Many companies that have a formal presence have created formal communication styles, formalizing communications in a way that makes it difficult for employees to be direct and direct with everyone else. Often the only way to get a conversation going is to be very formal and very detailed. This makes it very difficult for employees to be able to discuss topics that are important to them without sounding like they’re being an idiot. With this ebook, you will learn exactly how to have a professional communication style that is second to none.
I use to work for a really successful law firm that didn’t exactly put a high priority on communication. So much so that if something happened that affected one of its clients, the communication at work would be non-existent. But now I work for a major law firm, and I get to see and hear all kinds of communication go on. You’ll find out that having a good formal communication style makes a big difference in other areas as well, especially in the workplace.
That being said, business communication is not an easy skill to master. It takes a lot of thought, practice, and practice. Most of you reading this book don’t have a ton of formal communication skills either, but I encourage you to think about all of the ways you can use your communication to impress others.
Well, that’s one of the reasons why I created my business communication practice guide. It’s one of the most important things I’ve ever written: a guide to getting better at your professional communication.
I will give you one small example of how I use my communication skills: I have been using the business communication practice guide to help me learn how to work to a schedule. I want to get better at time management, and this guide has helped me develop that skill. I know that many people are interested in learning how to incorporate scheduling in their business communication.
If you have the ability to work to a schedule, and you want to learn how to do it, then a schedule is the way to go. But it takes practice and consistency. So, I will give you another small example of how I use my communication skills and how I use the business communication practice guide to help me work to a schedule. I want to get better at time management, and this guide has helped me develop that skill.
So, in the business communication practice guide, we learn how to use the format of a to-do list. This is one of the most important tools a person has in their business communication arsenal. This is the thing you put on your to-do list and every time you get a task, you add it to your to-do list. You don’t just work on it, you add it to your list.
To be effective in your communication, it’s important to know how to prioritize that list of to-dos. This is a big part of being a professional. There are a lot of tasks that you have to do that you usually just put on your calendar and never get around to. You want to make sure you are on top of that list so that you can get that priority.
So lets say that you have a task that you haven’t been able to touch for a while, so you put it on your list and then you get a new project, let’s say you have to fix that broken water heater in your basement. You are pretty sure that you will be able to do that task.
