Show Notes

Why do you think so many of us use fillers in communication, stammer when stressed, and are unable to reach the audience's minds through our words? Because sometimes, we need some time to think before we say something. And the best way (we think) we can buy that is by using fillers or other inefficiencies in communication. 

Today, Mike coaches podcaster and content creator Adam Macias on communication, LIVE on the Advance Podcast. Kill your fillers and communication discrepancies as Mike chats with Adam about his life and business to demonstrate the different ways in which ineffective communication show up and how to avoid them. 

You'll learn to slow down your speech (naturally), pause whenever necessary, and do a simple exercise to help you with your communication quickly! Tune in.

EPISODE 5 [SEASON 2] SUMMARY & HIGHLIGHTS

What are the four things you need to avoid in communication?

05:19

The four things to avoid in communication are:

1)    Fillers

2)    Elongation

3)    Stammer

4)    Garbage words

 

How do you avoid using fillers?

09:50

Replace fillers with pauses. Our vocal speech is very different from a written speech. When speaking, we need to pause more often in our expression and allow little gaps in between. 

How do you slow down your speech?

14:45

Practice pauses. You might think that makes you talk a lot slower and that adding up words makes you speak faster, but it does not. If you think your pause would take long, ask for a second.

What is the mirror exercise for communication?

21:45

Stand in front of the mirror for two to ten minutes and read a book. You’ll be able to assess your body language and way of communicating effectively using this method.

KEY QUOTES:

09:25-09:28

“The more we think about it, the more we want to do it.”

19:00-19:03

“Pauses allow you to stop before you say something you shouldn't.”

20:20-20:35

“If you'll just take a moment and fill up your belly, then you'll feel more peace, and you'll have more power, and pauses allow you to do that. Pauses allow you to analyze the room; pauses allow you to smile.”
