We all communicate with several people everyday, all day long, on a regular basis. But how do we know if we’re communicating in a proper and understandable way? There are 3 main types of communication, stated on Sales Management 2.0, to which all communication falls into one of those 3 categories. Which communication type do you think you are?
- The third, but the most effective form of communication, is “Dialogue” or “Socratic Dialogue” as I position in my e-book. This form of communication is a pathway for arriving at the “Truth” yielding ultimately a collaborative approach (with consensus) to move things forward. When implementing this form of communication, one helps the other to define and realize the real consequences of given situational factors or scenarios.
Obviously the 3rd form of communication is the more preferred way of communicating and also the most effective. This is where all parties involved have a chance to equally speak and discuss the topic.
