This book can change your life
on March 16, 2013
Are communication issues keeping you from presenting how awesome you are? As a consultant, I occasionally stumble over communication issues - aware that something is off, but not sure what's going on, much less what to do about it.
I'm choosy about quality when I go looking for help dealing with challenges: these ubiquitous lists of "the 10 best techniques for (fill in your challenge)" just don't cut it for me. I want the deeper psychology, stories, strategy, specific exercises for the habits I want to change... all of it.
In "It's The Way You Say It," you'll find out the exact habits of speech and self-comportment that reveal your level of confidence, how to move the location of where you create sound to become more compelling and approachable, what small talk is all about and how to participate (it's so simple once you understand!), and how to end a conversation when it's time. Much more: rambling, mumbling, too loud, to soft, cold and unapproachable, too friendly, annoying sound quality, high voice, even how you look when you talk!
I love this book! It changed my life and could change yours too if you have communication issues that get in your way AND you're willing to put in the work to develop new more effective habits.
