3 Techniques to Be More Concise

Clear and concise language makes you sound confident. If this is a challenge for you, try these techniques:

  • Before you speak at a meeting or during a meaningful conversation, say either aloud or in your head, "If I had to boil it down . . ." This will train you to make your following statement concise.

  • Ensure listeners catch your big-picture idea during conversations, meetings, and presentations by simplifying your key idea into one crisp sentence or headline. Prepare this headline beforehand.

  • Break your main idea down into about three points or buckets. For long conversations and updates, say "first," "second," and "third" to make your transitions stand out.
