Toss the PowerPoint - and Speak as an Impromptu Leader

May 9, 2018View for printing

In my career as a corporate "ghost writer," I produced a ton of speeches and PowerPoint presentations for senior executives. The top spokespersons loved those "ready to go" talks which they delivered from behind the podium - often to large groups.

All that has changed. Leaders today give fewer formal speeches. Instead, they are expected to be spontaneous and authentic, and share in one-on-one or small group situations just what they believe. This new approach to communicating requires a new set of carefully honed skills.
