Watch Your Delivery by Gabriella

Watch Your Delivery  by Gabriella van Rij is a quick read about human behavior. Through the  112 pages I had an overview about the six different parts which affect our communications.

Part 1 –  Action/ Reaction

Part 2- Tone

Part 3- Split Second Judgement

Part 4- Fear-based communication

Part 5- Body Language

Part 6- A Positive Perception

Many a times the message that we wish to convey to the other party may go wrong as they perceive what we say differently from what it was meant to be.

The delivery  of a message is very important . Sometimes it comes out wrong and that’s where relationships start to break down.

How we read a person can determine how we react to what we hear or visually see when a message is communicated.

In a split second we pass our judgement about the message bearer and sometimes our judgement may not be accurate .

My thoughts

It was interesting how Gabriella breaks down  the different components which make up communication difficult.  The way we communicate affects the relationships that we create with others.

Communication channels break down and misunderstandings take place when verbal and non verbal cues are read wrongly.  Personal biases and prior experiences sometimes cloud or hamper proper judgements.

I could relate to many of the comic strips in the book which were used to depict the different ugly behaviors that we may see in society.  The comics  within the chapters make it a refreshing  breaks from the monotony of words.

Do pick up a copy of the book if you would like to know how you can improve on your communication skills.
