Marjorie Saulson talks about “Intuition in Public Speaking and Business Communication” in this episode of the Intuitive Leadership Mastery Podcast.
“To be an effective communicator you need three things that I call, “What, how, and allow,” and the ‘what’ is the message. That comes out of your heart and your mind and your intentions. What is it that you want to communicate? What is important? What do you need to share with people who need to hear what you have to say? That’s the ‘what’. The ‘how’ is how you present it.” – Marjorie Saulson

Marjorie S.: I’m delighted to be here, Michael, thank you so much for inviting me.
Michael Light: You’re welcome. So, why is perfect powerful verbal communication … If I can say it right, the key to being successful in business?
Marjorie S.: Because the only way that you can illicit people to be excited about what you are excited about, and the only way that you can clarify what the mission and the goals are and have a discussion about the best way to strategize and reach them is by talking. You need to be able to communicate clearly. If you can’t do that then the people with whom you are working, or who are working for you, are confused and a confused mind always says, “No, that’s a kind of a sales mantra,” but a confused person doesn’t know what action steps to take, so when you communiclate … Oo! Excuse me. When you communicate, let me get that word out clearly. When you can communicate clearly, you are much more likely to reach the goals that are important to you in your business or in any area of your life.
