Good Morning it's another week and we're still on learning your ABCD's on developing your millionaire gent image. I hope you're seeing how each area is connected. We've touched on your Appearance, your Behavior and now we'll move on to Communication.
Let's start with something very important and that's listening to understand and not to respond – Too often I’ve seen folks in conversation reacting and responding before the other person has finished speaking. As a millionaire gent you should be an exceptional conversationalist because you've mastered the art of listening. Listen with intent, receive the full message being communicated and process it instead of waiting to reply. Always let the speaker finish, don’t interrupt unless you need a point clarified or something else requires your immediate attention outside of the conversation.
Articulate and Enunciate – Ever so often in these newsletters you'll realize I always encourage that you read more, not only for knowledge but because it helps with your vocabulary. Being able to use a cornucopia of words and displaying excellent verbal expression is a good thing, don't worry about those that may think you're showing off. The key is using the right words at the right time without coming across as though you’re trying to showcase you have some sort of academic accolade. What’s the point of all that vocabulary if no one understands you. Gents, also please think before you speak, most times people fumble because they rush to speak to be part of a conversation when they have no knowledge on what is being spoken about. Just listen, enjoy the conversation and enjoy the company you don’t always need to be a contributor.
As always I have a Gents Tip Sheet for you, it covers proper etiquette for business and social communication.
