When communicating with your staff, do you get to the point or ramble on?

King Solomon instructed, "A truly wise person uses few words" (Proverbs 17:27 NLT).

Most of us have a limited attention span when listening to others. Effective leaders get to the point and stay there with business communication. Organize your thoughts and be concise. Amplify only when necessary and stay on message. Don't let your key message become lost in a myriad of words. As you are clear and concise with your staff, your communication will improve, and you will become a more effective leader.

In the Word

King Solomon instructed, "A truly wise person uses few words" (Proverbs 17:27 NLT).
