Communication Tip #43

Take charge of 2013. Stop relinquishing control to “it.”

Choose active voice over passive.

Not: It has come to my attention…
Instead: I have learned…

Not: It is recommended…
Instead: I recommend…

Not: It has to be settled.
Instead: We need to settle this.

Not: It is a pleasure working with you.
Instead: I enjoy working with you.

Not: It is active voice that makes your ideas clear and strong.
Instead: Be clear and strong; use active voice.
