Instruction how to be heard
Perhaps the most bad, bad way - to climb everywhere with their opinion, to impose it, even when it comes to the things in which you have little knowledge. Believe me, you'll get it right the opposite effect, earning a reputation for not a connoisseur, but empty chatterbox, spieler. And then in a situation where you really have something to say on your opinion or simply dismiss or condescending missed it by ear.
Remember this simple truth: "To be heard, learn to listen to yourself!" Refers to the interlocutors politely, respectfully. Do not interrupt them, give finish to the end. Even if you did not agree with what they say, do not use derogatory expressions such as: "What nonsense," Refrain from contemptuous sarcastic facial expressions, gestures. It is possible to disagree, convince in the right, not detract from the dignity of the opponent.
Take for immutable rule: to speak only on the merits and only on the topics in which you feel like a fish in water. Beginning his speech, do not go around the bush, do not stray to the minor details. Try to go directly to the case, speak clearly, clearly and convincingly. By doing so, you will quickly earn the reputation of a man who says sensible things, which is to listen to the words.
If you object, in any case does not go to the individual, not to humiliate the opponent, saying who are you to argue with me! Even his objections, to put it mildly, stupid. Calmly and reasonably prove his innocence.
In the event that will have a serious conversation (for example, assigned an important meeting), be sure to try to prepare for it in advance. Consider his speech, clearly dividing it by a short introduction, body and conclusion. If you need more convincing to some statistics - Find them and write down to remember during his speech. Try to predict what may be objections, counter others participants in the call, and consider how best to refute them, insisting on his opinion.
