Simple language = Clear thoughts

Stories do not always need long introductions.
Ideas do not always require adverbs and adjectives to get buy-in.
Longer explanations should come after the listener has requested more detail.

While studies show that listening skills are some of the most valued in business, many do not make it easy on the listener.

Can you state your main message - the one thing your audience must know - in one sentence?

It takes practice.
It is similar to the thesis statement we hated writing in grade 10 English class.
It is the sizzle - the heart - of capturing attention in a business world.

Say your idea/message simply to show your thinking as crisp and precise.
