Tommy Talks

Cheryl Wakslak
I or We and Why It Matters
“Communicators can frame what they say using “I” or “we” language – what influences which they choose and what implications does this have? In this Tommy Talk, Prof. Wakslak describes recent research that links choices of I’s and we’s to the concreteness or abstractness of a message, and shows how awareness of this connection can lead to more effective messaging.”
