Communication is the number one soft skill needed in leadership roles today, according to the leading executive search firms. How is the failure to communicate clearly and honestly affecting our ability to forge prosperous businesses and communities?
Speaker Coach and Communications Expert Rosemary Ravinal believes that everyone has the potential to speak with impact. Yet, our personal “dragons” are eroding the quality of human communication in every aspect of our lives. That’s why she is on a mission to “Slay the Dragons of Bad Communication.” The dragons are metaphors for the many factors, real and imagined, that hold us back from the clear, compelling, and heartfelt communication that can help build a better world.
This talk will share simple techniques to sharpen your daggers against poor speech patterns, habits, and misconceptions. These include overwhelming fear, the false belief that we have nothing of value to say, and that no one will want to listen. Rosemary offers a surprisingly potent secret weapon against the dragons in the form of five actions that will help unleash the transformative power of your voice.
Rosemary will show you how to battle fear, brain freeze and poor word choices that weaken the power of our authentic ideas. She’ll also share why, if you’re speaking from your heart, and speaking your truth, nothing can stop you.
