- Have you ever been put on the spot and kicked yourself later for not having a substantial, confident response?

- Have you ever lost out on a promotion because you didn't get along with your colleagues or boss?

- Have you ever blanked when delivering a speech or a presentation?

Saying the right thing isn’t just about feeling comfortable. It's also essential for building successful relationships, getting ahead at work, and increasing your income. To get what you want, you have to know how to ask for it, how to negotiate, how to react.

That's where Lisa Marshall's audiobook comes in.

With proven strategies and practical action plans, Smart Talk will help you resolve conflicts, strengthen your natural charisma, and master the art of persuasion. Never again will you dread a holiday party or be rendered speechless at a business meeting. Backed by solid research and written in an engaging narrative style with a warm sense of humor, communication expert Lisa B. Marshall translates her wealth of experience into practical, fresh advice to help you navigate any complex situation, and achieve professional success.

Book Excerpts

Read an Excerpt

1. Taking the “Hell” Out of Hello:How to Introduce Yourself
 
 
Please allow me to introduce myself / I’m a man of wealth and taste / I’ve been around for a long, long year / Stole many a man’s soul and faith.
—THE ROLLING STONES, “SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL”
When I was a young General Electric (GE) management trainee, I attended quarterly status meetings. One time we were waiting over thirty minutes for senior managers to arrive. As my luck would have it, nature was calling, so I left to use the restroom.

Praise for Smart Talk

“Lisa Marshall, reading her idea-packed guide with charm and clarity, goes well beyond the topic of giving speeches in this breezy, fast moving audiobook…she engages her listeners with her laid-back earnestness and frequent invitations to practice these techniques, quiz themselves, and put her suggestions into practice…her writing and speaking have the humanity needed to make listeners want to devour this material and take their communication skills to the next level.” – Audiofile Magazine

 

“The author narrates with a strong voice and conversational style and uses appropriate pauses to stand in for pacing in the written text. Occasional humor and engaging scenarios are delivered in a personal manner. This title would be a good addition to self-help collections in college and public libraries.” – Library Journal
