Revue de presse

"This book is filled with practical wisdom, exercises, and exactly the right advice to help you overcome barriers to becoming a welcome, passionate, effective speaker."

"I wish I had owned a copy of The Well-Spoken Woman before I first stepped up to a microphone. Decisions look different when there’s a woman at the table, but we have to get there first—and Jahnke has a keen sense of what it truly takes for any woman to transform her ambitions into real-world success."

"This book is a great resource for every woman who wants to make her voice heard: proven techniques, real-life examples, and helpful tips on how to make the most of every presentation—from school seminars and business meetings to local political campaigns and nationally televised debates."
—ANN F. LEWIS, former White House director of communications

"For years, women across the country have relied on Christine K. Jahnke. From governors to senators, she’s helped women craft their own persuasive stories and remain confident no matter what comes their way. With this book, she adds insight from accomplished women—and brings her powerful lessons for communicating to everyone. This book is a tool to help women find their voices and make our country better."

"This is a great ‘how to do it well’ manual. And I loved the illustrative stories that created a sense of intimacy with women I’ve admired from afar. I want this book with me wherever I go—a great resource, and how nice to be in the company of Maya Angelou, Ann Richards, Hillary Clinton, and Barbara Jordan!"
—DONNA STARK, vice president, the Annie E. Casey Foundation

"Speech coach Christine K. Jahnke has written a book that will motivate women to believe in themselves and become great speakers. She believes women should be risk takers and cites numerous examples of how everyday women have exceeded audience expectations."
—CELINDA LAKE, pollster and strategist, Lake Research Partners

"We may have ‘come a long way, baby,’ but when it comes to speaking publicly—whether in front of a TV camera or an audience—women still face a unique set of expectations and assumptions. And no one understands that like Christine K. Jahnke. She’s dedicated her career to helping women look and sound their best. I’ve watched Jahnke work her magic on women politicians. And I find myself turning instinctively to the advice she gave those women for myself."
—AMY WALTER, political analyst and TV commentator

"Jahnke is a brilliant communicator and teacher. Armed with this personal guide packed with her field-tested strategies and practical tips, you will ace your media interviews, speeches, testimony, and debates. This book is an indispensable tool for any woman who wants to get her message out."
—DEBBIE WALSH, director, Center for American Women and Politics, Rutgers University

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Practical advice for finding your out-front voice 30 décembre 2011
Par Story Circle Book Reviews - Publié sur
If you are seeking an up-to-the-minute resource that will turn you into a first rate speaker, The Well-Spoken Woman is your book. Written by top speech coach Christine K. Jahnke, this book leads you into claiming your power by confidently stating your ideas and opinions while looking polished and prepared. In short, it helps you conquer public-speaking anxiety and be taken seriously. Illustrated by Kersti Frigell with real life examples from speakers such as Ann Richards, Pat Summitt, Maya Angelou, and Melinda Gates, the material is engagingly displayed and clearly laid out.

The Well-Spoken Woman's opening premise is that a woman's power persona evolves from bringing her whole self and signature style to the podium. "Expression and engagement are hot... Dialogue, listening, and showing empathy are now valued and respected." It seems the time has finally come to express our uniquely feminine leadership from the front of the room.

Research reveals that 58% of a speaker's impact comes from body language and appearance, 38% from voice quality, and 7% from the message. Now that we have the science behind it, it's easier for a woman to identify which elements of her presentation really matter and which she should spend the most time improving. This is the part of the book I learned the most from; it changed my focus from the message itself to the way my voice carries the message, and from what I wear to how I move.

After learning what makes for an impactful live performance, Jahnke moves on to something she calls the "the five C's of message development": clarity, connection, compelling, concise, and continual. The neat thing about her "message map" technology is that it applies to all different kinds of topics. She then examines which tools work best for each "C," how to practice a speech, and whether to write it out first.

If you've ever thought of videotaping yourself, you'll welcome the chapter with tips on how to become camera ready. There's even a chapter on how to deal with the media.

At the end of the book are three appendices. The first one profiles famous speakers--that's where I learned that Bill Gates is married to a Texan, that Madeleine Albright was born in Czechoslovakia, and that Suze Orman is gay. Did you know all that? The second appendix is a chronological history, beginning in 1637, of female speakers and their claims to fame. The third appendix is a handy FAQ that includes a checklist on which your presentation can be rated.

In my work, I examine a lot of new nonfiction and I must say that I was hard-pressed to find much wrong with this book or its approach to public speaking. Jahnke's specialty publisher did an excellent job of producing the paperback, including acquiring a back cover endorsement by Gloria Steinem. This book further validates the fact that our time as female standard bearers has come.

Great book! It is full of very practical tips and guidelines that will make any woman a confident speaker. There was so much that I actually hadnt read elsewhere. I love the fact that she details such simple guidelines as how to stand on stage (the champion stance); how to make eye contact (the 4 box diagram); how to walk on stage (the 3 star diagram). I think it is a must read for any professional (even men).

Perfect for any woman who plans on having career goals that involve getting in front of audiences. This book seems superficially focused at first, but Jahnke does a brilliant job revealing that how one's external posture, apparel, expressions, etc are actually the sounding board of how any person views themselves- and when you don't take care of those details, the results can be destructive to your career. She also gives great outlines of how to structure speeches depending on what your goals are with your audience.

She uses tons of examples throughout political history, and I'll admit I had to use Wikipedia to look up many of her references, but I'm thankful I did. The real life stories of other women making this world a better place will push you past your own comfort zone, and hopefully pursue your own goals and dreams.

This is the best guide I have every read on public speaking. I wish I had read it 20 years ago. This book will give you the confidence to make a presentation to 10 people or a 1000 people, weather you are a man or women it is a must read. Wayne Henry

This was a good read. It gave great advice on public speaking but I would have liked to see more information on day-to-day conversations and professional interviews and commentaries.
