Introverts' speaking style aids leadership?

The Eloquent Woman

This Forbes article suggests that introverts make better leaders by playing to their strengths, rather than fighting them--and cites a lot of speaking skills to bolster its point: By using a "think first, talk later" approach , introverts give themselves time to ponder, while appearing measured and thoughtful; this also gives subordinates a chance to contribute and can keep leaders from making mistakes by jumping in too fast.

According to some in the media, newly elected Pope Francis doesn’t get high marks for charisma, but his relaxed and chatty style will put people at ease. The good news is that if we look at recent history, we can see many examples of various speaking styles of former Popes. So in other words, there’s no one right presentation style that makes for Papal success.

The Truth About Public Speaking

Matt Eventoff

There is a saying in boxing that holds true for public speaking – “Styles Make Fights.” Styles also make presentations, speeches and media appearances – every person is unique and every person has a unique style, something that works for them. . This is why I have always felt that the idea that you can become a great orator after reading a book on public speaking is like being prepared to go on the Tour de France after reading a book on bicycling– not really possible.

In Honor of Presidents’ Day: Public Speaking Lessons from George Washington

No matter what your personal speaking style, take a lesson or two from George.

Public Speaking and Palm-Reading: What Are Your Hands Saying?

Matt Eventoff

Earlier this week, when discussing body language, Brad took the position that the “steepled” position for hands while speaking– where fingertips touch – is a body language faux pas, and can send signals of defensiveness and/or arrogance. My (contrarian) position: utilizing either “the steeple” or “the nest” for your hands while speaking may work very well; or you may appear guarded. . Presenting, speaking or appearing before the media isn’t any different.

WHAT IS YOUR BODY LANGUAGE SAYING ABOUT YOU?

Sandra Schrift - Executive Speech Coach

I came across one study that spoke about “body language comprises 55% of the force of any response, whereas the verbal content only provides 7%, and ‘paralanguage,’ or the intonation, pauses and sighs given when answering or speaking, represents 38% of the emphasis. If you are speaking about something very sad, don’t smile! If you want to appear confident and expressive, strive for a posture that is free and natural to your speaking style.

Otherwise, men and women speak about the same number of words in a day.)
