    Speak UP at work! How to speak up in meetings – 065

    Speak UP at work! How to speak up in meetings – 065

    Does the thought of speaking up in meetings fill you with dread?

    Do you keep quiet, never contributing for fear of being judged?



    You’re not alone, many people find meetings a daunting experience and, as a result, end up staying silent.

    Though this may feel like the safe option, it could be having a negative impact on your career.

    If you sit at the side-lines, you’ll remain invisible to your colleagues, including your boss, which could mean you’re overlooked when it comes to being offered exciting opportunities.



    In today's podcast I share my tips to help you feel confident enough to contribute in meetings and make sure people start paying attention to what you have to say.



    You can’t control how other people will respond to what you say, and you’re never going to be able to please everyone.

    What you can control is how you present yourself, and whether you take opportunities to speak up or let them pass you by.

    Let’s Speak! with Sandra Thompson: understanding yourself and others to achieve outstanding results – 064

    Let’s Speak! with Sandra Thompson: understanding yourself and others to achieve outstanding results – 064

    Allow me to introduce you to this week’s guest Sandra Thompson.



    Sandra runs a business that helps companies improve their customers' experiences, she lectures at a business school in London, and right now she's on a learning journey of her own, developing a deep understanding of emotional intelligence https://www.linkedin.com/in/sandra-thompson-04370b



    She describes emotional intelligence as your ability to understand and manage your own emotion, and your ability to relate and understand the emotion of others. Sandra says this essentially means being content in yourself and having fabulous relationships with people at work and at home.



    Subscribe to my newsletter and receive monthly tips and techniques to support your public speaking success and communicate with confidence: http://eepurl.com/gj6Sb9.



    Sandra talks about the importance of emotional intelligence for organisations in terms of 1) the interface between customers and staff, 2) enabling different parts of the business to work more effectively together, 3) leaders encouraging positive behaviours within the organisation. And says emotional intelligence is about "understanding how you feel and understanding how other people feel, to get the best result for everyone".



    How many meetings have you organised, or participated in where you see people who aren't engaged, or are being distracted by their laptops or phones? With this in mind, Sandra gives her top tips for using emotional intelligence to run effective meetings in the workplace.



    At a personal level, Sandra shows us how being emotionally intelligent can help us to have a better awareness of ourselves and also see what happens in others (e.g. through body language, eye contact). And how this can help us to have better relationships with everyone.



    Sandra shares her top tips for managers wanting to positively influence their workforce, people wanting to have better conversations with friends and relatives, and how to apply the skills of emotional intelligence right now!



    Sandra says; ”when you think about how automated life is becoming, this need to know yourself and others seems to be even more important!”

    This is the important question your listeners will want you to answer – 062

    This is the important question your listeners will want you to answer – 062

    What is the most important question you will be asked as a speaker but will probably never hear?

    The answer is... “What's in it for me?”

    Whenever you are presenting, delivering a speech or having an interaction with a work colleague, your listeners will be wondering what is in it for them?



    What you should do in every speech or presentation is have the audience, your listeners, in mind when you are preparing it.

    This is a big question to ask yourself, "What is in it for them?" Whether you are presenting at work, giving a motivational talk, or anytime you are speaking and want to share an idea.



    Think about who will be attending the presentation or speech, who is in your audience and what is motivating them to attend.

    Listen to todays show to hear why this is important and my top tips.
