Crying Babies & "Human Response" - That depends

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

And the human response isn't always a melting of one's heart. That's a universal expected pleasure. The human response is not to consider the little one cute. The human response? Critics of Donald Trump assume the crying-baby incident is a gotcha. The meme which fast overtook the media is: Being around babies humanizes us. It sure does. It can be annoyance. Or worse. Take dining out. And, you bet, crying babies in restaurants trigger rage.

Disabled Speakers: Are We Living Up to Our Responsibilities?

Speak and Deliver

At 151,000, it was below expectations. That fast response signals how many contract workers aren't booked solid. The January jobs report was no surprise to those of us who are out there every day hustling for work. Yes, the economy has been slowing.

What did you expect when you wrote your speech?

Pivotal Public Speaking

Did you get some response? . What did you expect? . If it was not successful, if it did not get response, then possibly it did not meet your expectations. What were your expectations?

PRESENTATION NERVES: UNMASK THOSE PERCEPTIONS

Professionally Speaking...

Unfortunately it doesn't matter whether the stressful stimulus is a car careening toward us or the questions we'll get asked in next week's presentation; our brain responds with the same fight or flight response. In the fight or flight response, the brain is reacting instinctively to a perception, calling the autonomic nervous system into action. This technique, however, is not one that you can employ once and expect miracles.

Using LinkedIn as a Sales Tool? Try this to build business…

SpeakerSue Says...

Don’t expect a response. “This is like asking for a woman’s phone number ten minutes after meeting her.” Eric Field. That is how Eric described the icky feeling when “Some goof asks to join my network and then hits me with a sales pitch ten minutes later.”. Truth is there is a much better chance of getting that phone number than getting the contact to say, “Yes please”. LinkedIn is an awesome prospecting tool if your mindset is right. Mindset?
