Start and end with the positive. 

 When bringing up sensitive topics, don't jump right into a difficult discussion, which will put the other person immediately on the defense. Open with the positive: Acknowledge what is already working, and what you appreciate about your colleague's strengths. Then ease into how you'd like to see the relationship or partnership improve in certain areas. Ending the conversation is also important. If you can't come up with a solution to your problem, at least end on a positive note with something like "I think it's good that we both got to this point. I know we're getting closer. Let's talk again and see if we can get this thing resolved."

The Three Pillars of Persuasive Speech: Ethos, Pathos, and Logos

The Three Pillars of Persuasive Speech: Ethos, Pathos, and Logos | Growing To Be A Better Communicator | Scoop.it

The art of persuasion is as old as human kind. Dating back to the 4th century BC, Aristotle's Rhetoric influenced the development of rhetorical theory. The treatise was a collection of the students notes' and demonstrates the Greek philosopher and scientist's commitment to developing the art of “winning the soul through discourse” as a systematic, scientific study. He says: Rhetoric is the counterpart of Dialectic. Both alike are concerned with such things as come, more or less, within the general ken of all men and belong to no definite science.

Want people who hear you speak to remember you long after your presentation is over? Follow my top five rules for success.

Bovee & Thill's Online Business Communication Magazines's curator insight, Today, 4:47 PM

"I've done about 40 presentations at conferences around the globe. I've given presentations to crowds of 300 people and audiences of more than 2,500.

 

"When I started giving presentations, I was pretty terrible.

In fact, for a long time I fell victim to the worst speaking mistake possible: kicking off my presentation by introducing myself. Sorry, but nobody who pays to attend an event really wants to hear you talking about how awesome you are.

 

"Today I'm consistently rated among the top one or two speakers at the events where I'm invited to speak."

The Curse of Knowledge

Many sensible strategies fail to drive action because executives formulate them in sweeping, general language. “Achieving customer delight!” “Becoming the most efficient manufacturer!” “Unlocking shareholder value!” One explanation for executives’ love affair with vague strategy statements relates to a phenomenon called the curse of knowledge. Top executives have had years of immersion in the logic […]

3 Powerful Secrets Pros Never Share About Public Speaking

3 Powerful Secrets Pros Never Share About Public Speaking | Growing To Be A Better Communicator | Scoop.it

Few acts are a divisive as public speaking, as half of us want to be on the big stage and half of us want to stay away from it as much as possible. As Jerry Seinfield once observed, more people fear public speaking than death: "If you had to be at a funeral, you'd rather be in the casket than doing the eulogy."

 

Here's a secret, though: Professional public speakers know a bunch of things that people avoiding the stage do not understand. As I've done more speaking, I've discovered some fascinating knowledge most people don't realize.
