"When people get too busy, it changes how they communicate." Jill Konrath.
Ever since I heard Jill say that, I've been noticing how true it is, and collecting ideas about how to SpeakStrong in a beyond-busy world. I've observed how people talk with one foot out the door, answer emails without having read them (if they answer at all), and listen while texting their friends. I've noticed people ask questions I answered already, answer questions I didn't ask, and make assumptions that don't apply. But mostly, I've noticed how much time is wasted correcting errors that would not have happened if people knew how to communicate in a beyond-busy world.
It takes a lot more time to correct errors due to hasty communication than it does to say it right the first time.
Busy-ness changes the rules and requirements of successful business communication.

I found that no matter how useful information about how to succeed in the world is, there is always something that isn't a fit and either turns me off too much to try or overwhelms me when I do. This is my life. Your life is your own. We are unique. Speaking Strong is about saying what you mean and meaning what you say without being mean when you say it. That practice and the philosophy behind it leads to a different, more essential way of living. That includes career planning and goal setting. This webinar will help you find success principles you can live by.

Personal message from Meryl Runion:
Every administrative assistant and executive administrator knows that the real challenge is getting things done when you're not in charge. The truth is, those who regularly get results without formal power have discovered the secrets of true power.
This free webinar will detail the top ten PowerPhrases for admins. You'll walk away, not only with words and phrases you can use right away, but a new way of looking at what assertive communication is for the professional support person.
