We all love to "use" the words communication skills and support them with words like authentic, empowered, and genuine, but do we live them? I have used them myself. We do a lot of selling with these words, but we tend to overlook are the actual skills that one must possess to be a great communicator. Do you know how you're perceived? What kind of energy do you project? Can you change it in an instant? Are you comfortable in your own skin? Don't laugh, it's at the core of a solid communicator. When you speak are the meaning of the words expressed in your face and body? The ultimate challenge for any great communicator is how to cause people to feel something, to have an experience. A confident, inspired and creative communicator will find success rooted in their ability to express their life force, conveying thoughts, feelings and emotions so that others are moved by them.
