Disgusting Visual Aids Don’t Support Your Words

Like to watch them at play, but not on a tatoo


Yes, visual aids will bring your words to life. As a Speech Coach, I have been teaching that for years.

However, not just any visual aid will do. Disgusting ones will distract and even revolt your audience.

Example: The grocery store customer told me he likes dogs. Very fine so far.
Yet then he pulled off his shirt–entirely–and pointed to his two dogs, displayed on a large tattoo on his arm. As you can guess, I would have preferred no visual aid at all.

So when you’re planning a visual aid to amplify your words, be sure you are sensitive to how the audience might react. Stay on the safe side, and you’ll get your meaning across more tastefully.

Commitment–the Highest Level of Communication

A golf professional told me–talking about life, not golf–“Losers make promises. Winners make commitments.”

In this brief video, you’ll hear about a splendid example of commitment I experienced when my friend Terry Brock said he would drive from out of town to meet me for lunch.

Then stormy weather arrived and. . .

…watch the video above to see what happened, and what we can learn from Terry that will benefit our business communication.

How to Get Great Customer Service When You Call

There are plenty of books, videos, articles and speeches about how to give good customer service–and they can be very helpful.

However, I’ve noticed that we see and hear very few comments and guidelines about how to get great customer service when we need it.

I’ve found a formula that will generate the action you want and need. Use the attitude, tone, and words this brief video–you’ll see it above– provides, and you’ll be pleased at how cooperative the customer service rep will become.

Even Elvis Didn’t Have a Hit With Every Song

I recorded this brief video on Monday, when most of us think about our goals.

Note that if the vastly talented Elvis didn’t have a hit with every song, then we need to become very realistic about our goals.

As I advise, even when we don’t reach coveted goals, we need to talk to ourselves positively and supportively.
