Habitudes for Communicators™
Learn how to effectively communicate with the next generation.
According to national surveys, Americans’ biggest fear is public speaking, surpassing fear of illness, flying, terrorism, and even death itself. It’s true. We fear it, but it’s a necessary element of our success. More robust than the other Habitudes, this new book is filled with sixteen communication principles and images, to be read, discussed and applied as a team. Each chapter contains discussion questions as well as personal application and practical suggestions for you to use to develop your communication.
One of the greatest concerns for those who lead the next generation is simply this:
We think we are communicating with our young people… but we aren’t.
The images in this book revolve around engaging and communicating with the next generation. You’ll learn how to communicate effectively through images like Windows and Mirrors, #3 Pencil, House of Fire, the Faded Flag, School Yearbook and more.
In this book, you will learn how to:
- Captivate even young audiences with your message
- Walk listeners through the mental “seasons” of a presentation
- Feel poised from start to finish during your delivery
- Get your point across in a matter of minutes
- Engage people at the heart level and foster life-change
- Craft the stages of a message which will prepare listeners to act
- Motivate listeners to “own” your message.
Habitudes for Communicators is ideal to use for discussion and training among:
- School Faculty
- Coaches and Athletic Staff
- Business Executives and Leaders
