Learn techniques for presenting yourself with power and persuasion.
The moment you answer the phone, engage in a conversation, or walk into a room with at least one other person there, you become a presenter. Perhaps you’re interviewing or being interviewed for a job, delivering a report at a meeting, making a sale, or giving a speech. As a presenter, you’re in a position to persuade.
A key aspect of being a great communicator is the ability to influence someone – to bring them around to your point of view. The more you know about how to influence them, the more of a force you can be in their lives – if only for a moment.
The content of your message is important, of course, but effective communication has more to do with HOW you say something rather than WHAT you say.
It helps to have a good knowledge of communication styles. Know how others will see you. Know how to ‘read’ people’s behaviour. The more you know about your audience, the more persuasive you can be.
Suzanne Sherkin’s approach to communicating with power and persuasion also includes teaching techniques to help you become more aware of using your body gestures and developing your vocal variety for impact.
