Great advice on communicating for impact

Joe McCormack’s Just Saying podcast takes a page from his book Brief. He provides quick but rich pointers in how to communicate in a focused way to get the desired results. I learn every time I listen.

Great Tool!

Joe’s podcast is a great tool to supplement his course material or listening to it without taking the course. His podcasts are 15 minutes or less and are easily digestible during commutes.

Definitely recommend!

Be better, Be brief

Short episodes with great tips and reminders. Pick up his book and/or attend his workshop to create a concise elevator pitch and narrative maps for meetings/presentations
