I share your communication issue and struggle when speaking in front of groups of people. I feel this is because as the author states “Face-to-face we receive many more signals than just speech” (2015, p.21).

Firstly, an individual should have a positive attitude about communication through understanding that others see things differently. In this case, one should have the ability to predict the feeling and attitude of the receiver. The person sending the message should be very clear in his mind about what he wants to say. He should know the aims of his message and, therefore, his thoughts should be arranged in a proper order that will not confuse the receiver. In addition to that, the speaker should make it easy for the listener through taking everything into consideration.

Secondly, make sure that all the medical materials are culturally appropriate, translated, or written in plain language.

Many times we find ourselves having a conversation with anyone crossing our path (how else are we supposed to make lifetime friends or just finding good company), and just to be friendly we unconsciously reveal a seemingly innocent smile. Most Americans find themselves in this situation.
