Train Your Brain to Think More Clearly

Neuroscience says that honing how you speak and write also hones the way you think.

When you write and speak more clearly, you increase your positive influence on your team. Due to their mirror neurons, they’ll begin to imitate your clarity in their own thought processes. Clarity is contagious.

Conversely, if you habitually use fuzzy, ill-defined words crammed into long and convoluted sentences, you’re training your brain–and the brains of your team members–to think less clearly. Confusion is also contagious.

Here are easy ways to hone your word skills:

  1. Mentally edit out fuzzy buzzwords
  2. Simplify your business writing
  3. Play the “one syllable” game
