How can Rocky help to practice interpersonal communication skills?
Here are 8 tips to improve your interpersonal communication skills and how you can apply them with Rocky the AI bot:
- Practice active listening. Rocky will ask you to recall the conversations you had so that you can reflect on the behavior that you showed to your communication partner.
- Maintain your relationships. Be reminded by the app to prepare for meetings with colleges or friends and define who currently needs you attention.
- Cultivate a positive outlook. The app helps you to be positive by reminding you every day of the good things about your life and your job. If you’re upset about a personal matter, set those feelings aside until after work. If you’re stressed about a work issue, look for the positive in the situation and try to articulate that.
- Control your emotions. Being emotional rarely is helpful. Whether you’re extremely irritated, severely depressed or ecstatically happy, take a deep breath and tone your emotions down. The reflection app will help you to mentally prepare for these situations.
- Acknowledge others. One of the best ways to build trust at work is to let your co-workers and other people know you appreciate their expertise. Ask for their help on projects and give credit where credit is due.
- Show a real interest in people. Define who you will dedicate time for in your coaching chats and then make a point of getting to know what’s important to your co-workers, family or friends. It will help solidify your relationships with them.
- Be assertive. It’s important to be assertive. Be confident in your ability and opinions, and don’t be afraid to express your needs, as well as your limits. Practice assertiveness daily with Rocky.
- Practice empathy. Gain a well-rounded view of things by putting yourself in other people’s shoes. This will help you develop empathy for others, which in turn goes a long way in finding solutions that work for all involved.
Communication Styles & Communication Definition
Communication is simply the act of transferring information from one place, person or group to another.
Every communication involves (at least) one sender, a message and a recipient. This may sound simple, but communication is actually a very complex subject. The complexity is why good communication skills are considered so desirable by employers around the world: accurate, effective and unambiguous communication is actually extremely hard.
There are four categories of communication which all need to be championed.
Spoken communication and verbal communication - You cannot plan ahead what you will exactly say in a spontaneous situation. However, you can set up your strategy of communication ahead. Defining the most important points and the preparation for possible questions and their best answers.
Written communication or emails - How do you want to deliver your message? What is your intention behind? What is the interest and need of the receiver and the target audience?
Non-verbal communication - Body language, gestures and how to act. Rocky will assist you with many tutorials on how to behave and these will appear once they make sense in you coaching sessions.
Visual communication - What colors, what tone and what impact those visuals have on your communication partner. Reflect upon last events and remind yourself what worked well.
Is Rocky helpful for nonviolent communication?
Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is a simple method for clear, empathic communication, consisting of ft
Observing others or reflecting about last events
Understanding your or other feelings better
Understanding you personal needs, expectations and desires
Being able to communicate your requests
Rocky will set your growth mindset for these questions and reflect with you.

Body language is essential in many situations. Some would argue that it is just as important as what you say.
When we are in stressful or uncomfortable situations, many of us have habits that can be distracting to other people. Certainly, biting one's nails or continuously fidgeting with one's hands could be distracting from what you are trying to say. These are examples of body language that can be harmful in an interviewing situation, for example. Used correctly, however, body language can reinforce what you are saying and give a more significant impact on your statements.
The following are tips to help you give the right non-verbal clues.
1. The Greeting
Giving a "dead fish" handshake will not advance one's candidacy: neither will opposite extreme, the iron-man bone crusher grip.
The ideal handshake starts before the meeting actually occurs. Creating the right impression with the handshake is a three-step process. Be sure that:
Your hands are clean and adequately manicured.
Your hands are warm and reasonably free of perspiration. (There are a number of ways to ensure this, including washing hands in warm water at the interview site, holding one's hand close to the cheek for a few seconds, and even applying a little talcum powder.)
The handshake itself is executed professionally and politely, with a firm grip and a warm smile. Remember that if you initiate the handshake, you may send the message that you have a desire to dominate the conversation.
Use only one hand; always shake vertically. The right hand is international standard.
2. Facial Signals
We are using a set of stereotypes that enables us to make judgments -- consciously or unconsciously -- about a person's abilities and qualities. Those judgments may not be accurate, but they are usually difficult to reverse.
Tight smiles and tension in the facial muscles often bespeak an inability to handle stress; little eye contact can communicate a desire to hide something; pursed lips are often associated with a secretive nature; and frowning, looking sideways, or peering over one's glasses can send signals of haughtiness and arrogance.
3. The Eyes
Looking at someone means showing interest in that person, and showing interest is a giant step forward in making the right impression.
Your aim should be to stay with a calm, steady, and non-threatening gaze. Rather than looking the speaker straight-on at all times, create a mental triangle incorporating both eyes and the mouth; your eyes will follow a natural, continuous path along the three points. Maintain this approach for roughly three-quarters of the time; you can break your gaze to look at the interviewer's hands as points are emphasized, or to refer to your note pad.
4. The Head
Rapidly nodding your head can leave the impression that you are impatient and eager to add something to the conversation. Slower nodding, on the other hand, emphasizes interest, shows that you are validating the comments of your partner. Tilting the head slightly, when combined with eye contact and a natural smile, demonstrates friendliness and approachability.
5. The Mouth and Smile
One guiding principle of good body language is to turn upward rather than downward. Look at two boxers after a fight: the loser is slumped forward, brows knit and eyes downcast, while the winner's smiling face is thrust upward and outward. The victor's arms are raised high, his back is straight, his shoulders are square. In the first instance the signals we receive are those of anger, frustration, belligerence, and defeat; in the second, happiness, openness, warmth, and confidence.
Your smile is one of the most powerful positive body signals in your arsenal; it best exemplifies the up-is-best principle, as well. Offer an unforced, confident smile as frequently as opportunity and circumstances dictate. Avoid at all costs the technique that some applicants use: grinning idiotically for the length of the interview, no matter what. This will only communicate that you are either insincere or not quite on the right track.
6. The Hands
Proper use of the hands throughout the conversation will help to convey an above-board, "nothing-to-hide" message. Watch out for hands and fingers that take on a life of their own, fidgeting with themselves or other objects such as pens, paper, or your hair. Pen tapping is interpreted as the action of an impatient person; this is an example of an otherwise trivial habit that can take on immense significance in an interview situation.
7. The Moves
Here are general suggestions on good body language:
Walk slowly, deliberately, and tall upon entering the room.
Use mirroring techniques. In other words, make an effort to reproduce the positive signals your counterpart.
Unless a leader can establish his or her credibility, anything they say will be of little consequence.
1. To enhance your credibility:
Always be yourself – and be the speaker you are rather than trying to replicate someone else.
Take your message seriously – but don’t take yourself too seriously. Audiences love it when a speaker makes a joke at their own expense. This builds instant rapport.
Always reflect the mood of the circumstances – that is, be serious when the chips are down and upbeat when things are going well.
Use your voice advantageously – by avoiding a monotone. Inject some voice inflections to add interest. You can fine-tune this by recording yourself speaking and seeing how you come across as a speaker.
Use good body language – by getting out from behind the podium and wandering about the stage. You should also pay careful and deliberate attention to maintaining good (but not overbearing) eye contact. And emphasize what you’re saying by using appropriate gestures. Again, it may be helpful to videotape yourself in action and critique yourself.
Rehearse your presentation – ideally in the same venue at which you’ll be making your presentation. Get all the wrinkles out with a good dry run first.
In addition to increasing credibility, these suggestions also convey authenticity. A good leader-communicator will also be adept at selling their message and engaging the passions of the audience.
2. To enhance your authenticity:
Asking frequent questions – to gauge interest and connect to the audience. Also you can ask a question and answer by yourself when presenting to a bigger audience.
Using symbols, illustrations and metaphors that make the benefits come to life for the audience – so they not only hear what you’re saying but also visualize the benefits vividly and with passion.
Paying careful attention to grooming – because that can have a direct impact on your credibility. For example, a union boss addressing a group of construction workers would never wear a tie because that is the symbol of management. There are loads of similar conventions to keep in mind.
Using music – to remind the audience who they are as people and what common values they share.
Respecting the power of silence – to underscore key points, to show respect, or to allow people sufficient time to reflect on what’s being said.
In many ways, leadership messages are a form of theater. Great leaders arise to the occasion. They take their message from a logical level to an emotional level through the use of symbols and images that resonate with the audience. Leaders have a foundation of passion and commitment, which comes through in everything they say. They then use a set of communication tools to convey that passion to others, along with an invitation to act accordingly.
