Confident Communications Podcast

Your Guide to Communication “Tells”

November 12, 2018

Did you know that you can tell how old someone is just by how they communicate? It’s true, and many marketers and other professionals are savvy at using this information to determine whether you’re a good fit for a product or even a job.

In this first episode of Communicate with Confidence, I’m sharing my background in communication and how I used my status as a Gen-Xer and communications professional to see both sides of the technology spectrum. And I’m also sharing my faux pas in my very first email address as a non-digital native. Here’s a hint: My maiden name is Baker. Molly Baker. (If this doesn’t resonate with you, I can tell you’re likely a Baby Boomer.)

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • The 3 “tells” in your communication style
  • How you can tell the age of others just by how they communicate
  • The one question I ask every audience so I can adjust my messaging accordingly
  • What the fastest growing language of our time is
  • The magic number of social media in your organization

And most importantly, you’ll learn why this all matters. Because it does matter if you want to be a good communicator and remain relevant online and offline.
