Hi, my name is Brooke Miller, Psychotherapist and founder of Soapbox Therapy. And today, I'm going to offer you some tips to help you break the barriers towards effective communication. Effective communication is all about saying what's on your mind and making sure other people here you correctly. A really common mistake is assuming that other people know what you are thinking, know what's on your mind, and know the point that you are trying to make. I got news for you, they have no idea what's on your mind. You are the only person who knows what you're thinking. So in order to learn how to be an effective communicator you are going to need to get used to saying what's on your mind. Here are a few tips to help you get started on this new effective communication adventure of yours. First thing you should do before an important conversation is make a list. Write down the main points that you want to get across and the main message that you want to describe. If you give too little detail to people they might not know what you are really trying to get at. And if you give too much detail they might get lost in all that chaos. So you write down what you are trying to say. Plan on it, you can stay focused. So be clear, be straight forward, and just say it. And if someone is going to be mad at you or judge you for what you really think or what you really feel, that's not really a person you want in your space anyway. So be an effective communicator and say what's on your mind. My name is Brooke Miller from Soapbox Therapy. And those are just a few tips to help you break the barriers towards effective communication.
