“Talk Less, Say More” per author and speaker Connie Dieken…

A Review and Open Discussion on the Book:

Talk Less Say More: 3 Habits to Influence Others and Make Things Happen

The book written by Connie Dieken

Discussion on Tuesday 11.09.10 at 7 P.M.


Greetings All,

It may be a short and concise discussion this Tuesday evening, but a good one. Have you ever had a conversation and then, shortly after, thought of all the things that you should have or shouldn’t have said? Do you just have a knowing feeling that you could have communicated better at times? Do you know what you want to say but feel that others are not really interested in listening? Talk Less, Say More offers some concrete solutions to the increasingly shorted attention spans that we are confronted with today. Connie Dieken comes from a broadcasting background where time has always been dealt carefully in seconds and minutes. This book does lead to clarity. Please join us.

We’ll “Talk Less” and “Say More” about:

  • Garnering influence and power with fewer words
  • To have or have not an “elevator speech” or “power message”
  • Communicating in memes vs. lengthy descriptions
  • Strategies for dealing with the momentarily distracted and the pathologically attention-deficit
  • Defining what the prime desired and positive action
  • Goldilocks knew something about communication
  • Are we guilty of “Communiclutter?”
  • Signs and dangers of being a weak conveyor
  • Dangers of playing digital dodge ball
  • Subtle and not-so-subtle differences between business and social situations
  • Alleviate frustration and anger of not getting fully heard
  • Better communication styles as the foundation for healthier relationships
  • Benefits for business leaders, emerging leaders, sales persons, and job seekers.
  • Muscling in on speedier persuasion modes.
  • Much more, but I wanted to be brief…


1 Connect, 2 Convey, 3 Convince!


“Connie Dieken’s three-step strategy is a smart, practical guide for business leaders and others who want to create a high-performance culture. It’s an important, powerful book on how to master communication in the 21st Century.”   Tom Swidarski President & CEO Diebold
