14 Jul How to be memorable
“I have a dream…”
“Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.”
“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
The speakers of each of those sentences are long dead, yet their words live on and each new generation finds inspiration in them. So what is the secret to saying truly memorable things?
1) Find universal truths and apply them to your field of expertise
2) Be observant and draw conclusion based on what you see
3) Use simple words and short sentences to convey your message
Leaders need to be memorable and to motivate their teams. While most of us will never have the eloquence of Martin Luther King Jr, JFK, or Eleanor Roosevelt, we can all strive to be clearer in what we say and dedicate more time to thinking before we speak.
