An episode of The Impact Multiplier CEO Podcast

S5E4: From Ideas to Impact, “Thinking top down to boost your impact when communicating”

We continue season 5 - "From Ideas to Impact" - where Richard Medcalf (Founder of Xquadrant) speaks with Davina Stanley of the Clarity First Program, to explore specific strategies that will help us communicate complex ideas better.

Davina Stanley helps leaders communicate complex ideas. Having started her communication career at McKinsey, she now leads a team of seven structured thinking experts who serve professionals of all kinds who need to communicate with greater impact. Her clients range from smart Australian boutiques to Fortune 500 companies.

Today we talk about how you can bob up and down through your thinking hierarchy to deliver powerful, impactful communication that is solid both at the big picture level and with the detail.

In this conversation, you’ll learn:

  • What top-down thinking is all about
  • How to use it to create perspective and direction
  • How you can range through your thinking hierarchy to deliver powerful communication

"Iterate early to allow your thinking to evolve. Start with a rough skeleton to shape your broad thinking. Don’t be afraid to get it wrong."
