Have you ever unintentionally offended anyone? Have people ever misunderstood you? Have you ever felt like you’re forcing the conversation? All three problems have the same solution–conversational preventative resuscitation (CPR).
Have you heard that you have just 30 seconds to get the listener’s attention when you start a presentation? That’s not exactly true. There is a time that’s even more important.
Half of the time when I tell a joke, you can hear crickets. I’m just not that funny. How do you get laughs anyway? You steal them!
