You may be wondering why I use the metaphor of a 3-legged stool to describe effective communication.

That’s because there are three crucial elements that must be present in order for your presentations and other forms of communication to attract the people in your ideal audience so that they can consider, and then purchase, your product or service.

The 3-legged stool works because it’s very clear that missing even one leg will cause a stool to fall over. Missing one element in your presentations can cause your message to fall flat as well.

Thus, when you are offering a presentation or sharing a message with people, all three legs of that communication must be included for your message to land in the positive manner you intend.

Communication as a 3-legged stool is exactly the topic I discussed with Lorraine LaPointe in a recent podcast in her series.

Just in case you’ve never heard of those 3 leges, or you missed the chance to tune into the live presentation, I am sharing it with you now.

It is always a pleasure to participate in a podcast that is produced at an incredibly professional level.

So while you’re listening to my conversation with Lorraine LaPointe, I invite you to check out all the not so little touches that add pizzazz to the event.

Here are a couple of questions for you to consider as you listen to the podcast:

  1. Which of the 3 legs of the 3-legged stool are you most comfortable with?
  2. Which of the 3 legs of the 3-legged stool could use a little work?

A good starting point for shining up those legs of your communication stool that are a little dull, check out the programs on the Online Training page and the mentoring available on the Coaching Programs page.
