Getting people to listen

Have you ever had something important to say and before you get to the main point people switch off?
What about people being confused by what you say?
Do you take a long time to get to the point?

I can be a bit of a talker, however at times I have to deliver an important message. I have four quick points on how I deliver important messages. I have listed these in the article “Getting People to Listen by Saying Less”.

  1. This is extremely difficult. I find that I have good days and bad days: days on which I can speak clearly and briefly and well, and days when I can’t seem to use words effectively.

  2. Your post reminds me of an episode of The Golden Girls (old US sit-com). One of the ladies is rambling on and on. Her friend teases her, “Are you going to keep circling the airport or land that plane already!?”

  3. Hi and thank you for stopping by my blog! I am sometimes wordy myself. I need to work on that. Thanks for the tips!

  4. listening takes practice. it is much easier to talk, but so rude and unfeeling to not listen

  5. This is so true! I have a tendency to say a lot sometimes, go off on tangents and steer away from the topic. Some people are really good at telling jokes for example. It takes skill to delivery the punchline in a way that the audience is still interested to hear it before diverting attention to something else. Thanks for link to the article, I’ll definitely check it out.

  6. My wife is a talker, it drives me nuts waiting for her to get to the meat and potatoes. Good point.

  7. Every time I talk with my wife. I tend to talk too quickly and leave out details while she rambles on adding too many details. It’s amazing we still manage to understand each other most days.

  8. interesting read. definitely bookmarked in my time of need.
