Power Verbs: The Connection Between Communications and Memorability
With so many wonderful words in the English language, wouldn’t it be more interesting if we used more of the action words? Read your last letter…was it “powerful”? Does it move you? Effective communicators know that using verbs that inspire action can enhance the message you are trying to get across. For example, on a resume, you could say that you “Worked on a project.” Or you could say that you “Designed and spearheaded” it instead. The first gets to the point, but the second grabs your attention with some motion. Using powerful verbs, otherwise known as action verbs, can get you noticed as an effective communicator and someone who has the confidence to recognize their accomplishments. Check out this blog for a list of 500 action verbs.
