Quick thought for the day, and a theme we discuss all the time here at The Latimer Group.
Wow, is it ever noisy out there! And the best way to get the attention of your colleagues, the best way to be heard, is not to yell louder. The answer is not to combat noise with more noise.
The answer is to make your words count. Make them valuable. Make them interesting. Figure out what matters most, and talk about that. Figure out what your audience cares about, or doesn’t care about, and make your message valuable.
Less is more.
Know your audience.
Say as much as possible, with as few words as possible.
Eventually people will start to realize “hey, when she/he speaks, it is always valuable.” And they will listen to you.
Have a great day.
