Remove Fear by Making it Clear

When you speak so others can understand you, your chances of influencing someone else increases dramatically. This is the foundation of influential communication skills.

Today, social psychologists and marketing gurus will tell you the secrets of human behavior to get others to say yes. But in a business setting, there is a step you must take before you can use any principle or tactic to persuade another person.

It’s the ability to explain things clearly.

People are scared of things they cannot understand. They feel skeptical of what they can’t grasp and sometimes they will even think the unclear is dangerous.

Explaining your ideas or suggestion clearly is more influential than anything else.  Without it, all principles and influence tactics will fail.

At Clear Points Messaging, we have tools and training that give you the ability to speak clearly, write clearly and persuade others.
