When you know how to harness the power of speech, you’ll be able to dominate any business environment—whether it’s negotiating with a client, a vendor, or managing employees. That’s why I’m excited to share my interview with Dr. Ethan Becker, the President of The Speech Improvement Company and a second-generation speech coach and trainer. Ethan has developed powerful, customized motivational training programs on communication and delivered them worldwide. Celebrity icons and major business leaders hire Ethan to control their fear of speaking, command greater attention and close larger deals. His book, Mastering Communication At Work, is an international bestseller and has been used by Harvard, Johns Hopkins, University of Texas, and many other schools.
In this episode, we dive into the subject of public speaking, both on the stage and with your team, and discuss powerful techniques for having successful conversations with clients or prospects. Ethan explains the ABCs of why most people have a fear of speaking and offers practical advice on how to overcome that fear. Ethan teaches how to turn defensiveness into a productive, positive conversation, an essential life skill for both work and personal life.
