Explanation:

Effective communication is essential in the job of a disaster management professional. Communication skills play an integral role in dealing with the survivors and reassuring them that the government or the nongovernmental organizations are working towards their recovery.

Whenever professionals talk with the survivor, they must make the people understand the situation and use the appropriate sound or tone so that the audience gets involved in the conversation.

Whenever a professional gets a response or a comment regarding the situation, he or she should never ignore or judge a person based on the questions. Dealing with the audience in a very polite way creates a positive environment.

Engaging with the audience is essential; and to do so, one can use the following factors:

  • Ask very concise and precise questions to avoid any confusion.
  • Start asking open-ended questions.
  • The professional should be very focused on solving the issues and also acknowledge the responses of the audience in a positive manner.
  • Whenever you ask any questions, allow the audience to take some time and think about it before responding.
  • Use of very friendly tone to make the environment light and funny
