In all of our workshops, we always ask participants about their goals for the session. And we get lots of great answers to that query, often with some ambitious and lofty goals like “I need to win this big piece of business“… and just as often, we hear seemingly more modest goals like “I just want to be less nervous.”
But regardless of the “altitude” of the goal, we always encourage the people we work with to think about what great communication skills can do for them, overall. When we have great communication skills we can better articulate our value, our product or service, ourselves… And when we have great communication skills, we not only are able to advocate for the things we believe in. But we also are able to get to the point, speak clearly, not waste time… and such skills become part of our brand.
So imagine this… Imagine if you were known as someone who always gets to the point… Who doesn’t waste time… Who makes complicated things easier to understand… Who can articulate the vision in easy-to-grasp ways. Imagine how powerful that would be for you.
Your communication skills should allow you to be heard, and to advocate for the things you believe in. And your communication skills can and should become part of your overall brand in the workplace.
Now THAT is a great goal.
Good luck, and have a great day.
