Leading a team? Preparing a presentation? Think different. Think SUSAN ANTHONY

Few women in history have done more than Susan B. Anthony (1820 – 1906) to uplift other women politically. Her pivotal role in the women’s suffrage movement is well known. She found her calling early in life. “I must concentrate all of my energies on the enfranchisement of my own sex!” When recently rereading about … Continue reading Leading a team?

Advantage: Superior Speaker — not superior argument

We tend to believe, perhaps naively, that the superior argument, the more logical & rational argument, the more thoughtful & measured argument, will win the debate; or at least ought to win the debate. However the more closely I look at this, the more I doubt it. Here are two clips, both from politics, where … Continue reading Advantage: Superior Speaker — not superior argument → The post Advantage: Superior...

Fear Of Public Speaking is Overhyped and Not Sensibly Understood

The fear of public speaking is greater than the fear of death! Surveys show that more people are afraid of public speaking than of death! etc., etc., etc.. Statements like these, which unfortunately are all too common, do a great disservice to the general public.
