Skillful Communication


Today's tips for how to communicate more effectively come from Matt Tenney and Tim Gard, authors of the new book, The Mindfulness Edge.

To achieve skillful communication, they recommend you:

  • Prioritize listening over talking.
  • Speak in ways that are helpful. If you don't have something helpful to say, something that would add value over silence, it's better to say nothing.
  • Refrain from offering opinions unless asked to do so or when it is absolutely necessary.
  • Be mindful while using electronic devices. Avoid multitasking.
