Persuasive Communication In Business
When we communicate, we usually want something to happen. We want results. And, when we're conscious of results, we're seeking effective communication. To put it another way, the effectiveness of communication can be measured by the responses it gets. It's not measured by how well we wrote or how eloquently we spoke, although those can help us get the responses we want. Good writing and speaking help us get a response because they help get the message across. So, writing, designing, speaking, and all those other creative activities matter. But, in the end, responses are what count, and effectiveness means getting the responses we want.
