I’ve written about the oft under-emphasized practice of assessing the characteristics of an effective message that stands out and increases the likelihood that what’s being said is also being heard. It’s a subject Brandon and I will cover with attendees of a workshop we’re hosting in April. For the rest of you communication ninjas, I slapped together this “talkie” that gives you a glimpse into my personal process for not just assessing an existing message but for developing one from scratch.
