SpeakerByte #55: Intention Trumps Precision

speakerbytesFF

After investing the time and energy to clarify and organize your message, it can be tempting to be precise in what you say – wanting to use the exact words or phrases you agonized over when crafting your message.  That level of precision creates a lot of pressure and in fact may limit your ability to connect with your audience.

Rather than focus on the precision of your message, focus on the intention of your message. You will still communicate the same content, but with more passion, credibility and authenticity.

    Stephanie – great advice, as always! This reminds me of another great piece of wisdom you shared with me years ago that I have never forgotten – it’s about connection, not perfection.
