Pa Joof, renowned business strategist and speaker, discusses the importance of developing strong communication skills and saying what you mean in business.
LONDON, UK — June 20, 2016 — Executive coach and business strategist Pa Joof posted a new blog entitled, “Say What You Mean: Developing A Voice for Business.” In the blog, he encourages readers to practice saying what they mean and asking for what they want, but to be mindful of whom they are speaking with, where they are, and how long they have to say what they want to say.
Joof says, “Like great leadership, great communication is a learned skill. Communicating effectively comes more naturally to others, but this doesn’t mean that you can’t learn the skill, how to say what you mean in business. The politics of the business world can often be tricky to navigate, and even more difficult to discern. In conducting business, as much is said as goes unsaid. That is, certain gestures or non-verbal communication are common practices in good ‘business etiquette.’
However, when it comes to speaking, actually saying things in business, it’s important that you develop clear voice. Commanding your verbal communication can help you in a number of ways: negotiating deals, conflict management, asking for a raise or promotion, to name a few. In all of these instances, one principle is key: say what you mean, voice what you want.”
