I guess we may want to learn more about those we seek to communicate more effectively with. For instance, as a parent, one may want to ask a child: "What is your favorite TV show?". The results are very positive since a child will always open up and at least a parent gets a certain time-limited "window" of free-flowing communications. In the corporate world, it seems, there are always degrees and aspects of grouping involved... For instance, when we get to know the people we work with or work for, we best learn what makes them "tick" Soon we learn how to attract others, as we communicate with them. Soon, we become perceived as a very likable person - someone every body seems to want to have something to do with ;) Cheers

Smile,and care for others.I think it's a good way.Everyone won't refuse a man who is smiling.Do you think so?Of course,work harder privacy.And,maybe you can find some book that teach communication.You can choose the topics just like there children,their dresses,and so on.Everyone likes this. And,sincere is also important.Care for them in your heart.

Check for Toastmasters International Club, http://www.toastmasters.org/, a non-profit orgnization devoted to helping members develop communication, public speaking, and leadership skills. If there is not a branch near you, you may be able to start one. A Toastmasters meeting is a learn-by-doing workshop in which participants hone their speaking and leadership skills in a friendly atmosphere. A typical group has 20 to 40 members who meet weekly or biweekly to practice public speaking techniques. The average meeting lasts one hour. Members learn communication skills by working in the Competent Communication manual, a series of 10 self-paced speaking assignments designed to instill a basic foundation in public speaking. Participants learn skills related to use of humor, gestures, eye contact, speech organization and overall delivery. When finished with this manual, members can choose from 15 advanced manuals to learn skills related to specific interests. Members also learn leadership skills by taking on various meeting roles and serving as officers at the club and district levels, and by working in the Competent Leadership manual and the High Performance Leadership program. They ue a learn-by-doing approach. They do not lecture about leadership skills; instead, they give members responsibilities and ask them to lead. There is no instructor in a Toastmasters meeting. Instead, members evaluate one another’s presentations. This feedback process is a key part of the program’s success. Meeting participants also give impromptu talks on assigned topics, conduct meetings, serve as officers in various leadership roles and learn rules related to timing, grammar and parliamentary procedure. Good luck.
