Tips

Following tips on how to communicate or write well can make it mechanical and boring. For example, "When you're speaking to a crowd, vary the pace and the tone of your speech." It is correct but doesn't necessarily make sense in terms of how you're relating to the people you're talking with.

Say it three times

If you have to talk about a difficult idea, try to say it three times throughout the talk.

  • The second time it sounds familiar.
  • The third time you get it.
