Even two months after reading the book, I still find myself thinking about and practicing some of the key concepts. My top 3 "aha's" were:
- Pause: The power of the pause is phenomenal. It helps you avoid filler words (like "um" and "so"), it helps you think on your feet, it gives listeners time to catch up, and so much more.
- Eye connection: Only speak when you see eyes; pause at all other times.
- Open posture: It is the place to begin and always come back to when you are not moving or gesturing. It conveys you are open and ready to have a conversation with them.
After reading the book, I interviewed Stacey for the Engaging Leader podcast. Later, our sound engineer sent me this note about Stacey:
"FAVORITE. GUEST. EVER. I've edited a lot of interviews, and heard of many resources, but she is the only person I've felt compelled to write a thank you note to, follow on twitter and buy the book IMMEDIATELY after finishing the job."
This book is entitled "Yes You Can: Everything You Need from A to Z to Influence Others to Take Action" and it is written by Stacey Hanke and Mary Steinberg. This is not your typical checklist of things you can do in order to persuade other people. This is a personal development workbook with questions for you, the reader, so you can improve your world. It is also a great book filled with lots of tips for public speaking and communicating in general.
I recommend this book for anyone who will be speaking in public with their career or professional aspirations.
