Do you regularly communicate with people who speak English as a second language?
If so, congratulations on being part of a rich and diverse group of professionals. I love working with multi-national companies that are enriched by people with varying experiences and perspectives.
But, with that diversity, comes room for miscommunication.
Employ these three tips to get the best out of the collaboration, without the potential pitfalls.
Speak slower. Your job as a communicator is to make it easy for your audience to listen to you.
Pause more. Your audience needs to absorb what you’re saying. Use shorter sentences.
Eliminate slang. (I’m talking to YOU, Native Speakers!)
