Who is an entrepreneur?
An entrepreneur is a person who sees a new opportunity, works passionately over the years to stand out a business or enterprise by using his/her innovative ideas that make a revolutionary impact on society.
What needs to become a successful entrepreneur?
Becoming an entrepreneur demands innovative great ideas, determination, passion, persistence, patience, hard work, leadership, and the most important one i.e, communication skills.
The entrepreneurial journey isn’t simple as so many people think, as an entrepreneur, you’ll meet a lot of people to share your ideas or vision and do business with them but if you are not communicating effectively with your support staff or team members, marketing clients, shareholders, etc….., then you are missing the opportunity to grow your business at peak level.
Several communication skills that will level up every entrepreneur: –
- Be a good listener:-
It is one of the most important skills that every entrepreneur must have/focus on to become a good communicator.
Any worthwhile conversation starts with listening. Most of us are unwanted listeners. We hardly like to listen to another person consciously into the conversation. We just have an aim to put our thought, opinion, perspective first instead of allowing others to complete them. Accordingly, it results in a lack of communication.
As an entrepreneur, your work is to figure out one of the many problems of the people around your community or surrounding and provide the best solution possible to deal with it.
However, if you don’t listen consciously or efficiently enough to figure out the exact problem then how will you come up with the best solution???
- Understanding Non-verbal cues:-
Most of the communication we do day-in and day-out through non-verbal cues i.e, body language and facial expressions, etc.
According to the study, 55% is the body language and facial expressions of our entire communication from person to person.
Good communicators are conscious of their body language, facial expressions and have also the ability to adeptly understand the cues/messages given by others.
- Learn the art of concision:-
Concision is the art of communicating or conveying complete information about a plan, thought, or suggestion in a few effective/understandable words.
According to the studies the average human attention span is merely 8 seconds,
This defines that you need to develop the ability to convey ideas clearly in a short span so that the listener would understand your point as instantly as possible.
