EPISODE 16 SUMMARY & HIGHLIGHTS: 

Why is clarity important for achieving excellence in speaking?

3:54

Something which is unclear to you as you speak, has to be equally confusing for the listener. It is important to know well what you aim to convey.

What are the benefits of having clarity in speaking?

4:26

The first benefit of having clarity in speech is understanding what the topic is and what it is that you have to deliver to the listener.

6:11

Also, clarity illuminates and helps people understand the topic you're talking about better and people go, “Oh, Okay, I got that!”.

 How do you bring about greater clarity in your communication? 

10:01

  1. Understand what you want to say.

11:36

  1.  Break it down so that it is simple enough for you to deliver.

13:33

  1. Plan your conclusion. Know how you would want to end your speaking and what you should do for that to happen.

 

KEY QUOTES:

6:00-6:07

“When you're not clear, it obscures the truth. But if you are clear, it illuminates the truth.”

7:56-8:07

“So many times, miscommunication and conflict comes when people are arguing about things that the other person actually didn't say, this is actually a tactic in debate.”

 

RESOURCES MENTIONED ON THE PODCAST:

●      The Ideal Team Player by Patrick Lencioni

●      Upcoming Book: C Suite Advantage by Mike Acker
