Your Dreams - Permission To Pull The Plug

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

She gives us the permission we need in America to pull the plug on all that. There is the strange voodoo of dreams. At least in America. Once we attach to one, such as becoming a famous investment expert or a professional dancer, we are doomed to stick with it. But that, as therapist Tracey Cleantis hammers in the book "The Next Happy," chasing the dream can destroy us. Americana is all about sticking with the dream.

Do you have my permission?

Speak Schmeak

Don't add me to your mailing list without my permission. Besides making yourself look like a spammer, it's just not considerate or professional to add people to your mailing list without permission. But adding me without my permission creates the perception that you don't care about building a relationship as much as you care about making a buck or building a huge list.

PowerPoint Tip: You need permission to use YouTube videos

Dave Paradi's PowerPoint Blog

I want to discuss the right way to get permission to do so. Permission, you ask? Why do I need permission? Just like every other broadcast medium, like television or a movie theatre, videos are copyrighted by the creator, and you need permission to use the video in your work. So how do you get permission? If you can’t get permission, consider a video from a different source or even a photograph to make your point.

"American Hustle" - Permission to love our inner Machiavelli

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

"American Hustle" exposes the manipulator in all of us.  That's why it is resonating with audiences. It frees us from the Boy Scoutish/Girl Scoutish notion that we are expected to play the game straight.  Now we can fully embrace and come to love our inner Machiavelli. Some of the characters, like Irving and Lady Edith, go heavy on the manipulation.  The rest, like Irving's wife, just do it when they see it as totally necessary.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev: Buddha gives us permission to feel compassion

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Those who haven't screwed up - and badly - are a shrinking minority. With so much economic, social, and political turbulence, most of us have wound up on the wrong side of whatever.    But, unlike alleged Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev , our misdeeds didn't get us labeled as an enemy of the people who some hope will wind up with the death penalty.

Baby Boomers: Still needing permission to "make it up"

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

  I now get it that to do that I needed permission. Last night I received that permission from an expert in organizational development.  There was a time - call it the Baby Boomer's version of "Camelot" - when professional success meant following the rules.    Sure some of us put in our time doing the counterculture.    Then the Recession of 1974 put the kibosh on that. 

Less-Is-More and Permission

Humor Power

We sometimes forget that most humor requires “permission&# from the audience to use it. Without permission, your humor can work against the less-is-more principle. If you persist in using humor without permission, the audience may be thinking: “There he/she goes again. Without being the winner, I felt I wouldn’t have had “permission&# to take the microphone during the awards ceremony and do two humor lines.

"Quiet" by Susan Cain: Americans need permission to be introverts

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

  A book by Susan Cain could give us permission to not have to be "on" so much of the time.  Be outgoing.    Well rounded.    Make others listen to what you say.    That was the formula for success we Baby Boomers grew up with.    For Millennials, with their tweets, Facebook pages, photos, and videos on YouTube, being out there in many many ways is even more intense. 

Don't wait to be asked: Take a permission audit of your speaking

The Eloquent Woman

Time to do a sorry audit, reader Miriam Gordon tweeted that I should turn next to a "permission audit" for women speakers. The more I thought about that, I realized there are two sides to asking permission in ways that don't benefit women speakers: One is asking for permission when you don't need to do so. The other is waiting to be asked, as if you needed someone to grant permission. Asking permission when you don't need to do so can take many forms.

Come on, did we really need permission to eat, buy bigger pants

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

  The women on it don't need permission from Julia Roberts [playing Elizabeth Gilbert] to eat and buy bigger pants.  Every day I take public transportation.    The film is targeted at the X-rays, as Tom Wolfe called those upper-middle-class trophy wives in BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES.   And it's sad, not a sign of personal liberation, that they would require a signal from somewhere to stuff their face now and then.

Andy Rooney, Dead at 92: The man who gave us permission to not be cool

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Andy Rooney was the Patron Saint of those who didn't intend to pull out all stops in being cool - or pretending to be young.    For instance, he reflected on "60 Minutes" one evening that he really wasn't into Lady Gaga.    The courage of those stances gave him, ironically, the identity of a kid who never lost the determination to speak his mind. Now Rooney has gone to that great bitching tent in the sky.

Do You Have Shut-Up Syndrome?

Speak and Deliver

As the King's Speech progresses, Mr. Logue slowly works to convince Prince Albert to give himself permission - permission to think his thoughts, permission to speak, and even permission to be King. Great speaking doesn't start with what you say or how you say it, but your willingness to give yourself permission to say it in the first place. Only you can turn on the permission switch. Colin Firth as Prince Albert, facing the firing squad, err, audience.

Convert iTunes M4P (and other) sounds to MP3

PowerPoint Tips

In most cases, you need permission to use copyrighted music in a presentation to someone else.

Before I start, let me say that I'm not a lawyer. If you have questions, get legal advice. That said, here's my understanding. Correct me if I'm wrong.)

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

In court today at the sentencing of convicted murderer Amber Guyger (10 years, w chance of parole after 5), Brandt asked the judge's permission to hug his brother's killer. Permission had been granted. Forgiveness is the first step in healing. And the brother of murder victim Botham Jean - Brandt Jean - began that process. Here are all the details from the New York Post.    Essentially, it was all about the symbolism of a hug.

Steve Jobs Commencement Address

The Communication Blog

I think this is a wonderful speech and I tried to reprint it in the last edition of my public speaking book but, unfortunately, permission was denied. With the recent death of Steve Jobs--one of the real geniuses of our time--I thought that public speaking students (and actually just about anyone) would enjoy reading a commencement speech he delivered some years ago.

Enjoying the Journey

The Presenter's Blog

The secret is to give ourselves permission to enjoy the journey, and that way, those who accompany us, be they family, friends, or audience, get to enjoy it too! This Christmas, give yourself permission to “be in the moment”. There is a parallel between enjoying presenting and enjoying the Holidays. Every Christmas I have a melt-down. I enter the festive season resolving “This time I will not be a stress-demon by Christmas Eve.”

Textbook Changes

The Communication Blog

The reason: permission problems. Again, the reason is permission problems, especially the difficulty/impossibility of getting digital rights. Cartoons will probably be cut back or eliminated entirely, largely because of cost (they’re much more expensive than photos) and digital permission problems. You may have noticed (or will soon notice) a number of changes in your textbooks and I thought I’d note some of these here.

Communication Strategies: Other-Orientation

The Communication Blog

< Grant permission. A simple statement such as “I know how difficult it is to talk about feelings” opens up the topic of feelings and gives the other person permission either to pursue such a discussion or to say nothing. Other-Orientation. Other-orientation is a quality of interpersonal effectiveness that includes the ability to adapt your messages to the other person.

Ethics in Public Speaking

The Communication Blog

If you were to profit financially from the speech with the visual aid, then you would need to secure permission. Ethics in Public Speaking I wrote this for the new edition of Essential Elements of Public Speaking, 7th edition (Hoboken, NJ: Pearson, 2021) but I thought it might be useful for any class in public speaking as a way of introducing the dimension of ethics and clarifying what is and what is not plagiarism.

Make your communication personal with photos

PowerPoint Tips

Be sure to get their permission. I see lots of presentation files and have started to notice that when people start designing slides, they go into a formal mode that makes the presentation less personal — and less effective. The negative impact is especially pronounced when the presentation is put online, because the audience doesn’t see the presenter (although their might be narration). Some presentations cry out for a personal touch.

"Eat Pray Love" Author Splits From Husband

Also, we were given permission not to be preoccupied with calories. Elizabeth Gilbert leveraged her global travels to go from the heartbreak  of divorce to hope for becoming whole on her own.

Here are 13 texting must-know guideposts to increase revenue and delight customers: 1. Keep it short. Max your message to 600 characters which is about 90 words or 4 – 6 sentences.
