How to Add Color to Your Communication

Business people have the habit of saying, “I don’t like talking about myself,” which just misplaced modesty. We could use a little of you in your communication.

Here’s how to give your communications some color

  • The last time you laughed so hard you cried
  • Something your granddad used to say
  • A scene in nature that took your breath away—the colors
  • One of the best days in your career
  • Some of the best advice you ever received
  • A time when someone told you a difficult truth
  • One of the worst days in your career
  • The last time someone helped you achieve an important goal

“Free yourself from clouds of automatic verbiage, from uninteresting-ness. When you get the hang of it, you will work at expressing yourself freely, pulled toward it in fascination.” – Brenda Ueland
