Publisher's Summary

People are drawn to, and influenced by, leaders who communicate authentically, connect with people, and have immediate impact. So how do you become one? How can you learn to “own the room?” This book will help you develop your leadership presence. The authors offer a simple and compelling framework as well as practices for developing your "signature voice." Wherever you sit in an organization, you can develop presence if you are able to do two things well: demonstrate your authentic value and distinction; and connect to others in a positive way. Leaders who are able to be authentic while connecting with and impacting others have what the authors call a signature voice - a means of self-expression that is uniquely and distinctly your own. Once you embrace and express this invaluable skill, you won’t believe the tremendous impact you can have on those around you. Filled with real-life stories and examples, Own the Room will demystify the notion of presence and provide practical advice on how you can develop it.

    "WARNING: Not suitable for an audible book"
    What disappointed you about Own the Room?

    The book was not written to be listened to. There are numerous bullet point lists, partial phrases and diagrams that do not make sense when read aloud. I am interested in the content and plan to purchase the kindle version.


    Any additional comments?

    Audible seriously considering retracting this book.

    Story
    "Smokin Hot way to the Front of the Stage"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Realistically, what you would expect of a coaching book is mostly change your mind set or learn to sell something. These authors have brought the art of enhancing your personal and professional presence into the new world. I am taking the tips and redoing my entire presentation on the national stage, now feeling comfortable in my style enhanced by their sound advice.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    No characters, book was metaphorical in its teaching approach


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Excitement and turns you into a powerful energetic force


    Any additional comments?

    Wish they wrote it ten years ago
