Communication Tips for Leadership – 12 of 15

Communication Tips  (SERIES)

Tip #12.  Behind Door #3

Our audience can lose faith in us if we demonstrate an underdeveloped thought or behavior.  One way we can avoid this situation is by eliminating pre-determined solutions from our messages.  See below for some options.

Best Practices:

  • Removing the “this OR that” wording — it creates two options when there could be many more
  • Rewording “THE way to achieve that is…” to state “ONE way to achieve that is…”
  • Using the word “options”

We hope this helps make your messages more open and appealing to your audiences.  Good luck!
