If you are in middle management, to get anything done you must present your ideas to decision makers, and those presentations can be brutal. The stakes are high—one presentation can make or break a career—but the rules are utterly unclear. Tactics and techniques that work well with peers, subordinates, and immediate supervisors can actually work against you when presenting up the chain.
Speaking Up is an indispensable resource for anyone who needs to know how to present to those at the highest levels. Psychologist and coach Frederick Gilbert offers revelatory insights into the minds of the men and women at the top—information that is crucial to understanding what they’re looking for from presenters. Based on ten years of research and hundreds of interviews, Speaking Up features extensive comments from executives explaining exactly what they want and don’t want in a presentation.
This Enhanced Edition has 48 minutes of video footage excerpted from the Speaking Up Virtual Workshop, an elite online training course that typically costs $395. The videos in this book show real-life CEOs (not actors) heckling or otherwise impeding hapless presenters. The simulated experience of presenting to the C-Suite and encountering common problems is invaluable. It will help any presenter who needs to know what to expect—and how to prepare—for their next C-level presentation.
"There are two times when you are alone in this life: one is when you die, and the other is when you present to senior management."—Rick Wallace, CEO, KLA-Tencor
You can cut years off your leadership learning curve by applying these skills."--from the foreword by Scott McNealy, Founder band former CEO of Sun Microsystems and Chairman of Wayin

I get bullied a lot, for many reasons. I am the shortest person in my grade, I have glasses, and everyone thinks that my sense of fashion is utterly horrible. Just today, a girl that I don't even know walked up to me and said," Nice clothes, shorty." After that she snorted, and all of her followers laughed with her. Luckily, my 2 friends are always beside me, to cheer me up. They know what it feels like to be bullied, because one is very, very tall, and the other is a little overweight. <p> To all: Dont go too hard on yourselfs.- Teagan (( Post this pretty please!))Was this review helpful?

My close friend Alice was nice to everyone. She was on the swim team wore cute clothes, and was a freshman in high school. But she also got bullied... A LOT! People told her se was ugly, stupid, and that she should just go kill herself. So she did. We were told that she hung herself last night, and she was only 15... r.i.p.
