Matt Abrahams of BoldEcho on Becoming Effective Communicators
Podcast with Matt Abrahams by Shane Hastie on Jul 02, 2018
In this podcast Shane Hastie, Lead Editor for Culture & Methods, spoke with Matt Abrahams of BoldEcho and Stanford Graduate School of Business on becoming effective communicators, especially around speaking in public.
- Everyone has a story to tell
- Make sure you understand who you are speaking to and what it is that you can do to help them
- It’s important to structuring your message in such a way as to make it easy for your audience to understand
- All communication should have a goal which has three parts – information, emotion and action (what, so what, now what)
- Overcoming imposter syndrome – most audiences are there to learn, they want you to be successful
- It takes bravery to admit that we’re not great communicators and start on a path of learning to improve
