Have more impact…Get better results
Do you need to:
- Influence your boss?
- Make more sales
- Get more resources for your department?
- Keep your job, get a promotion or get a new job?
- Inspire your people?
- Make change happen?
As we all work hard to achieve more, with fewer resources and in less time, the ability to influence, inspire, persuade and engage has never been more essential. Unfortunately, the idea of presenting, whether formally or informally, still strikes fear into the heart of many of us. In fact, you’ve probably heard of surveys that rank fear of public speaking as the most common phobia of all.
There’s a Seinfield gag that goes:
“A recent survey stated that the average person’s greatest fear is having to give a speech in public. Somehow this ranked even higher than death, which was third on the list. So, you’re telling me that at a funeral, most people would rather be the guy in the coffin than have to stand up and give a eulogy.”
Whatever the reliability or validity of these surveys, presenting ourselves effectively is an increasingly relevant and important skill to develop which is why I want to give you access to my interview with Gill Graves, author of “Presenting Yourself with Impact at Work”.
Whether you experience full blown stage fright with a pounding heart, hot flushes, dry mouth, shaky legs, and sweaty palms or just know that you need to present more powerfully in order to get your message across and the results you desire, Gill outlines 10 key strategies for “Presenting Yourself with Impact”.
