7 Cs of Communication
The seven C’s of communication are a list of seven principles that you can use for all your communication to help you communicate effectively. This seven-point checklist is a great tool for delivering engaging and effective messages.
Make the goal of your message clear to your recipient. Ask yourself what the purpose of your communication is.
Your message should also be brief and to the point. Why communicate your message in six sentences when you can do it in three?
Ensure your message has important details and facts, but that nothing deters the focus of your message.
Make sure what you're writing or saying is accurate. Bad information doesn't help anybody. Also make sure that your message is typo free.
Does your message make sense? Check to see that all of your points are relevant and that everything is consistent with the tone and flow or your text.
Your message is complete when all relevant information is included in an understandable manner and there is a clear "call to action". Does your audience know what you want them to do?
Ensure that your communication is friendly, open, and honest, regardless of what the message is about. Be empathetic and avoid passive-aggressive tones.
