How Do We Communicate Effectively?

We communicate in three major ways:

1. Spoken: There are two components to spoken communication.

– Verbal: This is what you are saying.

– Paraverbal: This means how you say it – your tone, speed, pitch, and volume.

2. Non-Verbal: These are the gestures and body language that accompany your words. Some examples: arms folded across your chest, tracing circles in the air, tapping your feet, or having a hunched-over posture.

3. Written: Communication can also take place via fax, e-mail, or written word.
