Coaching Advice: The 5 Most Important Communication Lessons from The Latimer Group

A short post today, with some simple, but very powerful lessons to help you become a more effective communicator. These are the concepts we’re thinking about most often in our coaching and client workshops. Click the links throughout to learn more.

  1. Think about the outcomes you are trying to achieve. Communicate with purpose.  
  2. Avoid the “one size fits all” approach to your communication. Know your audience and plan accordingly.  
  3. Don’t allow the “I am too busy” excuse to prevent preparation. Lack of preparation is very expensive.  
  4. Anything worth doing requires repetition to build up muscle memory. Practice.  
  5. Credibility matters. When you have it, nothing else matters. When you don’t have it, nothing else matters.

Have a great day.
