Leadership Communication Training: Know the Power of Protest by Ruth Sherman. It’s time to collectively raise our voices loud and clear and protest that we are Americans, united, and we will not stand for being terrorized or threatened by our own government – local, state, or federal.
I never thought I’d utter words like that. And I went to Kent State, so I know something about it. At the time, the Nixon administration had just bombed Cambodia, an escalation of the raging Vietnam War that had already snuffed out thousands of lives. So students at KSU organized a protest. It was angry, but mostly peaceful. Remember, we had the draft by lottery and it was only through luck that a young man would not be called. So the rest of America’s sons took up that slack. Back to Kent… the governor of Ohio called in the National Guard and they fired on the crowd. 13 unarmed students were shot, 4 of them killed. The horror and outrage were immediate and the protests exploded across the country. Can you see the parallels today? 3 wars. A protest needs leaders that are respected. Public Speaking & Presentation Skills Training by Ruth Sherman. In my newsletters leading up to my TEDx Talk on February 29, (Part 1 here & Part 2 here & Part 3 here), I wrote and spoke about how I applied for and was selected to do a TEDx Talk, as well as how torturous the preparation process was.
Now I have a chance to share my TEDx Talk with you and give you some final thoughts about my experience. This TEDx was sponsored by the University of Mississippi, the state’s flagship university. I’d never been to the state before, so was excited to go. Ole Miss has a lot of history, much of it around the Civil War, and exploring the campus and the town of Oxford was an education. Southern hospitality is no joke, but it was more than that. So, rehearsals… you know what a nutcase I am about this aspect of the process. The venue was The Ford Center, a beautiful performing arts center where it so happened Barack Obama and John McCain had held a debate.
The day of, call was about 2 hours prior to showtime. Top Video Conference Training: Know all the Do's and Don’t's by Ruth Sherman. Leadership Skills & Executive Communication Training: Alternatives to Handshakes by Ruth Sherman. In my field, the nonverbal communication code of touch is known as haptics.
Yes, it’s the same term phone manufacturers use to refer to the mobile phone vibrate notification. In particular, the handshake has been a powerful tool in Western business communication for decades. So I’ve been very curious about how our use of touch, including the handshake, will change when physical distancing is relaxed, what it will mean, and how we’ll adapt. Confession: I will not be unhappy to see the habit of business hugging go away.
I always thought that was fraught and even sexist as we rarely see two men doing it. But what about the handshake? Media Interview Training Courses by Ruth Sherman.
