Why it’s important to be steady

Why it’s important to be steady

There’s something impressive about a steady speaker. Being able to use your voice and body to convey credibility allows your listeners to relax and feel that they are in safe hands.

This chapter helps with everything you’ll need to exude confidence. You’ll learn:

  • How to increase your impact by speaking slowly.
  • The body posture that adds gravitas.
  • What to do with your hands.
  • How to pause, so people remember you as a clear communicator.

Focus on these areas of non-verbal behaviour and you’ll come across as much more authoritative.
