Public Speaking and Communication Skills

The art of communication is the language of leadership
There are quotations from many respected leaders about how to be a powerful speaker.
My personal favorite is by Sir Winston Churchill:
“A good speech should be like a woman’s skirt:
long enough to cover the subject and short enough to create interest.”



That quote by Sir Winston Churchill actually says it all.  Good communications skills are vital to your leadership success and you need to learn how to convey your message thoroughly, yet succinctly.

Among the most common mistakes made in communications is to talk too much, stray off target, and in doing so lose your audience.  Let’s not forget that people who talk a lot, generally ‘say’ very little.

Very simply:  Words Are Power.

Therefore, good optimum communication skills are vital at every level of human interaction and in all aspects of life, love and business. Good communication makes the business world function or fail, and it’s also the substance of which our most intimate personal relationships are built from.

Brian Sterling-Vete will help prepare you to become a better communicator and more effective leader using his ground-breaking book, Mental Martial Arts, as your course guide and reference notes.

If you have an important point to make, don’t try to be subtle or clever.
Use a pile driver.  Hit the point once.
Then come back and hit it again.
Then hit it a third time with a tremendous whack.
