Sound Polished & Professional When You Speak - Ep #186Feb 16, 2023
Subscribe to Heather’s YouTube Channel here.
The way you communicate impacts how others perceive you and your business.
When you sound polished and professional, you’re seen as knowledgeable, trustworthy and confident – which establishes your credibility and helps you attract new clients.
Poor communication skills are COSTLY because when others don’t understand what you do and how you can help them, they certainly won’t buy from you.
That’s why raising your level of awareness and being intentional on how you communicate with your words, with your tone and with your body language is critical– and that’s what this episode is all about.
Today I deep dive on the common mistakes I see so many entrepreneurs making when trying to elevate the level of polish and professionalism with how they speak and more importantly, how to correct it. I also share some power tips + activities you can do (plus a heck of a lot more!) that will help you raise your level of confidence to create a bigger impact on your business.
In this episode, you’ll learn:
- Why communication skills are paramount in your business
- Formality vs Professionalism: two terms that are often used interchangeably
- The Power of Practice
- Understanding polish and professionalism and how it boils down to three communication buckets (and the mistakes that happen when you elevate your polish and professionalism)
- Plus power tips + game-changer activity (you're gonna hate and love me for this!) you can do to become a better communicator
