Working the room : how to move people to action through audience-centered speaking by Nick Morgan( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and Chinese and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This useful guide to modern public speaking in business situations begins (as did public speaking) with the ancient Greeks. It's an auspicious start: the Greeks' influence lasted into the 20th century, even after television made our relationship with most of the speakers we hear far more intimate. Morgan, the founder of a communications coaching company, proposes what he calls "the audience-centered presentation process," in which the speaker listens to that audience-two-way communication, in other words. Morgan breaks down the generation of such a presentation into a series of steps, with guidelines and methods for overcoming phobias (he is adamant that his readers conduct the most intensive rehearsals possible, including at least one in the actual presentation site). He also warns against Q & A sessions (particularly for the media), lame and irrelevant jokes, and videoconferencing, and seems to loathe Power Point. While he speaks of "kinesthetics"-"being aware of the position and movement of the body in space"-he generally avoids polysyllables and never pushes fancy-sounding concepts as magic wands. This is a clear, engaging guide any socially and verbally competent person can benefit from, and not only those readers speaking to the business world

Trust me : four steps to authenticity and charisma by Nick Morgan( Book )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As Morgan explains, we are all unconscious experts in reading each other's body language. When words and body language are in conflict, we believe the body language every time. This makes conscious efforts to change our unconscious behavior difficult. Even momentary lapses are perceptible to the audience. The key to success is to train your body language to unconsciously align with your message." "Trust Me outlines the four steps to communication success: openness, connection, passion, and listening. In addition, the book offers an in-depth analysis of the research that underlies the four-step process and includes tips for controlling fear when communicating."--BOOK JACKET
