Too many organizations believe their mission statement is their message. Understanding the difference between mission and message can help you craft effective communication that is inspiring, memorable, and magnetic. This post offers some clarification.
How do we keep pace between what we are offering and rapid movements in our market? How do we demonstrate our value in a shifting normal? The answer is communication built on listening.
In business, we celebrate scale. There are greater efficiencies, access more to more resources and greater impact. But is bigger really better? Just because a business is small doesn’t mean it thinks small or doesn’t make an impact. Ignore small business at your peril.
Abstraction is the enemy of effective communication. To break through the noise and get people to pay attention, paint pictures with words with metaphors and analogies. And your message is more likely to stick.
