How to communicate with impact
Impactful communcation begins with ……
It’s not what you say. It’s how you say it and how you make your client’s feel. Inject your personality and point of view in order to resonate and be relatable.
Being open & emphatic
Being open to other cultural influences and truly emphatic via your interaction has its own imapct. Ensure what you intend to say is being heard.
Respect your clients by preemptively answering pertinent questions that are important to them. Don’t be generic, superficial, or waste people’s time.

About my fascination with health communication !!!!
My health communication journey started in 2015 when I trained as a facilitator for Brief Action Planning (BAP), a self-management support technique developed by CCMI (Centre for Collaboration Motivation & Innovation). The technique involves using a structured step-by-step process to help individuals set goals and make concrete action plans. I began integrating this technique in my clinical practice & started seeing positive results from my clients/patients. The trick here was that the client/patient was directly involved in taking a decision on what they wanted to do for their health. This really resonated with me and I was obsessed with BAP.
Fast forward 2016 onwards I got several opportinities to train for more facilitator trainings that were all focused on health communication.
