|Recently at a large convention I had an opportunity to view first hand the good and bad in communicating. These tips are great for anyone to use:
- Always remember that you never get a second chance to make a good first impression.
- Every individual is a communicator and has credibility with someone.
- Be genuine and honest. If you don’t know, don’t guess.
- Be enthusiastic. A spark is essential if you want to motivate enthusiasm in others.
- Identify key communicators.
- Use every available means to get people to “witness” quality efforts in action.
- Make communications a part of your objectives each year.
- Don’t “PR people to death” suddenly.
- Above all, listen. Listening is a sign of caring, is basic to building responsiveness, and is the key to confidence.
