Motivational Power Quote
A Basic Law of Communications
“The basic rule of human nature is that powerful people speak
slowly and subservient people quickly - - because if they don’t
speak fast nobody will listen to them.”
Michael Caine, English Actor
As I see it . . . . . . .
The basic law of communications
Speak at a pace so that the person that you’re communication with . . . . will listen to you and understand what your saying.
People have difference speech patterns . . . . When you can identify the persons patterns . . . . you can match and mirror their pattern to help you to communicate with them at an affective level.
A good rule of thumb for this is to match and mirror . . . . the speech patterns and tone of the person that you’re communicating with.
By matching and mirroring their speech patterns . . . . the tone of their voice . . . . the pace that the person is speaking at the start of the conversation. You will begin to develop rapport with the person that you’re communicating with creating a comfort level in the conversation.
You will also be building a bridge to better understanding in the communications.
By matching and mirroring the other party communication style you will have to engage the person through active listening . . . .too hear and understand what you’re saying.
After a few minutes you will be able to adjust you pattern of speaking back to your normal communication style . . . . The person you’re your communicating with will adjust their speech patterns . . . . and will start match and mirror your communication style without give it much through.
A basic law of communications . . . . speak to be understood . . . . When you match and mirror the person that your communication with. Your speech patterns and communication style and active listening will draw the person into the conversation . . . . and create the basis for mutual understanding.
