Make every communication count - with a simple, four-step speaking model.
Whether it's among colleagues at lunch or an audience of 1000, a leader's role is to move and inspire others. It's not only the big occasions that test a leader's mettle, but the little ones as well - in a casual conversation in the elevator, in phone calls, or one of many incidental, seemingly "insignificant" interactions in everyday work life.
Written by one of the world's leading communications coaches, Speaking as a Leader shows you how to make the most of your daily communications, creating a presence on the job as a genuine and constant leader.
In this eye-opening guide, aspiring (and established) leaders can enhance their reputations and influence by following a few simple steps.
Speaking as a Leader:
With Speaking as a Leader, you'll learn to tap into your innate leadership skills at every occasion - whether small or large - and earn the sort of respect that creates devoted friends and passionate supporters.

I enjoyed the concept of the book. The narration was the only thing that bothered me some bc I felt like she was a smoker. -That may just be a personal problem though.
This is the first book I listened at a faster rate, x1.25. The content in this book is excellent. I would not call this book inspirational. It will serve as a good how-to guide to help you improve your communication skills as a leader. You may want to begin with Simon Sinik's book, "Start with Why."
This book is packed full of practical and inspirational tips to help us speak as leaders. While many tips are so simple they are almost "common sense", it is the how the book is arranged, that walks you through the process of speaking as a strong leader. I have my entire executive team reading this book!
Leaders speak to inspire not to inform
I really wish I would have been taking notes while listening. Many points I already do but there were still lots of thought provoking ideas here. I would recommend this book for anyone who deals with people regardless of where you are in an organization.
It's amazing how after reading this book I was able to improve my speaking by 100%. Not only did I improve but my entire company has now read this book and we are all better. I highly recommend it.
the book provides valuable tools for the person who wants to improve his/her leadership skills. It is the first book that I read where I can really learn techniques that will make me a better leader
I like the fact that the book gives you reccomendations about how to prepare a Leader's script and it gives you the components of this script.
All the chapters are equally interesting
I will practice my leader's script. Develop it and use it.
It will be useful that we can download the pdf because one needs to stuyd the book. This will save valauable time to the reader and will give more power to Amazon and to the writer as we , the users, will love your books more.I woudl like to see this suggestion implemented this year.
As a 30 year old manager I found this book extremely boring and not providing me with any unique or useful information. Maybe as a sophomore in college this would be useful
