Video Summary:
Issues in communication can be devastating to careers and intimate relationships. Conversely, remedying communication issues will reap rewards for your whole lifetime. Six key areas sum up the most common failures that contribute to communication issues.

The six pillars of effective communication are: assertiveness, authenticity, open-mindedness, empathy, clarity and listening.

If you have something to say, say it assertively, so you will be taken seriously. Identify your values, boundaries, and own agenda, so that you can communicate them authentically. Smiling and being afraid to contradict someone may be interpreted as being inauthentic. Be open-minded to the positions of others, which helps you grow as a person.

Be empathetic to your listener, which builds common ground. The more clarity you use in communicating, the less likely it will be misconstrued. And don’t just hear; demonstrate active listening.

    I've always seen and heard people using "CLARITY" in their communications and i have always been fascinated and wondered what that is and how they do it. Well thanks to you Leo, now i know. I'll work on that and incorporate it in my communication skills from now on. Thanks one again.

    Okay. I'm in a part of my life when I want to say things but I talk really low so I just stay quiet. I used to be so confident during school but people just got to me. I stopped talking when I always tried to make my friends happy and now I've lost my 2 closest friends because all they did was trash talk me. I dunno what to do anymore. My family doesn't help…all they do is call me a "loner" without knowing the reason why. My confidence and self esteem has decreased dramatically. I need to know myself all over again but I don't know where to start…

    talk too much. Everyone in here came to improve their communication skills owning their own purpose. You don't need to equalize(?) why people in here need to build communication skills

  12. Vicente Carretero says:

    Hi, this video helped me a lot. I really have problems communicating with people (I really don't talk). But now I'm having problems at school trying to express my opinions to a group about a story we have to write. I disagree in some things, but I can't talk about it without the fear of creating an argument. There are some very stubborn people who want to make everything by themselves, and I don't want to remain silent like always.
    Any suggestions will be helpful! Thanks!
