Certain things can make people fail to pay attention to you while speaking to them.

Firstly, we can have a situation where, due to external distractions, people have difficulties paying attention to you while you are speaking to them. The external distractions can be things like noise, things like stuff happening around you, a stench near where you are addressing the people, heat, coldness and so on. They are mostly things that hit the people as sensations from outside.

Secondly, we can have a situation where, due to internal distractions, people have difficulties paying attention to you while you are speaking to them. Here, we are looking at things going on in their minds, their worries, their anxieties, their fears, their hopes, hunger, pain, thirst and so on.

Thirdly, we can have yet another situation where, due to the manner in which you present yourself, or the manner in which you present your message, people are unable to pay attention to you. If, for instance, you don’t have a ‘presence’ people may be unable to connect to you: leading to a situation where they are in turn unable to pay attention to you as you speak to them. It could also be a scenario where the folks simply don’t understand what you are saying, and where they therefore simply decide to (in a way of speaking) switch off.

It is possible to ascertain whether or not people are paying attention to you, while speaking to them (either individually or as a group). Suppose, for instance, that you are talking on a complex subject: like the subject of the workings of the NJ unemployment insurance benefits scheme. Let’s even suppose that you are talking on a particular aspect of it, like that of dealing with www.njuifile.net login requirements. In that scenario, it is easy to lose your listeners along the way: hence the need for you to check, from time to time, to ascertain whether or not you are still together.

One way in which you can ascertain whether people are paying attention to you while speaking to them would be by reading their body language.

The other way in which you can ascertain whether or not people are paying attention to you while speaking to them would be by asking them the pertinent questions. These are questions they are supposed to be in a position to answer, if indeed they have been listening to you. But you shouldn’t take offence if it emerges that they are unable to answer the questions. You may be facing a situation where the people in question have been listening to you, but they lack the capacity to comprehend what you are saying.

One of the key ways of capturing the attention of people when speaking to them is by using your voice.

One way of using your voice to capture the attention of people when speaking to them is by employing the right voice volume.

Another way of using your voice to capture the attention of people when speaking to them is by employing the right voice tone.

Yet another way of using your voice to capture the attention of people when speaking to them is by employing the right timbre (or, where appropriate, desisting from using any timbre at all).

All along, it is important for you to ensure that you are sure of what you are speaking about. Otherwise, on account of the content of your speech, you may end up losing the attention of the people: in spite of using  the right volume, tone or timber of voice. Thus, for instance, if you are talking about the topic of accessing IT support remotely, through the likes of the service at www.logmein123.com, or the likes of logmein.com, or, indeed, logmeinrescue.com, you need to be sure of what you are saying. Otherwise, once you create the impression that you aren’t sure of what you are saying, it will be unfair for you to expect others to pay rapt attention.

Speaking to people is not easy. For one, you need to continually pay attention to certain things, when speaking to people.

The first important thing that you need to continually observe when speaking to people is whether or not the people are listening to what you are saying. If they are not listening, you must not get mad. What you need to do, instead, is to figure out a way of connecting with them better.

The second important thing that you need to continually observe when speaking to people is whether or not the people are engaged or bored. This is particularly important if the topic you are speaking on is one of an abstract nature. If, for instance, you are talking about the services offered by ADP at portal.adp.com, yet the people you are talking to don’t receive their paychecks through the iPay ADP service (as described in this blog post,) then the chances of them getting bored and eventually drifting off are very high.

The third important thing that you need to continually observe when speaking to people is whether or not the people are understanding what you are saying.

The fourth important thing that you need to continually observe when speaking to people is whether or not the people are connected to you (and your message). This has to be emotional connection.

You need to exercise a lot of discretion when speaking to people.

The first reason as to why you need to exercise a lot of discretion when speaking to people is in order to avoid disclosing things you shouldn’t. If, for instance, you keep on speaking without discretion, you may end up disclosing your essential website login credentials to malicious people who can then mess you up. Assuming, for instance, that you work for Macys Insite, whose employee website can be accessed at employeeconnection.net, which is different from the main Macys Insite website, you may end up disclosing your employee connection login credentials to a person who can then abuse them.

The second reason as to why you need to exercise a lot of discretion when speaking to people is in order to avoid creating the wrong impressions. You need to remember that most people have low levels of self-esteem, and they tend to take most things personally (meaning that you can end up creating a bit of misunderstanding where you didn’t intend to).

The third reason as to why you need to exercise a lot of discretion when speaking to people is in order to avoid ending up boring the said people. The inference here is that, as part of your discretion, you should study other people carefully, in order to understand what interests them: lest you keep on telling them about stuff that is of no interest to them, and ultimately end up boring them.
