Important factor to communicate.
Communication is totally based on EEE and that is effective, efficient, effortless.
Effective-People have this common thinking that if they use big terms or if they speak alot,very fast then they would be able to transfer their ideas effectively which is wrong. Effective itself means that no matter what you are talking it should put an effect on person who is listening. Make sure what you are saying is understood to everyone and the tone in which you speak should be calm not in a very high pitch.
Efficient- while giving a presentation in any official sector or even in schools the main point should be considered that your points delivered to the listener should give efficient idea about topic your delivering. Only efficient points is mentioned because if you give a speech which does not cover all the points in given time then the listener would be left with half knowledge. Even if there is no time limit and you elaborate alot then there is a chance that listener might get confused. Always keep it short and sweet.
Effortless-Nowadays in most of the business sector the language used is English. Even if a person is not fluent in it and just has a basic idea of speaking skill than it’s enough to deliver a proper speech. The only thing is that one should never put pressure on each and every word while talking. Avoid using very tough words which can make you nervous when you pronounce them. The fear of pronouncing wrong starts panicking a person which results in stress and effort on every word that clearly show’s how you are uncomfortable while talking in that particular language. Your uncomfortness will be shown in your voice and that will make the listener less interested in listening to you.
The basic tip is to follow the EEE to avoid mistakes while communicating.
