Ten Tips for Achieving Championship Communication 

by Bill Lampton, PhD.

Several years ago, I made a list of ten tips that will help people achieve Championship Communication.  I haven't changed a single item, because I consider every suggestion both practical and valuable.  Here they are:

  •  Listen intently.  People will call you a great conversationalist.

  • Write simply.  Big words impress us only in the dictionary.

  • Tell stories.  We love once upon a time all our lives.

  • Ask questions.  Questions show youre vitally interested in others.

  • Record yourself.  Camcorder checkups bring amazing changes.

  • Send notes.  Handwritten notes make you unforgettable.

  • Remember names.  Recalling a name opens a heart and mind.

  • Stay brief.  Short talks establish long friendships.

  • Be open.  I may be mistaken removes barriers.

  • Introduce yourself.  Eagerness to communicate will captivate.
