Here's the crux: "Before an idea can flourish, it needs a sound bite to take root."

We teach students how to write research papers, but not how to write headlines. We train entrepreneurs to pitch investors in 60 seconds, when they only have 12. We speak as if we have the audience's full attention, yet we listen while multitasking.

We need to simplify our messages and communicate the same way we listen.

Only once we have the audience's attention, can we get them to lean in close and say those three little words every idea longs to hear: "Tell me more."
