Communicate for Impact!

Communicating effectively and with clarity is key for job seekers and professionals in all fields. For job seekers, the ability to connect in an interview and sell themselves confidently makes the difference between a shot at the job and getting the job. Others in the workforce find themselves trying to persuade others of their viewpoints on a regular basis.

Do you come across as unsure? Uncertain? Do you end every sentence with a question mark? If so, you aren’t communicating for impact!

This video (a FedEx commercial) perfectly demonstrates how important it is to communicate with emphasis and clarity. (Hat tip: Speechworks’ blog, Talking Points).

Don’t have your ideas stolen by someone with more authority…Focus on the communication skills that will launch or sink your career.

Stay tuned for more on the art of communication!

    Thanks for sharing the clip which I hadn’t seen. It helps when coaching clients to use popular media as an example. They can laugh at themselves AND learn an important point.

    Jane – UTube is full of funny commercials and clips. I wish I had more time to find good ones to share. It is great to use humor in coaching! Thanks for stopping by and for your comment.
