In his book Trust Me: Four Steps to Authenticity and Charisma Nick Morgan shows how anyone can be an effective speaker by presenting an image of authenticity and respect for their audience, whether in a group presentation or a one-on-one conversation.
Nick presents a four-step process, perfected in his teaching at Harvard, that enables the reader to use their own personal speaking style while becoming a more persuasive and charismatic communicator and leader.
The basis of this process is the fact that when words and body language are in conflict, body language wins every time. This isn’t easy to overcome, because normally body language is immediate, while the words lag slightly behind, and even a momentary conflict is perceptible to the audience. The key to success is to train your body language to unconsciously align with your message.
“If you’re a speaker who wants to raise your game to be the best you can be, then you need to read Trust Me. Nick Morgan has helped some of the most remarkable professional speakers around the world create top-notch content, deliver it with authenticity and charisma—and change the world.”
“As a speaker, you have to find your own voice. Nick Morgan’s four-step approach to communicating with personal authenticity is by far the best I have seen for successful public speaking.”
“In a political campaign today, you have to start powerful conversations that bring the candidate to life for the public, whether it’s in person, on television, or through the new media.
