26 Nov A Simple Premise
Invested 40 years in the corporate world. NEVER met a truly great communicator who couldn’t:
- Tell a great story
- Involve his or her audience in that story
- LISTEN in order to optimize points 1 and 2
For those who believe public speaking prowess, or negotiating acumen, or advanced selling models are stand-alones … good luck.
A compelling story that casts your audience in the narrative is the framework – but only outstanding listening skills bring your tale to life.
Public speaking programs are on every company training agenda.
Public listening programs? Not so much.
