Had a blast commentating on WCCO Radio Sports Sunday recently. Here’s part of the show with Host Eric Nelson.

Happy to help a Twin Cities man get ready for a big set of interviews. KARE-TV in Minneapolis will feature Reporter Jordana Green’s Story about Steve and his Dream Team. We helped him with interview prep on many levels. Jordana called on me for communication tips: body language, eye contact, words used and not used. Hope Steve’s story inspires you to communicate your best in all arenas.
Check out the KARE 11 Extra Monday, May 16, in the 10pm (Central Time) news.
I wrote on my Facebook Wall about how frustrating it can be to get a voice mail message I can’t understand. Little did I know this would set the comments flying. I started by suggesting people repeat their number twice. Here are some other valuable pieces of advice from a few of my FB Friends who also happen to be in a position to hire you or get you media attention.
Business owner Jennifer Brigham suggests you say the number at the beginning of your message, shortly describe your content, and then say the number again at the end. Christy Morrell-Stinson recommends you let your person know you’ll also text your name and number after you finish leaving them the voice message. Melissa Gilman of Savvy.mn Magazine wants you to tell her why you are calling. And if you don’t, she may never return the call. Scott Weaver just wants his callers to stop speed talking.
All great advice. Remember, your outgoing voice mail message as well as the voice messages you leave others are part of your communication arsenal. If your targets can’t understand you, they can’t call you back. And likely you won’t make that sale, get that job, land that huge account. Happy dialing.
Look forward to heading back to one of the best places in the USA–Nashville, Tennessee. On Monday, July 26, I’ll be back on the station where I was once the Consumer Investigative Reporter.
Tune in around 11:07am on July 26 to WTVF-TV Newschannel 5. We’ll talk about Communicate That! and how to use powerful communication skills to get a job or advance in yours. This will be my first time back for a visit in six years and my first time back on the air there in eight years.
Thanks Esme Murphy for a fun interview on WCCO Radio Saturday night. Great to talk about the book, Communicate That! Especially good to discuss how powerful communication can help people at work and in life.
Send me your communication questions anytime. I’m happy to help.
