Good communication is: Clear, Concise, and Compelling.
- Clear conveys a lack of ambiguity: that the idea has been targeted for a single message.
- Concise conveys certainty of thought: that the idea has been carefully thought through and stated simply.
- Compelling conveys a call to action: that the idea has been presented to encourage a response from the listener.
Communication is at the heart of making a connection with others to build rapport, trust, and accelerate business outcomes.
Whether you are responding to an email, delivering a presentation, expressing your opinion, or asking a thoughtful question, use these 3 communication elements as a check list to be sure your communication is always the best it can be.
