SEVEN KEYS TO CLARITY





1. Know your audience: 


You should understand to whom you are talking to, what they already know, what they need to know, and what they care about. This will rebuild your message to their level of interest, knowledge, and attention.


2. Define your goal: 


What do you want to achieve with your explanation. Do you want to inform, argue, persuade, entertain, or inspire? Do you want to answer a question, solve a problem, or share a story? To have a clear goal will help your explanation direct to the point, avoiding unnecessary details.


3. Structure your explanation: 


You should organize your explanation into a logical and concise message. A good structure will guide your audience through your main points, provide evidence and examples, and create a satisfying conclusion. You can use different formats and techniques, such as storytelling, analogy, comparison, contrast, or cause and effect, to make your explanation more interesting and memorable.


4. Use clear language: 


Choose the right words and phrases to convey your meaning. You should avoid complicated terms and use simple sentences to make your explanation more clear and vivid.


5. Engage your audience: 


Connect with your audience emotionally and intellectually. Use your sense of humor, short stories, anecdotes, questions, and rhetorical devices, to capture their attention and curiosity. You should be honest and be authentic with your information to your audience to build trust and rapport.


6. Use visuals and sounds: 


Enhance your explanation with videos, images, & audio clips as support to your explanation. It is better to illustrate your point and simplify complex concepts inorder to have more clearer and easy to understand messages.


7. Practice and refine: 


The final step is to test and improve your explanation. Make your explanation being discussed with random audiences before you are sharing them to desired audience. It will help you enhance your message the way you find responses during your practice. Talk to a friend or any safe stranger. It will help you review your initial approach and find a better one and appropriate to your audiences.
