public speaking is the most valuable skill you can learn
In 2009, business tycoon and investor Warren Buffet told a group of business students at Columbia University that they could improve their value by 50 percent by bolstering their communication skills, namely, public speaking.
And it's no mystery why. Mastering the art of public speaking is vital for companies and individuals alike.
Ineffective communication is costly to an organization. When your workforce doesn't communicate effectively, it negatively affects the bottom line in a number of alarming ways:
Unclear, uninspiring communication creates roadblocks in generating new business and servicing current customers well.
Key leaders in external facing roles that struggle to communicate effectively call the company's reputation into question, making it difficult to attract top talent.
Poor communication creates inefficiencies and bottlenecks, requiring workers to spend time clarifying previous communication rather than accomplishing revenue-generating activities.
If you've assumed that your workforce's communications skills will improve naturally over time, unfortunately, they won't.
In order to see lasting and immediate improvement, your staff needs professional feedback, practical strategies they can implement long-term and the opportunity to learn in a guided setting.
