Communication: Style

May 16, 2008 by

Craig Groeschel has been tackling communications techniques on the Swerve blog lately. So far, he’s looked at The Question and The Visual.

Just to whet your appetite…

Great teachers and communicators know the power of a well-timed question … Asking a direct question and giving your audience time to answer can open the door for a life changing moment …

Most studies show people forget most of what they hear within 72 hours. Their retention rate jumps dramatically when other senses are engaged. When preparing a message, ask how I can show instead of just tell.

Check out the Swerve blog for examples of questions and visuals Craig has used and made a difference with.
