Three forms of communication you must encourage in your business

 

Keeping communication channels in your business healthy is much like keeping your body healthy. Good business communication requires wholesome interaction. All parts of the business must move in unison. The head must be strong enough to lead the arms and legs forward.

The body, your employees, must understand what to do to grow, move forward and develop into a strong and powerful force. The head of the business must give the rest of the company direction, feed them with knowledge and allow them to exercise and flex their muscles to further develop the business.

Why your business needs to embrace a new culture of plain English

 

When communicating with your clients and investors you need to make sure that you deliver clear messages in plain English. This is a massive challenge for companies that provide financial and legal services. Complicated legal jargon, financial data and businesses processes can be confusing for the layman to understand.

That’s why there is an increased drive to simply communications. Introducing plain English as your organisation’s default writing style is pivotal to the success of your company.

Plain English saves you time and money

When you eliminate complex terms and explain your products and services more effectively, you save time and money in having to constantly explain the services and solutions you offer. You also reduce the strain on your customer services centres as fewer clients will be calling in for detailed explanations.

Have you ever received a badly worded email from a client and thought, “How did this person get into business?”

Have you read an advertising brochure and thought, “How do these guys sell anything?”

Sometimes I cringe when I read badly written communications from businesses. Poor sentence construction, bad spelling and ambiguous statements leave potential clients confused and uninspired to support your business.

If this is happening in your company, your reputation is at stake.

You need to be sure that your employees are not sending out poorly worded emails. You might think this is impossible, because you’ve hired the best employees in the market.

But can you be 100% certain that your employees are sending out the best communication on behalf of your business?

The best way to prepare for your next public speaking engagement

Many people find it difficult to speak in front of a crowd. I know how it feels better than most. Sweaty palms and butterflies in your stomach is the least of your worries. What get’s to me the most is the fear that I’m going to forget the content of my presentation.

The worst piece of advice that I’ve ever received is to picture your audience naked. Trying to picture a room full of people with no clothes on only distracts you from what you’re supposed to be doing.

Non-verbal communication – The foundation of exceptional communication

Body language is probably the loudest form of communication we have today. Think about the power of a sigh and how you’ve felt after someone used it to respond to something you sad.

In business, non-verbal communication can give you the upper hand. It can help you spot an opportunity to make contact, retreat or even close a sale. Today, I want to show you how to use three types of non-verbal communication to your advantage in business.
