For as long as I’ve been in management and consulting the absolute Number 1 personal and company problem I’ve encountered in almost every company has been Communications!
And it’s so simple and tangible and yet so very hard to resolve….
And, as always, the answer is not really that hard – you just need to know where to look for it.
Because if we focus on “fixing” communication, it’s not going to work – what we really need to focus on is what comes before and after communication.
So let me ask you two vital questions:
- What is it that is not happening, that you’re not feeling or experiencing when you’re communicating?
- And, secondly, what is it that you need to do, change or be in order to get there?
So let’s say you want to be a powerful, credible communicator so that people act on your advice and instructions and, ideally, without the need to repeat yourself, cajole or threaten – then you should focus on building your credibility as a speaker and communicator.
