It was an action-packed program – talk, talk, play! Training is all about that, right? It’s about getting the message across through activities, instead of lengthy lectures.
We apply the WRESTLing concept but from another angle.
TO BE AN EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATOR, ONE MUST WRESTLE.
In other words, as teachers, we have to be strong at all this four skills – writing, reading, speaking/talking and listening.
Listening and reading are INPUT while speaking and writing are OUTPUT.
Without effective communication instructions and messages can easily be misunderstood and confusing.
- Show excitement
- Be approachable
- Be aware of non-verbal cues
- Use simple language
- Be a good listener
- Be an avid reader
