WANT TO BE A BETTER COMMUNICATOR? ONE SIMPLE RULE.
Updated: Aug 30
Want to be a better, more effective communicator? Get in the habit of saying less and being more succinct. Period.
Fact: your audience’s attention spans are short and getting shorter. We all suffer from saying too much in emails, in meetings, in presentations, in conversations. And when we say too much eyes glass, smart phones come out, etc. Worse yet, we clutter and obscure the key takeaways. Aka when you say too much, you are really saying nothing at all.
The simple rule for better communication: make a habit of getting right to the point and then saying less. Because to say less is to be more effective.
See? I’ve already said too much.
