Being indecisive or sounding indecisive when you speak is a common hurdle for many emerging leaders. Most of the time, it’s because you’re waiting for approval, permission or you’re fearful of saying the wrong thing. But when you sound indecisive when you speak, especially at work, it makes you look like you lack confidence in yourself - which in turn makes people question your capability at work. Sounding decisive when you speak is an important skill you must develop, and in this episode, you will learn how.I share with you the one major shift you need to make in your communication to sound more decisive (and this shift is extremely easy!). Then, I share with you two case studies so you can see the indecisive communication in action, understand what is wrong with it, and learn how to change it. You’ll learn what you should say instead to sound more decisive. By the end of this episode, you will have a number of communication tools and sentences that you can use to sound more decisive at work, and ultimately, boost the level of confidence you convey to others.Resources Mentioned in this Episode:YouTube video, Sound More Decisive When You SpeakJuly 2022 Podcast episode, Speak Like a Leader in MeetingsLearning & Development Video Courses!Assertive Communication Skills MasterclassBusiness Etiquette 101: Social Skills for SuccessPowerful, Confident Body Language for WomenLeadership Presence 30 Day ChallengeBecome Known as a Go-To Expert!Download 21 ideas on How to Become Known as a Go-To Expert:   https://www.executive-impressions.com/gotoexpertseriesCheck out Shortform, the world’s best book guides!Get 5 days of unlimited access to Shortform and an additional 20% discount on the annual subscription through my special link shortform.com/kararonin.Love the show?

Leaders need to be professional. This helps them to establish trust, credibility and a strong reputation in business. But what does “professionalism” mean when to comes to leadership. Am I talking about outfit or appearance? Not in this episode.

I’m talking about basic human traits that help you better interact with other people.You might ask yourself, “Well if they’re basic, don’t I already know about them?”. Maybe. But chances are you need a reminder or a different perspective to really cement those principles in your mind and help you become a better leader.

How can you be assertive on-the-spot? Being assertive when you need to and on-the-spot can be challenging, especially if you’re coming from a more passive style of communication.It can be really difficult to think of how to respond assertively to a negative comment, in the moment.I don’t know if this happens to you but sometimes when I’m in front of a stressful conversation, a conflict or a rude comment, I freeze. I can’t think of anything to say on-the-spot. I start mumbling. I get anxious. And I don’t know how to respond to this person - until 20 minutes later!Then I think of what I “should have said” or “could have said” to that person.This delayed response time isn’t helpful when you want to be assertive on-the-spot.In this podcast episode, I share with you five techniques to help you be assertive in the moment. These are techniques that have helped me as a recovering passive communicator and they have helped thousands of my students in my Assertive Communication Skills Masterclass too.In this episode, I talk about:Why is it so hard to think of a response on-the-spot?Try to calm your stress response.Be prepared, if you can.Listen first.Get your key message clear in your mind.Re-write previous conversations.Listen to this episode on the podcast platform of your choice: Apple Podcasts, Audible, Spotify, Google and more.Send Me Your QuestionsIf you would like to submit your own question for a future Q&A episode, please send an email to kara@executive-impressions.com. Resources Mentioned in this Episode:I talked about the Assertive Communication Skills Masterclass where you can learn the foundational skills to become more assertive in your personal and professional life.

How do you set boundaries with a colleague in the workplace who wants to be your best friend?The reality is, coworkers are not your friends. I know it sounds harsh.

Why do you need to have difficult conversations? Many people shy away from challenging or difficult conversations. They avoid them or make excuses as to why they don’t need to have that difficult conversation.Instead, they may try to leave “clues” in the hope the other person will pick up on those clues and change their behaviour. This rarely works.Difficult conversations are a necessary part of your personal and professional life. As a leader, rather than avoiding them, you need to tackle them head on. When you do, you feel empowered. Because you’re no longer taking a passive approach to life allowing a difficult situation to continue. You’re dealing with it in an assertive way.There are many reasons as to why you need to have difficult conversations. In this episode, I talk about the top 3 reasons that push me to have difficult conversations when I need to.You will learn about:People won’t pick up on your clues.It reduces your stress and anxiety.It helps you set boundaries for the future.If you’ve ever had difficulty addressing problems in your work life or personal life and you want reasons as to why difficult conversations are important, this episode is for you.Listen to this episode on the podcast platform of your choice: Apple Podcasts, Audible, Spotify, Google and more.I hope you enjoy this episode!Send Me Your QuestionsIf you would like to submit your own question for a future Q&A episode, please send an email to kara@executive-impressions.com. Resources Mentioned in this Episode:How to Approach Difficult and Stressful Conversations When You Don’t Like ConflictAssertive Communication Skills MasterclassDifficult Conversations YouTube VideoOther Learning & Development Video Courses!Business Etiquette 101: Social Skills for Success Video Course that I mentioned in this episode.Powerful, Confident Body Language for WomenLeadership Presence 30 Day ChallengeBecome Known as a Go-To Expert!Download 21 ideas on How to Become Known as a Go-To Expert:   https://www.executive-impressions.com/gotoexpertseriesLove the show?
