Some hour-long talks feel like 10 minutes. Far too many feel like 10 hours.
Make every minute and every word count. Smart people talking to busy people forget to be brief thanks to the seven deadly sins of cowardice, confidence, callousness, comfort, confusion, complication and carelessness. One way to avoid sinning is to start with an outline. And do your homework.
McCormack shows how to be brief in key conversations that are critical to your professional well-being, from presenting to senior executives and closing sales with clients to delivering good and bad news and using social media. So the next time you go up to the podium or step into the executive boardroom, stop dishing out the verbal equivalent of a seven course meal.
