We all love to "use" the words communication skills and support them with words like authentic, empowered, and genuine, but do we live them? I have used them myself. We do a lot of selling with these words, but we tend to overlook are the actual skills that one must possess to be a great communicator. Do you know how you're perceived? What kind of energy do you project? Can you change it in an instant? Are you comfortable in your own skin? Don't laugh, it's at the core of a solid communicator. When you speak are the meaning of the words expressed in your face and body? The ultimate challenge for any great communicator is how to cause people to feel something, to have an experience. A confident, inspired and creative communicator will find success rooted in their ability to express their life force, conveying thoughts, feelings and emotions so that others are moved by them.

Trained in psychology, she has more than 30 years' experience in her field as an acclaimed national speaker, trainer, coach and author. During her tenure at City College of San Francisco, which has arguably the most diverse population of any college in the United States, she rose to the challenge of helping people connect and communicate across differences. Before her early “retirement”, she not only taught psychology, but also provided training for major organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area on leadership, teambuilding, stress management, communication and conflict, and gender issues. During those training sessions, she honed the skills necessary to make sure that all participants were comfortable contributing to the interaction. After retirement, she wrote The Confident Introvert, written to help introverts, who are as much as 51% of the population, thrive in a culture that idealizes extroversion. She then realized that many leaders have no idea how they much they are alienating what she calls the “quietly brilliant” nor how much stress these individuals suffer in a rapidly-paced, outgoing workplace, and she returned to speaking and training to help introverts and extroverts connect and communicate.
