    How To Speak Your Mind At Work


    We’ve all been there, sitting in a meeting, standing in the break room, or face-to-face in the boss’s office…thinking…"I know how to solve this"…"I have a great idea"…"I know what to do"…"pick ME to lead"…                     But something stops us from speaking up.

    Presentation Skills: How to Handle an Ambush

    Nine tips to successfully evade the presentation highwaymen.

    “Stand and deliver!”   For years it was the cry of the English Highwayman - a dashing masked figure atop a jet-black horse, hero to the masses while profoundest enemy of the rich upon whom he prayed.

    Two Surefire Ways to Bring Your Next Presentation to Life

    Are your presentations boring?

    For some reason, whenever we stand-up to make a presentation, many of us become our sternest selves. We’d be no more likely to break into a spontaneous smile than we would be to turn a quick pirouette. The same logic applies directly to the words being spoken from our unsmiling lips. Those words tend to be stripped-down minimal phrases.
