What makes a good communicator in business?

There are many factors to consider in regard to how someone can be the best communicator possible in business. Sometimes factors come into play which may, at first glance, not be so apparent. Some people are naturally born as good communicators while others need to work on it. The bottom line is that without combining a number of different skills, even the most charismatic people are doomed to fail as communicators. For this reason I have highlighted the first of many factors which come into play when someone is communicating in business.

Charisma

We all know there are some people that can come into a room full of people and as soon as they arrive, they light up the place with their presence. This type of person has such a strong presence that they are able to draw others toward them with ease. Nonetheless, charisma is not the only factor which determines whether or not someone can be successful in business communication. A wide range of factors also make up the larger picture

Breaking the ice

In this lesson, I have included two examples on how to break the ice with an audience. It's always about day-to-day topics like: the weather, traffic, sports etc. This is your way to get your foot in the door. The more you break the ice with people in the sincerest way possible, the easier it will be to move on to your next step.

Fluency

The way to address your fluency in business English is to try and put yourselves in the shoes of the people who are listening to you speak. Are you going too fast? too slow? Do you tend to make long pauses or choose the wrong words? Such are some of the contributing factors which will make or break a negotiation in business. Without a doubt winning customers and clients over in business is all about trust and your fluency in English is a contributing factor
