This podcast draws on the feedback of one of our principals, Michael Boricki who was a Big-3 principal and left the firm on the day after he was appointed director, to discuss the technique he used to not only fix a stuttering problem, but use the pain from fixing the problem to introduce broader, and much needed, flexibility in this communication techniques. This podcast looks at:
• Simple words which can be used to limit stuttering.
• How the use of hand movements can aid in adding structure to responses and destabilizing competitors in discussions/debates.
• How deliberately placing oneself into high-pressure situations to deliver impromptu speeches can introduce career flexibility and greatly allow you to respond to career opportunities.
Much of this advice is based on Michael’s own experiences. Therefore, there is no control for this advice. However, if you feel you have a similar profile to Michael then much off this advice will be very useful.
You can see the impact of these techniques by listening to Michael speak today: all of the podcasts are done by Michael and none of them have been planned. They are all done impromptu-style off memory.
