Great blog entry! There are too many CEOs who don't work at improving their public speaking skills. I'll check out that article you recommended.

Another great resource for CEOs who want to improve their speaking skills is James Humes excellent book "Speak Like Churchill, Stand Like Lincoln: 21 Powerful Secrets of History's Greatest Speakers." It's a quick read with lots of outstandig speaking tips backed up with real world examples from the best speakers. Humes is an established expert who has written well-regarded speeches for five American presidents.


Appreciate your comments Bill. You are right that Focus is a critical skill (rather mindset), but I find that most CEO's actually have Focus. Otherwise tough to get to CEO - but almost ALL are not able to effectively communicate that Focus. Which is why my "Top Five."
