That was the fundamentals of PAW Communications. That is, enhancing public speaking skills by imitating the behaviors and seeming mindsets of DOGS. Here is that column.
For example, DOGS intuitively know to maintain just-the-rigtht intensity of eye contact with their audiences. They align all facial gestures and body language to mirror the shifting moods out there. Most importantly, zen-like, they are in the now. Present. The most common error public speakers make is exiting the now to watch themselves perform. You bet, audiences sense they have turned inward - and left them.
The good news is that the Genova Executive Communications boutique has a new PAW Communications Public Speaking Coach. He's Lee K. Genova. On September 14th, the adoption papers get signed at Animal Haven Shelter, North Haven, Connecticut. In exchange for any help he will be giving you in the future, Lee K. asks that you find it in your heart to swing by an animal shelter and bring one of his animal friends home with you. Pets are good for your health.
