How to Speak So People Want to Listen

Instructor: Pete Mockaitis | How to Be Awesome at Your Job

Do you want to be an engaging speaker? In this audio-only course from How to Be Awesome at Your Job, international speaker Julian Treasure shares tactics and techniques that improve how you communicate. Julian stresses the importance of learning how to listen first. Understanding how your audience listens will improve your speaking. Julian shows you words to avoid and roadblocks to work around. If you’re more concerned about looking good or being right than you are about giving value to your audience, then your presentation won’t have any impact. Julian shows you ways to vary how you speak to keep your voice engaging. Change up your pace, tone, pitch, and volume to make your speaking more dynamic. You can also resonate your voice from your chest to sound more authoritative. Julian encourages you to keep your posture straight for more powerful speaking. Hunching prevents you from using your voice at its best. Julian concludes with the four C’s of good listening.
