In this section we consider some common challenges that many people face in their daily interactions and try to explore some possible solutions. One common problem is being overly assertive when communicating with others. Being assertive may sometimes be helpful in building good relationships. However, if it is causing you great stress, then it may be counterproductive to your overall efforts to communicate and build confidence.
To avoid this situation and ensure that you are communicating with confidence and authenticity, identify the problem areas that are causing you stress. Then find ways to deal with those problems so that you can remain confident. Remember that you may not always be able to solve every problem, but you can take small steps to improving your relationship with assertiveness. It is also important to be careful not to turn all your communication skills into an assertive act, as this may backfire. Instead, make sure you are communicating your needs and interests in a non-pushy way.
Another common challenge that many face in their efforts to communicate is not communicating with the right expectations. Many people assume that just because they have a clearly defined goal and plan it must be communicated in a clear and assertive manner. However, this is not the case. A simple project plan is far more effective than a detailed task list. When communicating with confidence, you should also be communicating project expectations such as expected outcomes, time lines, milestones and deadlines.
Another key element to developing your project confidence and gaining the trust of others is to maintain eye contact. Eye contact is very powerful when communicating with others. When you maintain eye contact, your body language shows that you are interested in the person, which creates the impression of being confident and trustworthy. When making small talk at a party or social event, look directly into the person’s eyes to gain their attention, which will give you the opportunity to quickly get their attention in return and establish a friendly conversation.
Communicating with confidence is also about listening effectively. People often have trouble hearing or unable to understand another person’s perspective. To help gain a better understanding and rapport, listen to the other person’s perspective without interruption. When communicating with others, take note of and reflect on what they say and keep track of how long it takes for you to reply. This practice allows you to both express agreement and clarify any points of debate.
Finally, communicate with confidence through body language. When meeting someone for the first time, look them in the eye without necessarily meeting their eyes. Also, use the relaxed body language that most people naturally employ when speaking. Use your hands when making statements, allowing the other person to notice your gestures and verbal cues.
Remember that you don’t need to speak with a voice to communicate confidentially. You can speak with a silent stance or use hand gestures, facial expressions, or even hand positions to communicate your thoughts. With practice, you’ll find that you naturally come across as confident and capable. Just remember that communication doesn’t need to be perfect; it just needs to be sincere and clear.
