Communication is the process of transferring our thought, messages to others through various methods or means like written, verbal, or nonverbal. The main focus here is that the listener should understand our message as we want them to understand. It is needed to establish long term relationships for smooth working.

- Put you before me
- Follow P3 formula
Secret 1-Use KISS don’t KILL
Here KISS means KEEP IT SHORT and SIMPLE and KILL means KEEP IT LONG and LENGTHY. We should keep our conversations short and simple because it is better to understand and major points are never missed out. Wherein, If we keep our conversation long and lengthy people may become uninterested. It may also lead to pointless conversations resulting in missing of main points.
Secret 2-Put you before me
This is the secret which is very important as everyone wants to have things according to them. Here you mean the listener and me means the one who is speaking so, speak according to the listener. We should make sure that we talk, speak, and react the way the listener wants us to do.
Secret 3-Follow P3 formula
This is the formula if not followed rest two secrets won’t work because this is not something that will happen suddenly or in a day. We need to do it regularly and here the formula says:
- PRACTICE as much as possible by doing it regularly to develop a habit. We can practice for 30 minutes daily for the best results.
- PLAY to have fun as enjoying what we do is very important and the element of fun can be added by inventing games like doing commentary, dumb charades in English.
- PERFORM to develop by putting ourselves in uncomfortable situations to know how much we have learned. This can be done by participating in various activities like Debates, Competitions, Presentations to get better at it.
If secret no 3 is properly followed using secret no 1 and 2 we can get the best results within 30 days. These are the only things which have helped a lot of people to get better at business communication. This has resulted in growth in life for them.
