Communication ABC
D P Deshpande, CxO / Board, India
Very appropriate and on the ball. I feel that it can be of value to people who have made mistakes, learnt, acquired some proficiency, and are looking at fundamentals.

Tips for Good Communication
Roberta Rizzo, Project Manager, Ireland
Be yourself no matter what they say? This is an important point of view, but not absolutely true, because sometimes one has to be diplomatic and reactive.

Good Communication
Wong Hon Mun, Deputy Director, Singapore
I agree with GS; don't be single-minded otherwise we hear only what we choose to hear.

Communication as a Necesity for Business Break Through
Ibrahim Danyaya, Student (Other), Nigeria
Absolutely right. Be yourself and learn to listen well and ask meaningful questions, by respecting other speakers' oppinions.

Comment to ABC of Good Communication
Johan Bergstroem, HR Consultant, Sweden
I especially like the "listen" part. Create a relaxed and forgiving environment where people can open up their creativity.
I would like to add to "not be yourself, but be your best self" for me itīs quite the difference.

Listening is a Major Part of Communication
@Johan Bergstroem:
- How do you communicate, if you are unable to give a good feed back. It would be a one way communication.
- Different ideas can have different meanings in people minds, which are forged in their values. How do we understand each other if biases are not lifted?
- I would rather suggest to make the message clearer through questions and answers. Finetune the communication and be on the same channel.

Comment to ABC of Good Communication
Alexander Nebotov, Investor, Ukraine
@Roberta Rizzo: I think "Be yourself" here means: "do not pretend to be someone else for getting a situation better". It does not pay in the end.

Communication is Different
Roberta Rizzo, Project Manager, Ireland
@Alexander Nebotov : I think that if the message is clear and direct strikes often the audience because the boring and artificial sermons nobody like, in general.
@Johan Bergstroem : I agree with your point of view, but sometimes the questions can disorient the audience.

Add a bit of Humour in Communication
Brita Singh, Professor, India
I certainly agree with what GS Radjou has said. I would like to add that showing a sense of humour is also essential. I don't mean telling cracking jokes, but the ability to lighten the atmosphere and look at things differently and more positively.
Taking oneself too seriously can often defeat the purpose of communication. Hence the need for humour.

Listen and Give Good Feed Back
miguel, Consultant, Mexico
Hello GS, it is impossible not to communicate because we are communicating in different ways, including body language.
The recipient must have the ability to listen and empathize with what the other is communicating, to give good feedback.
