    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.

    Key Takeaways

    • 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
