"Talking is the most powerful and productive form of communication in business, but for many it’s also the most challenging, because they haven’t learned to be good speakers."

April, 2015: "Talking is the most powerful and productive form of communication in business, but for many it’s also the most challenging, because they haven’t learned to be good speakers," states Bob Lipp, creator of Communication Masters (http://www.CommunicationMasters.net).
The former CEO and university-level communications teacher is concerned that with all the new ways to communicate including texting, emailing, and social media posts, talking skills are continuing to erode.
“It’s alarming,” states Lipp, adding, “While good speaking (and writing) skills are critical to improve business productivity, they also play an essential role in everyday life.”
He agrees that the new forms of communication technology are very important and necessary, but that the reliance on what are sometimes cryptic notes and acronyms underscores just how uncomfortable most business people are with the spoken word.
In the video on his website, Lipp offers the secret to effective communication as “two people coming from the same starting point, trying to resolve something.”
Lipp states that increasingly words are used to express anger and hostility, and are often used to argue a point of view, rather than to move forward with a mutually agreeable conclusion.
He is also concerned that poor speaking skills are contributing to misunderstandings, and in business that can mean the difference between working together as a team, or working apart.
“Some people think that just because they are talking, they are communicating, and they are wrong, adds Lipp. “Without a shared starting point and goal to resolve a situation (even if it’s to agree not to agree and to find another solution), productive communication cannot take place.”
Communication Masters offers individual and group programs, designed to make business people more effective speakers (and writers) overall.
