Have you ever been in a crowded room and just did not know what to say? I have often moved to the side of the room just to get a better perspective on who is attending and where is my place in either one of the conversations. This does not mean that I am shy; however, just not wanting to be over aggressive or pushy.
I’m sure you have heard the phrase that some people just have the ‘gift of gab’.
At a business meeting the other day I noticed there are certain individuals that just have a mastery of words as they are confident and secure in what they are saying. I know that these qualities don’t suddenly appear as they are developed over time and polished with the various challenges that confront us on a daily basis. So the next time you are in a business meeting, at a conference, in a restaurant or even at a family gathering listen and look closely for these tools of action as you will notice the following.
The individual(s) will:
1- Asks questions;
2- Is a good listener;
3- Uses positive body language
4- Commands respect;
5- Displays a sense of power; and will
6- Definitely motivate others.No doubt these are the necessary tools in a power conversation.
I’m Ready or YOU?
