Summary

When you speak, whether on stage, in a meeting or on the telephone, ask yourself:
 
* Do you feel confident and captivate your audience?
 
* Do you command the room naturally, and feel like you are completely connecting with your audience?
 
* Do you feel like you get the full respect you deserve and the results you want?
 
* Are you recognized as a leader that people genuinely want to follow and support?
 
* Have you built a positive, sustainable corporate culture center around loyal, cooperative and effective teams, and strong, lasting client relationships?
 
* Have you reached your greatest potential?
 
If you’re like most people, your response to many and even most of these questions is, "No, but I want to!" If that’s the case, then this book is for you. Speaking to Influence is all about helping you understand how the way that you speak has a powerful effect on your ability to influence your surroundings, your relationships, your reputation, and your potential to succeed. If you feel stuck, like you’ve hit a plateau in life then this book will show you how to take a step back and assess how your current style of communication is keeping you from achieving the results you want and maximizing your powers of influence.
 
We all suffer from a fatal Blindspot: that Blindspot is the distinction between how we think we come across when we speak, and how other people actually perceive us and interpret what we’ve said. Want proof? Have you ever had an argument where one person says, "Why are you mad? What did I say?" And the response is, "It’s not what you said, it’s how you said it!" Well, the truth is both what you say and how you say it are critically important to having people understand not only your content, but also your intent. It crystallizes how you actually feel about what you’re saying, and as a result, how others should feel about it and respond.
 
The disconnect between the words you use and the way you deliver them sabotages productive conversation and leads you and the other person into a downward spiral of miscommunication, frustration and even hurt feelings. Nevertheless, one thing remains consistent: Whether you think it’s because they weren’t listening, they’re too sensitive, they are just plain rude, or they simply don’t care, you’re quick to assume that it’s the other person’s fault. But what if there was something in the way you were communicating that allowed that to happen, facilitated it, or even caused it?
 
In Speaking to Influence, Dr. Laura Sicola walks you through the three key channels of speech communication and how they need to work together for people not just to "get it" when you talk, but also to "get you." You’ll explore strategies in storytelling for impact, how people can "see" what you look like even when you’re talking on the telephone, hidden "fillers" to avoid, and how to identify and control common vocal habits that creep into your speech and undermine your credibility.

     The marketing world isn't what it used to be. Simply creating a good product isn't enough, and standard advertisements now just get lost amongst all the others. To get people's attention and be truly successful, you've got to stand out and get noticed-just like a purple cow.
     
     
     
    Most of us wouldn't stop and stare at something mundane, like a herd of cows. But if one of those cows happened to be bright purple, it would draw attention far and wide. As an introduction to the modern marketing world, Purple Cow works on exactly that principle, teaching you how to create and market an extraordinary product that stands out from its ordinary competitors.
     
     
     
    You will learn:
     
     
     
    ·      That your best potential customers should be seeking you out, and not the other way around
     
    ·      Why catering your products and ads to the majority is the worst thing you can do
     
    ·      How to expand your business once you've created a successful product.

    Why do some people achieve great personal success, yet never succeed in building a business or making an impact in their organization? John C. Maxwell knows the answer. “The greatest leadership principle that I have ever learned in over twenty-five years of leadership,” says Maxwell, “is that those closest to the leader will determine the success level of that leader.” It’s not enough for a leader to have vision, energy, drive, and conviction. If you want to see your dream come to fruition, you must learn how to develop the leaders around you. Whether you’re the leader of a non-profit organization, small business, or Fortune 500 company, Developing the Leaders Around You can help you to take others to the limits of their potential and your organization to a whole new level.

    In The Power of Soft, Hilary Gallo Reveals a more effective way to get what you want—both in and out of the board room. 
    Hilary spent years negotiating multi-million pound deals as a lawyer and began to notice that tough, bullying behaviour rarely got him or his clients the outcomes they were looking for. Over the years he began to develop a new way of approaching negotiations—the power of soft—and soon found his work and home life getting richer. 
    In life and in business we often mask our inner vulnerability by adopting a hard, unwavering and ultimately ineffective approach. Instead, Gallo proves that our true power stems from drawing strength from our mental core and balancing that inner strength with a softer, more approachable front. He teaches us to see reality more clearly by looking past our judgments and preconceptions and to focus our energy on what we actually need to achieve. 
    What started as a negotiation tactic soon became a philosophy for life. Whether closing a business deal or trying to get your kids to bed, The Power of Soft is an elegant, holistic and most of all effective method to get what you need and still be kind.
