People often are frustrated because they think the other person doesn’t get them or that they can’t get help because they are being ignored, brushed over…This little cartoon hits the nail on the head in terms of effective communication. When people want to get help or want to be heard then often they are saying the wrong thing. They are not saying the thing which will penetrate that communication barrier and get their point across. Effective communication comes under the element of social management. If your message is not getting through, management is not going to occur. I think this will be a good little video to show my year 8s when I do social management with them. I often say, can you please ask that question again in a way I can understand or I say, okay, I’ll try and say that again in a way you understand. We often talk about understanding via good communication in my classroom. This video will help that. Curious to see what my students will think of it now.
