Why America Is Obsessed With Debates

EAST HAMPTON, NY--(Marketwired - April 27, 2016) - Communispond Inc., the leader in professional skills training, understands that America is obsessed with debates, they are too. But what makes debates so popular? Part of it has to do with the fact that they are short and to the point. Communispond published a blog post called "When to Be Brief: The Other Gettysburg Address" on the topic of being brief. Most people don't know that there were actually two Gettysburg Addresses -- one short and one long. Guess which one is the one we all know?

Here is an excerpt from Communispond's blog post that speaks to when and why you should consider being brief:

"What can we learn by comparing the two Gettysburg Addresses? There are principled reasons for being brief when giving a speech: respecting the time of your listeners and improving the efficiency of communication are two that come to mind. But the real impact of brevity is that it clarifies and dramatizes what you are trying to say. And, as the case of Lincoln's Gettysburg Address shows, it makes you stand out next to those who haven't been brief."
