You know, being liked is not something that one normally associates with high powered success but Michelle Lederman, my guest in this podcast, has researched this topic in quite some detail and her research clearly proves that likability is pretty fundamental to success – both as an individual and as a leader.Michelle is the author of The 11 Laws of Likability, as well as being the Founder and CEO of Executive Essentials, a company that provides communication and leadership training.
In this interview Michelle gives great advice on a variety of topics – all relating to the importance of likability.
Have you ever wondered how to manage that “little voice” in your head that keeps putting you down? Well, Michelle, gives a great tip to manage just that, and explains why that is so important to being liked.
You will hear about Michelle’s advice to “stay unconvinced”, and to stop looking for evidence to justify your own first impressions.
Do you want to get your message across in the most authentic way? Listen to Michelle’s words of wisdom about aligning your verbal, vocal and visual communication.
Why is building your platform to get your message to as many people as possible so important to likability? Michelle’s premise is that the more your message is heard, the more trusted you will become.
The truth is that without likability we will all struggle to get our voice heard, and failing to do that limits our success both personally and professionally.
Michelle’s book is a great well of wonderful tips and strategies to help us win at business and life!
