YOU are the most important visual of any communication. Never forget it. Because of this: get yourself ready early in the morning and stay ready, no matter the venue. This is true whether you are in a 1:1 conversation in the hallway or delivering a keynote speech to 500 people. Your body language, your facial expression, your awareness of being the “best you”, is essential.

Ever been in a meeting where the leader was giving information that was categorized as “positive” but by his/her crossed arms, furrowed brow, monotone voice, distraction with papers or people, he/she conveyed anything but positive? Voice tone carries almost 40 percent of your message with non-verbal’s delivering a whopping 55 percent. Together those equal 93 percent of your message delivered credibly because of you and your packaging and sound.

Let ‘em have the best of you!
