3 Benefits of 1:1 Communications Advising
Private lessons are common for athletes, musicians, and dancers. But have you ever considered the benefits of 1:1 communications advising? Becoming a better communicator at work, and in your life, will help you advance your career and become more confident.
When you have a one-on-one advisor, you can focus on specific areas you want to improve. An advisor can work with you over time to help you reach your communications goals.
Like an athlete, the more you practice your communications, the more confident and effective you will become.
There are so many benefits to 1:1 communications advising. Below we’ve outlined 3 benefits that we believe will showcase why booking a session with an advisor can benefit your career.
1. Improved Confidence
Communications confidence is not something everyone has naturally. If you want to improve your communications confidence, you must practice your communications regularly. Having a 1:1 advisor will help you practice regularly, and give you practical ways to improve.
Consider the following:
- Personalization – A 1:1 communications advisor can personalize each session just for you. A personalized strategy will help you gain communications confidence. You can focus on a specific part of communication and master it before moving on to the next area to improve. Your confidence will grow after each session.
- Motivation – When you work with an advisor, you will be motivated to implement the strategies they provide. You are much more likely to achieve your goals if you have an accountability partner. Your advisor is your accountability partner.
- Growth – When you decide to improve yourself, whether it be your communications skills or cooking skills, you need to be able to see your growth. A communications advisor can help you achieve your goals and show you how far you’ve come. Seeing your growth will boost your confidence.
Working with a communications advisor can help motivate you to practice your communications. The growth you see will boost your confidence and make you a more effective communicator.
2. Eliminate Blind Spots
Blind spots are areas in need of improvement that you can’t see yourself. When you work with an advisor, they can point out these blind spots and make sure you are working to improve them. As hard as it may be to hear, having blind spots can really hold you back from reaching your communications goals.
Consider the following:
- Avoidance – No one wants to work on complicated things. Learning something new can be challenging and frustrating. Most people avoid changing their habits. Working with an advisor forces you to confront these things. You can’t avoid a blind spot when working one-on-one with an advisor. Even though it may feel uncomfortable at first, your communications skills will improve dramatically when you confront your blind spots head-on.
- Triggers – You may not notice your triggers, but an advisor will be able to point them out immediately. For example, you may not realize how you fidget when giving a speech. Or maybe you stop looking people in the eyes when you get nervous. These little triggers hinder your overall communications. You don’t even notice you are doing them, but an advisor can point them out and help you eliminate them.
- Gaps – Another blind spot you may have is a gap in your skills. You may be excellent in conversations, but you are lacking in your presenting skills. An advisor can show you communications gaps and help you bridge those gaps, so you become an excellent communicator in every situation.
Eliminating communications blind spots will help you become a more effective communicator.
Your communications advisor is there to support you on your communications journey. This support is critical, especially when you lack confidence. For example, maybe you gave a presentation and didn’t feel like it went well. Or perhaps you have a really big interview opportunity and want to make sure you effectively communicate your value. Having support will help you set clear goals and consistently work to improve.
Consider the following:
- Set Clear Goals – A communications advisor can help you set clear goals. Simply saying I want to be a better communicator isn’t enough. You need to be able to identify how you want to improve and what you will do to make it happen. This is where an advisor can help. When you have a clear goal, you can take the proper steps to move forward and accomplish your goal.
- Consistency – Consistency is key if you want to get better at anything. An advisor will be there to support you consistently. Consistent support will help you achieve your communication goals more quickly.
- Celebrate – An advisor is not only someone who will support you when learning a new skill, but they are also the person who will celebrate with you when you accomplish your goal. Your advisor wants to see you succeed. This kind of support will inspire you to try your best every time.
The support provided by your advisor will help you reach your communications goals more quickly.
