These are 3 things that I really hope you’ll remember:

1️⃣ The Power of 3’s

  • 3 things are generally easy to remember. (Beyond 3? I need to take notes!)
  • 3 is not too much, but it’s enough to be substantive
  • Have you ever noticed that a stool with three legs is always in perfect balance

2️⃣ Keep it Short

  • This means being brief and precise in both written and verbal communication.
  • Keeping it short helps you to focus and organize your thoughts.
  • Keeping it short implicitly communicates that you respect your audience’s time.

3️⃣ Frameworks


Top 3 Communication Goals

Here are my 3 communication goals for 2022. These goals are a result of insights that I’ve learned over the past year, from my podcast guests, from the reading and research that I’ve done, and from your feedback!

1️⃣ Listen More (and talk less)

  • Listening is truly the number one communication superpower.
  • The more we listen, the more we can learn.

2️⃣ Be Mindful

  • In other words, be focused and purposeful
  • Ask yourself: WHAT I am doing and WHY I am doing it?

3️⃣ Lean Into My Superpower

  • Identify something you’re really good at and think about it whenever you need a confidence boost.
  • This is something I recommend for my coaching clients, and it’s my goal to take my own advice!
