Communication is at the heart of your company. Your ability to communicate effectively is what captures attention, keeps the interest, creates trust, promotes advocacy, and builds strong lasting relationships with your stakeholders.
When you approach communications with a FEEL First commitment you are agreeing to face Fears (be open and inclusive), have Empathy (your deep understanding and compassion), use Ethics (be truthful) and unleash Love (show energy and passion).
FEEL is the bridge or stepping-stone to extending beyond a point of connection and simple transaction. When you use FEEL as your communications North Star, it’s the first step toward a genuine relationship.
Where does FEEL begin? It’s the point on your communications roadmap where your strategic communications takes you; the place that enables youcan to connect with an opportunity to grow or strengthen your bond.
When you add a FEEL First lens to your interactions, the people you reach will feel closer to you and share more with you. When you FEEL First, you’re saying and showing you care about the people you want to engage.
Tuning in and using FEEL in your communications also means learning about yourself and the ways you come across as a communicator.
Being influential, making a difference and creating an impact with your communication (as The Influential Communicator) requires a present mindset and self-awareness. You are able to achieve communications alignment, from your vocal and verbal cues to your body language. Then, as you master alignment and reach a state of Communications Flow, you can also recognize the signal others are sending to you. Now, you are “reading the room.”
Reading the signals around you, and learning to adjust your communication results in the kinds of relationships that have the opportunity to go deeper, create impact and make a difference.
