Here is the deal about communication: there is a sender, a message, and a receiver. If you’re familiar with the broken telephone game, you know that good communication skills are key to make sure that your message does really come across to the other person. Some of these skills include: active listening, asking questions, being assertive, feeling confident, using diplomacy, and many others. I must add, however, a skill that isn’t traditionally worked when addressing communication but which I find crucial. I’m talking about being mindful and using mindfulness principles to not only convey your message but also enhance and take your conversational experiences to a brand new level.
