How come we never talk about writing when we talk about effective communication?
Leaders need to improve their own communication and also teach soft skills constantly.
So let's look at a common challenge:
"A colleague needs to improve their communication at work."
The way to help them practice:
"Encourage them to share knowledge because their expertise is a safe space."
Public speaking is terrifying, even in front of a small audience.
People (and don't we all) tend to procrastinate on one presentation for months.
Their progress is slower than expected.
In our team, we discovered that when we ask colleagues to share knowledge by writing articles, it usually takes half the time to start!
On top of it, writing does the same job as presenting - it helps practicing better expressing ourselves.
