Hi readers! I need some help here. I am so excited that I get to do my first presentation at a major event. Funny how at times things work out. I just want it to be a good one and I am sure it will be.
I am thinking about talking about Communication to a group. There are so many forms of Communication from the telephone, to talking, to now texting and social media. What is your favorite medium to communicate? I am excited about it. I need some ideas for a game and such. Perhaps a small charades game…that would be fun and force folks to use different forms of communication. Perhaps that Telephone game too to show how rumors start etc. I am going to have to look this one up for a fun game.
I am thinking of this acronym too to start off things. What do you all think and what other words would you use. I still have time to change things. Here is what I have:
Communication is so important in our lives. It is how we are able to do things. We need to talk, text, use body language etc to get our point across both at the workplace and home. Communication is a powerful tool and we use it in some capacity every moment of our life whether we realize it or not. Is there a day that has gone by that communication was not a part of it? Even if you are by yourself, your body is communicating with the brain to keep you alive. As you can see, you cannot run away from communication as it is everywhere. What are you thoughts about communication?
If I had to break down Communication, I would do it this way in this acronym form:
C–Choose (as in chose your words wisely)
A–Assume (do not do this–that is why we communicate)
I–Interrupt (don’t do this)
N–No (it is OK to say NO when it comes to communication or not agreeing with something)
That is what I have so far. Anything else? How does your culture or area communicate? Do you have a different style you communicate with those at work versus at home? To you loved ones versus your friend? Any other words that may be better. Help me to make this Communication presentation worth it. Thank you and Happy Communicating! Remember, it is your lifeline.
