Item Description...
In Speak from the Heart, Emmy Award-winning broadcaster, newspaper columnist, and motivational speaker Steve Adubato reveals the secrets to being a great communicator -- with a program that will dramatically change the way you talk, listen, and connect with others.

Steve Adubato's life experiences, both professional and as a husband, son, brother, and father, have taught him invaluable lessons about the power of personal, sincere communication. In Speak from the Heart, he demonstrates that being a truly great communicator is not simply about being articulate or being a "good talker." It is not about fancy visuals and PowerPoint presentations, or hard-core sales pitches, or even who has the most facts, figures, and technical wizardry. What really counts is making an authentic connection with other people that comes not merely from the intellect but from the heart.

If you want to make a lasting impact, Dr. Adubato shows you how to engage people through empathy and understanding, how to be a great listener, and how to make an audience -- whether one, one hundred, or one thousand people -- care about you and your message. He helps you to rely less on written speeches, teleprompters, and index cards full of too much forgettable information, and learn, instead, how to tell a compelling story and create excitement and enthusiasm. You will learn, for example, how to:

  • Lecture less and engage more

  • Communicate under pressure

  • Make effective use of eye contact

  • Develop a conversational style

  • Inspire in a human, personal way

  • Become comfortable with your core message

Speak from the Heart will not only make it easier for you to communicate your message without being ignored or misunderstood; it will also improve your relationships with other people and help you to become more productive at work -- with more satisfaction and less stress.

Written by a man who has trained thousands of professionals in all walks of life, including corporate managers, lawyers, educators, health professionals, salespeople, and customer service reps, Speak from the Heart is for anyone who interacts with others at work, at home, in the community, or at social functions.

Communicating effectively--with a significant other, a roomful of colleagues, or an auditorium packed with strangers--can challenge even the most articulate. In Speak from the Heart, Emmy-winning broadcaster Steve Adubato maintains that success comes from the direct emotional connections you make with your audience. Using his own experiences, as well as those of a range of notables from Oprah Winfrey to Colin Powell, he offers specific ways to develop that bond in circumstances where it matters most. Adubato shows how public speakers can get a handle on their audience and their message, determine their key themes, and then outline them to encourage as interesting and engaging a delivery as possible. He explains how "talking without speaking" plays a vital role in communicative settings and offers tips on body language (gesture toward someone with an open hand, palm up, rather than a pointed index finger), first impressions ("the level of confidence you have is first seen in the way you hold your body"), and active listening (eye contact, gestures, and smiles all convey your interest). Adubato additionally applies these principles to casual business encounters, leadership situations, workplace teams, communication technology, customer service, and the particular considerations that gender often interjects. "Being a truly great communicator is not simply about being articulate," he writes. "It's about who can make an audience care about the message and find the words that touch not only the intellect but also the heart." His precise advice and suggested exercises should help anyone improve this critical skill. --Howard Rothman

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Heartfelt Thanks  Apr 18, 2007
As a professional speaker, I long ago learned the secret of "speaking from the heart." And, most of the better books on public speaking do in fact make this among their most important points. But, by using this critical point as his book title, Steve Adubato has brought this important concept front and center. Loud and clear!

One of the things I liked most about this book was its excellent organization. The author connects with his great title by devoting the first part of the book to "Communicating with Passion." Then, the author drills down on the specific skills that support ones ability to speak with passion.

In an age where so many books are not well organized and therefore tax the reader with developing ones own analytical framework for the subject, this book lays out a sound framework for being a great communicator. The framework is then well supported by both theory, and anecdotes that serve to effectively drive home the learning point.

At the risk of being picky, my sole disappointment is that the author acknowledges some leading self improvement greats (e.g., Dyer, Robbins, et al) as among the very best speakers, but regretfully never shares what he thinks makes each of them such a standout. Is the only learning point from these greats that they speak from the heart? Personally, I believe each of those listed draws on many of the other points made by Adubato. Given the authors clear expertise, I would have benefited even more had he shared his insights into what makes those he learned from so great. Steve, is that the sequel? "Speakers from the Heart"?? I am ready to preorder that gem.
