LeaderSHIFT 5 – The Power of Language

WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU?

The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.
George Bernard Shaw

Business is about communication. If your team doesn’t communicate effectively, you can be sure that there is a significant negative bottom line impact. This is true whether the team does sales, service, marketing, operations or finance and accounting.

The ability to communicate effectively with others is a skill. A necessary skill. And a powerful skill when used deliberately. And a skill that most businesses assume people can build simply by telling employees to communicate better. But like many skills, communication is a skill that needs to be learned, practiced and mastered.

Language is the basis of all communication. The words that we use and the way that we use them are extremely influential in getting results. Isn’t it time to discover how to be meticulous with your language so that you can communicate any message to any person and have it be accepted. Learn to use language to get powerful results.
