Synopsis

Senior executives, professionals, politicians, entrepreneurs, and educators are increasingly being evaluated by how well they speak - how credibly, how naturally, and how enthusiastically. They're being judged on their presentation skills. In today's communication-saturated age, the ability to address others effectively has become the essential mark of a leader.

How Leaders Speak covers the seven keys to speaking like a leader: preparation, certainty, passion, engagement, and commitment. It's a personal handbook for planning and conveying presentations that will engage and inspire others, from overcoming nervousness to handling difficult questions from listeners.

  • Test your Technology
  • Have a Checklist of Materials Before You Leave the Office
  • Pre-Presentation Jitters are a Good Thing!
  • Know Your Environment Beforehand (schedule a run through the day before)
  • Eat and Drink Lightly Just Before Your Presentation
