Welcome to the Effective Communications blog. Communicating effectively is all about getting your message across whether you’re delivering that message on the phone, meeting with a client or a prospect, writing an email, drafting an employee policy, text messaging over lunch, speaking at your kid’s school career day, negotiating with a supplier, or expanding your business network at a cocktail party.Despite all the options, the medium isn’t the message. So what is? That’s up to you, but once you’ve decided on the message, delivery is crucial. Your delivery determines not only whether you get your message across, but also reflects on you and your organization. Professional, effective organizations and businesspeople know how to communicate effectively. It doesn’t happen by accident.
The Effective Communications blog is here to help. It will provide tips, tricks, and tools to help deliver your message and look good doing it. And hopefully this blog won’t be a one-way street. Instead, let’s have a running conversation about how to deliver the message you want, when you want to, and connect with your audience. So keep it lively, tell me what you think; I welcome your comments, diatribes, and invective.
I hope you’ll stick around, join the conversation, and start communicating…effectively.
