Effective leaders are powerful speakers. If you are not paying any attention to your communication style, you are doing a disservice to your career. Can you express yourself in the fewest possible words?
Pay attention to your speech
People will find it easy to ignore you if you are incoherent, jejune and unable to state your position clearly. Therefore, as a manager set a goal for becoming an effective communicator when you talk. Even if you’re an introvert, you have to learn to speak in bold unambiguous terms. Don’t drop faint hints if the situation warrants you to speak up clearly. If your speech is simple and direct, people are more likely to follow you.
Here is one way to speak with power
If you want to get things done, the finest eloquence is to use action verbs in your speech. Examples of action verbs – analyze, arrange, assign, evaluate, illustrate, negotiate… and the list goes on. Take a pause before and after using an action word. Since action brings out the meaning, do not rush out while using action verbs.
