Be answer first: one of our most recent value

Be answer first: one of our most recent value

One of our most recent (and still extremely important) valuesโ€ฆ Be ๐—”๐—ก๐—ฆ๐—ช๐—˜๐—ฅ-๐—™๐—œ๐—ฅ๐—ฆ๐—ง (thanks Louis Mouquet for bringing this to Stockly).ย 

It means not beating about the bush before saying what you want to say (for my French friends: โ€œ๐™ฃ๐™š ๐™ฅ๐™–๐™จ ๐™ฉ๐™ค๐™ช๐™ง๐™ฃ๐™š๐™ง ๐™–๐™ช๐™ฉ๐™ค๐™ช๐™ง ๐™™๐™ช ๐™ฅ๐™ค๐™ฉโ€).

๐Ÿ‘‰ Always start with the answer rather than the full explanation. Donโ€™t extensively explain your reasoning, your research, the work done and the roadblocks overcome. The audience or the person discussing with you will ask questions and deep-dive if needed. This way you will save a loooot of time for both your audience and yourself.

โœ… ๐—”๐—ป๐˜€๐˜„๐—ฒ๐—ฟ-๐—ณ๐—ถ๐—ฟ๐˜€๐˜: We should partner with brand-A and brand-B. Do you want me to explain specific points in the analysis that led me to this conclusion?

โŒ ๐—ก๐—ผ๐˜ ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐˜€๐˜„๐—ฒ๐—ฟ-๐—ณ๐—ถ๐—ฟ๐˜€๐˜: I started to look for articles on the internet about good cosmetic brands. Then I started to search for retailers and brands that were selling a lot in France. I found the ranking on a website. The problem is that it was not only online sales so I wanted to cross-check with another website. It was hard to find the information because I tried on Google โ€œonline sales in cosmeticsโ€ instead of โ€œecommerce cosmetics top brands revenues in Europeโ€ but then I thoughtโ€ฆโ€ฆโ€ฆโ€ฆ. โœ‹โœ‹โœ‹๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Just say the conclusion, people won't hesitate to ask for details ๐Ÿค”
