    Book details


As followers of Lee Glickstein's popular seminars attest, effective public speaking isn't the result of being over-prepared or having a slick delivery. It's actually a creative, interactive process relying on the speaker's natural presence and willingness to be "in the moment." Now Glickstein shares his dramatically successful "transformational speaking" approach, showing that the key to successful public speaking lies in spiritual principles that emphasize self-realization and authenticity. Be Heard Now! teaches you how to:

Heal your "inner speaker" and overcome your fear of exposure
Project a genuine, personal presence to enhance your overall performance
Develop a keen awareness of the audience and benefit from their response
Use humor and vulnerability to captivate your listeners
Apply four essential components to write a successful speech

With Glickstein's compassionate, realistic approach, Be Heard Now! can help anyone become a confident, jitter-free public speaker whose ideas flow freely and persuasively.

Imagine standing in front of a room full of strangers ... and feeling absolutely at ease with yourself and in command of what you have to say.

    I have been doing a lot of public speaking for more years than I want to sometimes admit. And, throughout all those years, I have read countless books in an effort to continually improve the quality of my speaking before large groups. This is the best book I have read on the subject. It really is that good!Now author Lee Glickstein is certainly not the first to advocate the importance of speaking from the heart and really connecting with one's audience. But, I believe he has gone further than others at showing how to connect...really connect with an audience.So many speaking books are long on manipulative techniques for engaging an audience and the unfortunate result is so many robot speakers, using all the "right" techniques but never really connecting with the audience.The brilliance of the author's work on speaking is his correlation that the fear that many experience in speaking is because of their innate fear of the manipulative techniques they perceive as needed to be a great speaker. As the author shows us, there is no fear in connecting in an authentic way.I can't believe that somehow this book did not find me ten years ago when it first came out. I was likely too busy perfecting techniques rather than being open to a different philosophy of speaking.I highly recommend this book. I am so grateful to a new friend for her strong recommendation of the book and of the companion Speaking Circles program.

    I bought this book because of an article I read about a year ago. When I first started reading it, I thought, "Eh. I know this already." But as I continued to read, the power of the book opened up for me.Mr. Glickstein's numerous examples and excellent choice of chapter topics led me to want to create and be a part of a Speaking Circle. In fact, I went so far as to contact him to find out about training opportunities.My experiences in other stuctured group settings in which one's wonderful human qualities are affirmed have given me enough evidence to trust that Speaking Circles can do what they purport to do. Be Heard Now is the key to the door of your true voice.I heartily recommend this book to you if you wish to learn how to "come home" to yourself as you speak. It is an easy, but oh-so-powerful, book to read. By recommendation of other individuals, I have also just purchased the companion tape; I hear it dovetails well with the book.

    Like many people, I always found the prospect of getting up and talking to a group of people rather daunting, raising fears of embarrassment, a blank mind and a pounding heart. In Be Heard Now!, Lee Glickstein manages to make the usually intimidating subject of speaking in front of groups both engaging and inspiring. His approach is straightforward and practical -- simple steps to learn to be comfortably yourself, whether nervous or not. And his style is conversational, accessible and reassuring.I read an earlier, self-published version of this book a couple of years ago. I was so encouraged by the possibility of speaking comfortably and effectively to any size group that I began attending Lee Glickstein's Speaking Circles. The results were exactly as described in the book. Not only do I now enjoy speaking, but I have found it to be an extraordinary tool for personal transformation. This new, revised edition is even better - full of rich content and a compelling read.Glickstein contends that genuine personal presence rather than a polished, highly prepared delivery captures an audience's attention. Developed from his own desperate attempts to overcome stage fright, he offers what he calls "Transformational Speaking" as an alternative to traditional public speaking techniques.Glickstein not only provides advice and encouragement about how to feel more at ease and win the support of the audience. With chapters on how to prepare yourself, how to structure a talk and the perfect opening, Be Heard Now! helps out with what to say once you're up there. It's a great reference for beginners and experienced speakers as well.I highly recommend this book to anyone who speaks in front of any sized group, from giving a toast at a friend's wedding to business meetings to speeches. It might just improve your life as it did mine.

    The audio tape is the perfect companion to the book of the same title...I read the book and have now been able to reinforce the approach and concept that "Be Heard Now" introduces by listening to the tapes. What one normally hears about learning something new---the more senses you can utilize in the learning process the deeper the learning occurrs---the book and the tapes have done that for me. I usually listen to a portion of the tapes every day, even if only for a couple of minutes to re-trigger this whole new approach to public and one on one speaking. The main learning from the Book and with reinforcement from the Tapes is---listen, listen, listen to what your audience or group or person you will be speaking with is telling or showing you...you'd be amazed by the difference for me just listening to a couple of minutes of the tape while heading to the office or a customer place of business has had on me as a Sales Manager---whether dealing with my own group of employees, a business meeting, a customer presentation or just a conversation with another manager or even my own boss. The tape itself is done in a non traditional approach to that awful concept of "public speaking"----there are no memorized openings, gesture reinforcements, or the typical acting type approaches books/tapes in this category usually preach. The book is excellent, and the tapes have helped me with the reinforcement of Lee Glicksteins approach to the tapping in to your inner speaker.One Mans Opinion---but its worked for me folks...
