Hey Ambitious Professionals! It's Linda Raynier of lindaraynier.com guiding you
to a career and life you'll truly enjoy and in today's video I'm going to walk
you through three tips on how you can communicate more clearly and effectively
especially when you're at work in a meeting or you're going on a job
interview this will be very helpful to you especially if you have trouble with
expressing your thoughts clearly
now as a career strategist I've been able to help numerous professionals land
their dream job offers and if this is something that you're interested in
working with me one-on-one then I will give you details about that at the end
of this video through my years of experience of working with corporate
professionals I have recognized that one of the biggest confidence boosters or
confidence killers for any individual has a lot to do with their ability on
how to articulate their thoughts and words in a clear and engaging way
essentially what I'm saying is if you're someone who struggles to communicate
effectively this has probably had an impact on your career and to the point
where you may not have been able to grow in your career as quickly as you would
have liked so today I'm going to share with you three things that you need to
know so that you can speak more confidently moving forward whether you
have a conversation with a colleague whether you have to make a presentation
in front of a group of people or the next time that you have to go on a job
interview tip number one know that you're the expert if you find that you
are struggling with being able to articulate your thoughts and ideas and
you lack confidence when you're talking to your boss your co-workers or to an
interviewer even if it's a topic that you know a lot about it's likely because
you're consuming yourself with thoughts like I hope I'm not saying the wrong
thing I wonder what he or she is thinking of me I hope I sound competent
right now those kinds of thoughts are hugely distracting and they actually
cause you to waver and to sound shaky when you're trying to deliver these
conversations and that's why you need to shift your focus away from self-doubt to
knowing your value this is especially applicable to you if you've been at your
company for a while but you haven't seen progress in your communication knowing
you're the expert means that you recognize that in your organization you
are specialized in the work that you do nobody else in the company whether it be
your boss or your other co-workers knows more about what you do then you you are
the expert so that means that you need to trust in your own knowledge and the
experience that you have that you've been able to
develop in this position you can't second-guess yourself to the point where
other people start doubting you as well so the next time that anyone in your
company comes up to you and asks you a technical related question about your
work or a topic or subject that you should know stuff about and that you do
know stuff about you need to answer it in a way that an expert would you have
to put yourself in that mindset and say how would an expert who knows my role
inside out be able to explain this to another colleague or to a boss in the
company and this leads me to tip number two tip number two says know how you tie
into the bigger picture by asking smart questions this is a pattern that I've
seen quite a bit amongst certain professionals who end up working in big
companies such as big banks or government organizations and the issue
or pattern of experienced is that they only know what they do but they don't
actually know how it ties in to the bigger picture they don't understand how
their role plays a key factor in the rest of the organization and because of
that they only know what they do and they only do what they do and even
though they're the expert at what they do they're very limited in what they
know if you don't understand how your specific role and your the
responsibilities and the duties that you do play into the overall bigger picture
within your company within your department that is a major issue and
that's going to cause communication issues for you in and it's going to show
up in your workplace especially when you have big meetings where you have to
explain your part and you're going to be explaining it to other colleagues or
higher level managers or bosses and they're not getting why we are doing a
certain thing just because you were told that this is how you do something from
the beginning doesn't mean that you do it robotic aliy and you don't understand
why you're doing it so that plays into your communication as well so the
antidote to this is to ask questions don't ever be afraid to ask why you're
doing something especially when it doesn't seem to make sense or when you
really don't understand why professionals who know how to ask my
questions are also the ones that are able to identify process improvements
they're able to drive efficiencies because they recognize the reason why
they're doing something and they're able to figure out better ways of doing it
and when you ask smart questions it gives you the comfort that the work that
you do actually serves a purpose and finally tip number three to
communicating effectively is know when you're not the expert one of the biggest
mistakes that I see professionals making in their workplace and that diminishes
their own personal brand is when they talk about a topic as if they're the
experts when the action when in actuality they know very little about it
and because they are not the expert or they don't know very much about that
topic but they keep talking about it they say a lot of wrong things and what
happens is this leads to issues where when you say things that aren't true or
that don't make sense people will lose trust in you and they will no longer
come to you for answers in future instances people will appreciate it if
you are authentic and genuine and are willing to admit that you may not know
so much about a certain topic area because it doesn't happen to be in your
line of expertise so how do you handle a situation where you don't know much
about the topic firstly you don't say I don't know and you wipe your hands clean
and walk away that's not the way to do it instead what you need to do is take
it as a learning opportunity and tell the person who you're speaking with
something along the lines of I'm not an expert in this but I know that blank is
how about we approach him or her to assist us with this to know when you
don't know something shows maturity and self-awareness nobody is going to
criticize you if you don't know something but you work hard to try to
figure it out but people will criticize you if you act as if you know something
and you end up just speaking gibberish so there you have it those are my three
tips on how you can speak more confidently and clearly now if you are
someone who's been on the path of searching for a better job a new career
