Alex Bering mesmerizes WIN members
Alex Bering, author, coach, and speaker from the Carnegie Training Institute, kept the WIN participants engaged for an hour and a half with stimulating exercises and his insightful commentary. He encouraged everyone to get out of their comfort zone and talk to strangers; stand up in front of an audience and deliver an "elevator speech"; and practice a firm handshake. He quoted Tony Alessandra's Platinum rule, "Treat others they want to be treated." An effective communicator will be able to assess how the person s/he interacts with would like to be treated and treat them accordingly.
A very inspiring and enjoyable presentation!
