Develop strong communication skills and it’s sure to impact your life at every level. You can start by simply being more aware of how others communicate and act with you when they’re in your company.

  1. Make solid eye contact. You acknowledge someone’s presence when you look him or her squarely in the eye. If you let your eyes wonder, it could be an indication you don’t feel comfortable with that person.
  2. Keep your body language in check. Try to mimic the body language of the person with whom you are talking. Leaning forward can give the appearance that you’re interested. Never tap your fingers or foot while engaging in conversation with another person.
  3. Work on your conversational skills. Developing your conversational skills is always a good idea. You can practice with close friends or family members. With practice, you get better over time.
  4. Develop good writing habits. There’s always room to improve your writing skills. Make an effort to learn correct spelling and word usage.
