About the Presentation:

Lean Business Communications - Power of Communication

Communication is power. It informs, persuades, activates. 


Tom Stapleton’s Lean Business Communications presentation focuses on how to write or speak on the job with force and impact:


  • Organize your message quickly
  • Target to readers or listeners
  • Streamline message structure
  • Be clear & concise
  • Apply “action-getting” approaches
  • Control idea flow
  • Build in a “response generator”
  • Use Message Mechanics and Content Mapping
  • Structure the message simply
  • Speed up the process
  • Self-check your efforts


With lean business practices gaining increased traction in all industries and public sectors, the need for enhancing communication skills is critical. Applying them ensures putting your best foot forward in any situation,

communicating in a professional, business-like manner.


Be seen in the best possible light by learning and using proven lean business communication techniques.
