Communication Skills

Improving communication skills and awareness is one half of Communicatio Ratio. Humans are constantly communicating with others, even when they are unaware of it. Even when we’re not speaking. How you carry yourself, your body language, your facial expressions, your mannerisms, how you dress, what you’re doing, what you’re not doing, who you’re with, and on and on — these are all sending out information to the world around you. And whether you like it or not, people react to this communication in a number of ways.

Become more effective at communication, then, is a two-part process:

  • learning how to be aware and in control of what you’re sending out into the world
  • learning how people are likely to respond and taking this into consideration

What is the aim and who are you communicating with? #

The other primary considerations when it comes to communication are your goals and your audience. Knowing these two things will help you prepare and put forth your best.

Common Problems #

Because Loricism’s main focus is on removing obstacles, common problems in communication that need to be overcome include:

  • assumptions
  • faulty arguments or logic
  • cognitive biases
  • insufficiently presenting the information or pitch
  • incorrect audience
  • overcoming objection, rebuttal, or misaligned intent
