What Does It Take To Be Heard?

Whether it’s speaking to a crowd, in a virtual meeting, or in a phone conversation, driving our message home gets us where we need to go. That’s how we achieve our professional goals. Like closing a sale, earning a promotion, or launching a whole new career.

That’s not always an easy thing to do. But it can be.

Connecting with Others is a Skill, as Well as a Talent

Let me share a secret with you.

The ability to make a strong first impression, influence and persuade people, spread ideas. To get seen, get heard, and get raises … most people aren’t born with that.

Even the smartest, most talented people in the world can have trouble saying the right words in the right way to make the impact they need to make.

That’s the good news.

Because it means these skills can be developed.

This is what I offer. Simple, concrete steps to strengthen critical communication skills. And I do it in a way that’s fun and that sticks.

Do you represent a business organization, association, or women’s group? You can help your people connect with each other and with the world more powerfully and persuasively … and have fun doing it.

Do you need more personal attention than a speaking event offers? For smaller groups or even one-on-one, coaching sessions may be the right way to go.

What To Wear Now?

Listen to the audio version of this post here.   Before we go back to the office, we wind up back in our closets, scrounging for something appropriate to wear to work. Some of us are perplexed. For more than a year we’ve dressed for Zoom – decent (maybe) on...
