As part of a portfolio and professional development course I presented a slideshow I found on slide share. The lecture centered around 5 ways to get what you want (without turning people off) by learning how to communicate powerfully. #1 learn to negotiate. #2 watch your language. # 3 develop a strong brand and get comfortable promoting it. # 4 look the part. # 5 finding a happy medium. The students were asked to respond to the lecture on this blog. I have also included a short video I found on U-tube (although it’s not the lecture I gave it’s the author Michelle Villalobos).
