Summary

Make every communication count - with a simple, four-step speaking model. 

Whether it's among colleagues at lunch or an audience of 1000, a leader's role is to move and inspire others. It's not only the big occasions that test a leader's mettle, but the little ones as well - in a casual conversation in the elevator, in phone calls, or one of many incidental, seemingly "insignificant" interactions in everyday work life. 

Written by one of the world's leading communications coaches, Speaking as a Leader shows you how to make the most of your daily communications, creating a presence on the job as a genuine and constant leader. 

In this eye-opening guide, aspiring (and established) leaders can enhance their reputations and influence by following a few simple steps. 

Speaking as a Leader:

  • Shows how to structure your thoughts and message in any situation using a four-step model; 
  • Offers tips on listening effectively, in three dimensions; 
  • Details why you are the best visual and how to avoid "Death by PowerPoint"; 
  • Offers guidance on taking the "numb" out of numbers; and 
  • Includes tips on moving from subject to message. 

With Speaking as a Leader, you'll learn to tap into your innate leadership skills at every occasion - whether small or large - and earn the sort of respect that creates devoted friends and passionate supporters.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

"You have it in you to be great"

This audiobook was efficiently organized, simplified where possible, and delivered with persuasive tone, all attributes of a fine speech. This is the kind of book you can refer to over and over again whenever addressing any group, or even just someone on the phone.
