Get Your Point Across and Make it Stick
Make your point more succinct and memorable with this three-step process.
Our success as a communicator depends on having a point, getting it across to our listeners, and making it stick. Whether we are responding to a question, providing an update, giving feedback or making a formal presentation, the more clear our point, the more likely our communication will be remembered and acted upon. In this session we will discuss how to avoid the trap of providing “pointless” communication. Then we give you three questions you can ask yourself to identify your point. We’ll provide examples of how you can reword your point so that your listeners get it. Lastly we’ll show you how to support your point with examples so that it’s understandable, memorable and actionable.
