Transformation Tom™ Thoughts 

Look Each Audience Member in the Eye 
With the amount of virtual and social media surrounding us, looking someone in the eye is becoming a forgotten tool of relationship building and communication.

When speaking publicly, we often look over the audience and through the audience. I have been known to dart my eyes quickly between audience members or even look down at the floor. Audiences want a connection with the speaker. In addition to a message they can relate to, they want to feel as though you are talking directly to them. Take the time to make recognizable eye contact with each person in the audience.  Click to keep reading...

"You gave me some practical advice for responding to loaded questions meant to put other people on the spot.  A few days after our call, I had my first chance to put your advice into practice, and it couldn't have gone better.  More than just deflecting the negative intent of the questioner, I was able to turn the question around (graciously) in a way that ultimately gained me some respect and verbalized appreciation from my boss.  Score!"- Individual Coaching Client
