Whether you’re at home or at work, you want people to listen to you. Your kids probably have selective hearing, and you don’t want people at work to be the same. If you’re going to command attention from all around you, then you should use the advice below. Take a look…
Use Your Voice Wisely
Make sure you use your voice wisely. You don’t need to shout, not in the workplace or at home with your kids. If you’re using your voice properly, you should be able to remain firm and get people to listen without raising your voice. It’s a skill, but it’s one worth learning. Shouting indicates that you don’t have control over your emotions.
Develop A Presence
A presence will make people respect you. Stand up straight and pay attention to your body language. Shoulders back, head up and make eye contact. All of these things will ensure people feel compelled to listen.
Be Sure Of Yourself
If you’re not sure of what you’re saying, other people will sense it. They will be less inclined to listen. Make sure you’re confident in what you’re saying and that will shine through in your voice.
Practice All Forms Of Communicating
Communication isn’t just about talking, it’s about writing too. Make sure you practice writing, all kinds of styles so that people want to read what you have to say. This can help you to establish yourself as an expert if you become a blogger or influencer, and people will be even more inclined to listen to you.
