[Dax’s 100 TED Talks #11 – Julian Treasure: How to speak so that people want to listen]
As part of my MAGIC Hundred education and growth goals I’m watching 100 TED talks by December 31st as a means to expose myself to new ideas and perspectives and expand my thinking.
Today I listened to this great little presentation by Julian Treasure where he spoke about the power of effective communication through speaking and those factors that lead to our communication losing its power.
Treasure starts be reminding us that the words we speak have GREAT power. In fact, they have the power to start wars and declare love and pretty much everything in between and so it would serve us to learn what it is that causes that power to lose its effect when communicating with others.
As someone who LOVES studying both the art and the science of interpersonal communication, I love both the simplicity and the practicality that Treasure brings to this subject and believe that ANYONE who is serious about having their words land with impact and influence (regardless of whether they are speaking from stage to change the world or speaking to their teenage kids and trying to get them to change their socks) would really benefit from hearing this message.
I really enjoyed this.
I think you will too 🙂
