Dieses Buch war eine echte Erleuchtung bzw. Erleichterung für mich! Glickstein stellt sein Konzept des authentischen Sprechens vor und beschreibt, wie man richtig Spaß haben kann bei öffentlichen Reden, egal ob mit Einzelnen oder vor Gruppen mit Hundert(en) Menschen. Glickstein vertritt die Auffassung, dass man als Sprecher vor allem und immer authentisch bleiben soll. Glicksteins Vorschläge sind detailliert und praxisnah, da er selbst öffentlich spricht und viele Menschen unterstützt hat, die Angst vor Reden zu verlieren. Wer vor Gruppen spricht, wird von diesem Buch garantiert profitieren.
I ran across this book while looking for another book...the subtitle was so captivating I had to pick it up, look at it, put it back, go back to it and than start browsing through the book. Was I glad I did, because I bought it---and was lucky enough to than be able to participate in a Speaking Circle (covered heavily in the book) that the author gave just days later at the Bookstore. The earlier written review about the book pretty much sums up the overview of the book itself and the authors approach to new ways to view speaking...I'll share my story: scared, self conscience, overprepared for every talk I have done---and in my work I've done many, but always taken the "it wont be good unless I hurt and suffer" before the talk itself with painful memorizatons, negative projections and self doubting mental gymnastics...after the book and the Speaking Circle experience as well as listening to the audio version of the book, I can honestly say; this stuff has worked for me..it may seem hokey to you at first, but thats because it is so ground breaking---give it a shot, take a chance---what do you have to lose but your fear and doubt---there is much to be gained. I am hoping to use the principals from the book in not only my approach to speaking, but in all areas of my relationships with other people when communicating in any form. Nice work, easy reading, practical to implement..go for it gentle reader, you will gain much, I surely did.
Lee Glickstein offers a unique approach to public speaking. No more canned, "polished" acts in front of a group! Who likes to memorize, anyway?? BE HEARD NOW involves becoming more connected to your audience, which in turn creates an authentic, fresh message each and every time you speak to a group. Yes, there are preparations to be made before you speak but it doesn't work to copy someone else's style or words. The idea in this book is to bring out your own creative, genuine style when you speak. And, by weaving personal stories and anecdotes from your own life into a message you truly feel compelled to talk about, you can draw rapt attention from your audience. It's a wonderful, refreshing approach to speaking from the heart. I loved this audio tape. I've listened to it a dozen times. I used the techniques in a recent promotional opportunity at work and was chosen hands above the other candidates. It works!
This tape is a wonderful work that will help you connect with your audience. You might find some of the techniques far removed from the beaten path of traditional speech coaches, and that's okay. Lee Glickstein has figured out how to really build a personal bond with audiences that transcends the traditional rules of thumb. Read the book. Listen to the tape. You'll be amazed with the results.
The Speaking Circle way really works.I've read the book and attended Speaking Circles, and my speaking in public, and even one-on-one, has changed significantly as a result. Basically,you learn how to connect with people in a new and gratifying way. Thanks Lee.
