One of the key components of a successful career in the fashion industry involves being a good communicator. No matter how skilled you are, you must learn to be a good conversationalist. Otherwise, your fashion business will suffer from it. Don’t despair! As with all things in life, positive communication skills can be learned.
These days you can take a course to learn everything from culinary skills to public speaking. You may not know how to begin. It can be helpful to make lists of your specific goals. Meditate on exactly what you want out of your fashion business. Some people dream of creating their own clothing line while others simply want to learn how to run a clothing website. Whether you are communicating with your staff, family or even yourself, you can improve the way you speak. Try these tips below.
Make eye contact. Always look people in the eye when speaking to them or when they are speaking to you. Looking away can make others feel as if you are not listening. It only takes a few moments to stop what you are doing, fold your hands in your lap and listen.
Positive Facial Expressions. Whether you are speaking or listening, try to remember to smile a bit. It doesn’t have to be a huge smile; just make sure it isn’t a frown or negative expression. Most people read facial expressions without even realizing it.
Don’t rush through life. Allow time for meditating and thinking about what you want in your life. Your fashion enterprise could grow huge or simply become a family business.
