after the meeting end, approximately 20% of what your listeners have in mind, is about what you said. The 80% remaining belongs to your appearance, tone of voice and all the things about you: the sympathies you release, your charisma…
So, in order to control the interpretations the people can have, you have to keep your own personality, but you should never forget that your behavior and your appearance influence positively or negatively on your relationships results, with positive or negative business consequences.
