According to Warren Buffett, learning this skill changed his life.
Warren Buffett told a young entrepreneur that the way to become worth 50 percent more this year than you were last year is to naturally invest in yourself. More specifically, hone your communication skills, both written and verbal. The legend of Omaha said:
“If you can’t communicate, it’s like winking at a girl in the dark–nothing happens. You can have all the brainpower in the world, but you have to be able to transmit it. And the transmission is communication.”
Here are 6 ways to master your communication skills.
- Slow down your speaking rate.
- Be aware of your voice pitch.
- Maintain eye contact.
- Smile with your eyes.
- Match your body language with your message.
- Mirror the other person.
