Communicating with impact is a powerful skill to have.
But how do you ensure that people do what you desire following a conversation with you?
Here is a simple but powerful tactic you can use.
Before you speak with your audience, whether it’s an audience of one or of many, be very clear on 3 key things.
Make no mistake, if you want to use your communication to create results you have to be crystal clear and be able to answer the following questions without hesitation.
- What do I want my audience to FEEL to make this communication memorable?
- What INFORMATION do I want my audience to have to make this communication meaningful and relevant?
- What specific ACTION do I want my audience to take as a result of my communication with them?
If you devote a few minutes to answering these questions before each communication you deliver in person or in writing you are guaranteed of getting a result from your communication. That is, you are guaranteed of having impactful communication.
This is imperative. You must do it. Don’t brush it off as being simplistic.
Do it, master doing it each time and watch your influence grow.
