Episode #107 When the Rules Change

Episode #107 When the Rules Change

Welcome to the show!

Today I'm wrapping up the series on effective communication, just in time for Thanksgiving if you are in the US.

People are going to be people and that means they are going to change the rules. That's okay but what needs to stay consistent is communicating that the rules have changed and maybe even why they have changed.

If you want to avoid conflict, hurt feelings, burned bridges and all sorts of calamities in relation to communication, when the rules change communicate it. If you change the rules, it's your responsibility. If you feel the rules have changed on you, it's your responsibility to find out what's going on.

Open lines of communication through all scenarios, listening and speaking your truth beautifully are key to effective communication.

Always be aware of what your thinking and perceiving. Sometimes your perceptions are off but sometimes they are spot on. It's always best to keep the lines of communication open through all the ups and downs of business and personal relationships.

Make sure to get your voice plan in place for 2018. Time is up to get visible and audible and everywhere you turn, people are speaking their truth beautifully...it's time!

If you need some help getting your voice ready to head into a spectacular 2018, just email me tracy@captivatetheroom.com or head over to the website at www.captivatetheroom.com

Episode #102 Non-Verbal Communication, What Your Saying but Not Saying

Episode #102 Non-Verbal Communication, What Your Saying but Not Saying

Welcome to the show!

Today I continue on with the voice and effective communication series and I'm not using voice!

Today we are talking about non-verbal communication. There are very positive non-verbals that we use for sure but today I'm focusing on the non-verbal's that we use in a negative way to try and communicate what we think and feel.

Non-verbal communication is used in a negative way far too often and here's the thing...we won't figure out what's wrong, ever!

Today I'm going to discuss what non-verbal communication is and focus on how we use it for negative impact as well as how we can stop relying on non-verbals to get our message out clearly and effectively.

Everyone has relied on non-verbal communication at different times in their life to get their message across, some more than others. But, all of us have had to deal with people in our personal and business life that have used non-verbals in a negative way. Today you'll get some techniques to combat your own non-verbal mishaps and know how to better manage non-verbal communication from others.

I think you're going to like this episode and don't forget to share this voice and effective communication with people you know who could benefit from a few new techniques.

Episode #101 Using Caution w/ Words, You Won't Like What We Hear

Episode #101 Using Caution w/ Words, You Won't Like What We Hear

Welcome to the show!

Today I'm talking about something that I think you might find interesting and surprising and something I've not talked about before.

As we continue the series on reclaiming your voice and communicating more effectively, I want to talk about what happens to your voice when you try to say the right thing.

Often times we know someone is going to be upset with us or is upset with us. So, we try to adjust our words so that the other person won't retaliate or to avoid more conflict. But here's the thing. When you do this, temper your words, your voice lets the cat out of the bag. You may be saying the words that you think will help you avoid conflict but the other person will hear things in your voice and the things they hear may not work in your favor.

It's possible that while you are trying to say the right thing, the caution in your voice could be received as indifference or not caring. Ultimately, you might just be creating a bigger problem than if you just spoke your truth, said what you need and want to say but spoke it beautifully.

I think you are going to find this episode very helpful!

Episode #100 How Your Tone of Voice is Hurting or Helping You

Episode #100 How Your Tone of Voice is Hurting or Helping You

Welcome to the show!

WOW!!! 100 Episodes! I could not have done this without your support. Thank you so much for being a listener, a subscriber, a downloader and a reviewer!

I love this show and I'm so grateful for your support.

Today on episode 100 I'm talking about a topic that is really close to my heart. I'm very sensitive to the tone of voice people speak to me and others with. Tone makes a big impact on most of the people you communicate within your business and personal life. Tone speaks volumes!

The thing about tone is that it can really help create your success or really hinder it. The unfortunate part is that tone of voice is hurting too many people in their communication with others ultimately slowing their connections and success. Just like non-verbals, we use tone because we struggle to say what we need to say, struggle to really express our emotions so we rely on letting those emotions out in our tone rather than just using the proper words. But the tone of voice you use can literally wreck your business and personal relationships.

I'm still on the effective communication and voice series, your tone of voice is an obvious part of it.

Today I'll be talking about why and how your tone of voice can create problems for you and what you need to do to change your tone. I think you're going to really love this episode and this one you might definitely want to share with others so they can check their tone!
