How to Speak so That People Want to Listen

Speaking well is a secret weapon that successful people have.  We always admire people who speak well. I mean, one of the reasons why leaders like Barack Obama and Narendra Modi are so well liked is because of their ability to speak well and inspiringly. While we don’t all have ambitions of becoming political leaders, the art of speaking well will hold us in good stead. Everywhere. Formally and informally.

In the attached TED talk, Julian Treasure shows us what we should do to become speakers people would want to listen to. It is a brilliant talk and I would urge you to see the video.
