Description - Power Speaking by Achim Nowak
This innovative companion integrates key concepts and ideas about public speaking into a clear, step-by-step, transformational method. Fuelled by the idea that the best speaking techniques are ineffective without personal essence, the author, a master speaking coach with a track record of accomplished actors and Fortune 500 clients, teaches emerging speakers how to grow the necessary skills and unleash their inner power. The book is divided in three parts or proficiency levels - Mastering the Basics, Making the Connection, and Polishing the Core - that provide systematic plan to self-development. Readers start with the use of voice and body movements, move on to learn the use of personal stories, intent listening, and positioning or reframing a topic, and finally undergo a thorough phase of self-examination: What personal values drive you as you speak? How spontaneous are you in front of a group? Where is fear blocking you from "breaking through"? Organized as a self-coaching guide, the book is carefully structured into concise chapters and subchapters and packed wit assignments, checklists, and other track-keeping tools.
