My Newest Book!
Mesmerize: How to Give Your Best Presentation Ever
Your sneak peek!!!
So happy to announce that my newest book, was just published!!! The title is Mesmerize: How to Give Your Best Presentation Ever. You can order it from Amazon or I would be happy to sign a copy and send it to you. I came to write about the topic based on my experience with students and colleagues who either were deathly afraid to give presentations or felt that their public speaking engagements fell short of their personal expectations. Here is a glimpse into the book! Happy Reading
“OH NO, you walk on stage and you see it in their eyes. Expectations! Each of them is thinking; inform me, educate me, entertain me, mesmerize me! And you are thinking, WHY ME? Why in the world did I ever agree to do this? Your anxiety is palpable; your fear is obvious, and your emotional stress has turned into physical signposts of your horror! You conjure up images of yourself vomiting all over the dais. The intense dreaded knots and a heart rate that must be over a zillion beats per minute have you convinced that you are going into cardiac arrest! Will you ever get out of this alive?
Intellectually, you know none of this makes sense. After all, you know your subject matter and no one else in the room is anywhere near the expert you are. Yet, your angst is over the top!
Whether you own a business, are climbing the corporate ladder, running for office, or leading a non-profit, public speaking should be an integral part of your personal “game plan”. Developing a known and reputable persona through public speaking can have a remarkable impact on how far you go and how successful you become in your career. Mesmerize offers you a way to actually enjoy public speaking and get ahead at the same time! It gives you a prescription to jettison the fear. And it provides the perfect way to architect your best presentation ever. So get ready for a truly transformational experience that will catapult you to success!”
The Invisible Leader:
The Model for Leading in the Virtual Workspace
By Dr. Ann Gladys
The Surprising Truth About What It Takes To Make Your Numbers and Sleep Better at Night
Here's a sneak peek!!!
In an age of re-engineering, re-purposing, and re-tooling; perhaps nothing is as pervasive as re-defining the art of work. That’s right, basic everyday work. The kind of work we do to support our families, pay the mortgage, and put food on the table. How is it possible that what used to be a highly supervised, single location, 9 to 5 workday has morphed into an incredibly flexible environment where work is performed in a house, a car, a conference room, and yes – even on the beach? And where is the leader, manager, or supervisor in this world? That’s right, invisible!
Losing visual contact with employees can create conditions tantamount to flying an airplane in the clouds with no visibility, only instrumentation. In this case, the pilot must navigate the skies with the belief that the instruments are functioning as promised. Just as the lack of visuals requires trust in the instruments, so too, the
invisible leader must trust his/her virtual employees. Ultimately, the leader is left with a decision that rests on two questions: can I trust my employees, and can I afford not to trust my employees?
