Leadership & Communication tips in this new information age from leadership guru Chris Brady

Leadership expert Chris Brady posted on his blog (chrisbrady.typepad.com) an interesting article on how to communicate in this new information age dominated by  too much of every kind of information: emails, texts, phone messages, instant messages, links, news, announcements, requests, solicitations, spam, social networking updates, and invites to just about anything.

Here are some learning lessons Chris Brady  shared  with us  to better join into the conversation.

1. Keep it short. 

More than ever, being concise is critical.

2. Be interesting.

If you’re going to say something, be sure you have something to say!

3. Be authentic.

The most effective tool for getting noticed is your own, authentic personality. Be who you are. Nobody else can, and that’s probably your biggest advantage.

4. Be creative.

As Maximus said in Gladiator, “I’ll win the crowd. I’ll give them something they’ve never seen before!”

5. Be clear. 

There is nothing worse than a message or communication that doesn’t make any sense.

6. Use a call to action.

What do you want to happen as a result of what you are saying? Make it clear and obvious. “Tell us what you want, what you really really want.”

7. Have fun.

It’s refreshing to deal with people who are comfortable enough in their own skins to allow fun to seep into everything they do.

These are seven lessons for Chris Brady, leadership guru and New York Times best-selling  author. Go out there, and have some fun to communicate your message.

  1. For my point of view…I would add as #4: Beware There’s nothing like speaking to someone where #4-5-6-7 doesn’t apply to! you perhaps them have no interest in your conversation..so prior to utilizing those numbers 4-5-6-7 beware of who you are willing to lead into a deep subject.   That ws a great article Roosevelt Madgie Murray President/Founder Soleil Micro, Corporation 770-885-0558 Mobile  770-739-5740 Fax http://www.soleilmicro.com
