The only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary

Don’t let yourself be taken by those who give the impression they’re not working, especially in oral communication. The more you progress with method the more you save time in preparation. But if you really need to leave a trace, to sufficiently shed new light on a subject in order to mobilize those listening to…

Don’t be so eager to believe everything you’re told

Confirmation biases are behind the main resistances to change. And we are all affected, whether we like it or not. From the moment we are convinced of something, the brain takes shortcuts: it highlights everything that will confirm our belief and minimize everything that undermines it… It’s a trap to take into account for oneself…

A man’s character may be learned…

Behind your speech, there is something essential to convey: your intention! Making cold and disembodied speeches will only serve to feed those who doubt your sincerity. By becoming accustomed to qualifying your subject, you will more easily show your opinion and your feelings. By multiplying relevant adjectives, it will be easier to convey the emotions…

To reread : The game precedes the rule! Don’t drop your ideas!…

Tomorrow’s world is built on today’s stories

“Telling a story” does not mean “talking about nonsense!” Relegating storytelling with manipulation tools is unfair and dangerous. The past is at the origin of innumerable stories: your last mission, the end of the year presentation, last week’s client… by the same token, your projects will have more chance of succeeding if they include a…

Ask your question, you will be an idiot for a second…

Many interesting questions are never asked because we don’t dare. And it often suits the speaker who sees the upcoming questions as destabilizing risks… That’s too bad because a study has shown that the more questions you get, the more likely it is that your idea will see the light of day!

Listening to others is already answering them

We could opine that listening should be a due, a matter of respect or education. We could then defer responsibility to the audience, wouldn’t that be practical!
