“There are some people who raise their upper lip so high, or let the lower lip sag so much, that their teeth are almost entirely visible. This is entirely contrary to decorum, which forbids you to allow your teeth to be uncovered, since nature gave us lips to conceal them.”

Those words are come from a 1703 book entitled “The Rules of Christian Decorum and Civility.” But to look at the serious faces in corporate boardrooms today, you’d think it was an excerpt from an employee handbook.

The fact is that a smile is a great way to connect with your colleagues. At Speechworks, we call a smile a “handshake with your face.” If you’re interested in improving how you come across to your colleagues, attend our communication skills workshop. You’ll deliver several presentations in front of a small group, all with the help of our expert coaches.

The workshop focuses on two areas:

  • How to organize a message that is simple and focuses on audience needs. Speechworks teaches a simple Formula for focusing on listener needs. We believe that if you have strong content, you will be more confident when you get up to speak.
  • How to deliver the message in a style that connects with the listeners. We focus on eye contact, gestures, voice energy, and facial energy. Our coaches will give you private feedback on where you most need to improve.

Consider attending a workshop. We’ll show you how to connect with colleagues and build relationships.

Speechworks is a communication and selling skills coaching firm. We teach professionals how to craft and deliver complex messages in a simple, persuasive manner.
