When you were a kid, you naturally knew how to communicate by using body language and words in combination. Somehow, over time, bad habits and fear buried that knowledge. Your content is crucial, but if your actions, voice and style aren’t aligned and “congruent,” they’ll undermine your message. Speech expert Richard Newman shows you how to utilize your body language so it supports rather than undercuts your message. Some of his speaking tips are basic, but many will push you to become a better communicator and a better version of yourself. If you’re looking for presentation advice, this is a good place to start. Even seasoned speakers will find valuable information about getting their bodies and words on the same team.
In this summary, you will learn
- How your natural way of standing and speaking can connect you to your audience,
- What other communication styles you should use, and
- What strategies will help you best prepare for a presentation.
