Thought Leadership From Someone Who Thinks

Book Extract: All Communication is Inside Out

Almost thirty years ago, when my friend Alan and I left the world of theater and came into the business world doing our ‘presentation skills program on rocket fuel’ (as one client called it), we were, essentially, training participants how to implement our tips and techniques.   “Stand like this and you’ll look impressive.”   “Move your arms with these gestures and you’ll appear purposeful.”   Because our clients loved these easy fixes – and assumed them to be long-lasting – it took me a while to work out that there was a deep flaw in this approach.   The [...]
