EPISODE 18 SUMMARY & HIGHLIGHTS: 

Why should your communication be guided? 4:21

Guidance is important to ensure you know where you are leading the communication to. If you don't know where you're going, there's a good chance that not only will you get off track, but you'll lead others off track.

How do you increase the guidance outcome?

8:18

Write it before you say it. Write your expectations from the speaking clearly in advance.

10:41
Stay on point and on purpose.

12:35

Follow up by whatever means you can. Follow up with paper, email, or clearly saying what you just said, so people could clearly understand what you delivered. Because something may have piqued their minds then.

KEY QUOTES:

5:58-6:08

“Words are like the rudder that can guide and direct the entire ship Diva, a massive, massive boat, guided by a tiny, tiny rudder.”

14:16-14:25

“Your communication directs people, there's a good chance that if you're not doing this on purpose, you are leading them down a path that you didn't intend to go.”

RESOURCES MENTIONED ON THE PODCAST:

● Tom Brady (Tampa Bay Quarterback) as a good communicator
