Soundwaves: Brevity and the War on Detail


We talk and write often about our 5 “ingredients” in the recipe for great communication: Clarity, Brevity, Context, Impact, and Value. We also have written a few articles and blog posts about the War on Detail — the notion that details in business and communication DO matter greatly, but we should choose carefully which details we give based on our situation at the time.

In our latest edition of Soundwaves, Dean looks a little more closely at Brevity, and how you can make it one of the most valuable “ingredients” in your communication.
