Communication Killers

Continuing our mini-theme, here are some things guaranteed to kill a conversation at 20 paces.image 26 Communication Killers

  • Classic putdowns and the inappropriate use of humour
  • Increasing the volume – don’t scream!
  • Verbal overkill – otherwise known as going on and on
  • Shifting the topic
  • Suggesting they do things that we don’t do ourselves
  • Body language – a shrug of the shoulders communicates a lot
  • Finishing their sentences for them [so frustrating!]
  • Simply not listening

Communication is a two way process, so sitting their silently doesn’t work too well either.
