The most important business skill you possess is the ability to present your ideas in a clear and compelling way. Businesspeople who can't communicate effectively just don't reach the pinnacles of success.
And there is a little-known secret to developing better presentation skills. One that you won't find when you read most articles on presentation skills training, but one that's vital to developing the skills you need to succeed:
A powerful vocabulary.
Developing an executive-level vocabulary is crucial to delivering a top-notch presentation. That's because having a wide range of words at your disposal allows you to speak with confidence, knowing that you can say exactly what you mean without stumbling over words.
A powerful vocabulary helps you develop the presentation skills you need to get ahead in today's competitive workplace.
A study performed by scientist Johnson O'Connor backs this up. The study looked at vocabulary and executive level, and found a direct correlation between vocabulary and rank on the corporate ladder.
When a vocabulary test was given to executive and supervisory personnel in 39 large manufacturing companies, the test results reported the following:
|Executive Level||Test Score|
|Presidents and Vice Presidents
A higher vocabulary = a higher rank on the corporate ladder.
Do you think these people got ahead merely by using bigger words around the office? Of course not! They used their superior vocabularies to better communicate, and that included giving better presentations.
Which meant that their work was noticed more, and their innovative ideas were given respect. Because they had the presentation skills they needed, they were able to rise to the top of the corporate ladder.
The higher you climb on that ladder, the bigger and more important presentations you'll have to give. The only way to have the presentation skills of a top-level executive is to have an executive-level vocabulary!
So, if a powerful vocabulary is the key to developing executive-level presentation skills, how do you go about acquiring one?
There are hundreds of options – books, programs, courses. Some of them will cost you thousands of dollars. Others are boring and just don't work.
