Communicate Authentically with Others

Authentic communicators are people who project open-mindedness, understanding, and confidence. They reach their personal and professional goals by creating worthwhile ideas, by being steadfast to their own principles, and by motivating and involving others. Authentic communicators understand themselves, and they understand what motivates others. They take into consideration basic communication styles and are willing to be flexible with their style to meet their goals, as well as to help others meet their goals.

The most successful communicators succeed by developing their own potential, not by trying to imitate others. Being authentic involves being your best, truest self - warm, open, and human. Authenticity creates a climate of trust because it promises others the freedom to act without a need to build protective walls. This positive atmosphere establishes rapport, cements relationships, and enhances communication. The actions of authentic communicators are in tune with their words, and they have no need to say, "Do what I say, not what I do."

A realistic grasp of their own capabilities and a recognition of their limitations is another trait common to authentic communicators. Accurate self-assessment of your personality in general and of your specific communication skills is invaluable.

When you know your strengths, you know how to capitalize on them; when you acknowledge your weaknesses, you can work on them. You avoid the trap of clouding your communication with irrelevant and distracting attempts to hide weaknesses - because you already acknowledge them and are taking action to overcome them.
