In Speakership is Leadership, Margaret Watts Romney tackles public communication. Romney discusses expanding the definition of leadership, shifting the focus off you and any insecurities to the audience, and other effective ways of communicating without speaking. The author addresses "speakership" as the way you discuss your passion with people, whether you're arguing a point or feelings about a subject over a lifetime of study and experience, mental and physical reactions to speaking publicly, and exercises to prepare you. In each section, Romney shares her experiences and other successes and challenges and explains a key element needed for more effective communication. She provides questions for reflection, helping readers focus on some areas for improvement and their strengths.

With wise, but practical advice delivered in a way you can understand, Margaret Watts Romney's approach will work for professionals or people who just want to share their ideas more openly. Beginners and seasoned professionals can learn from Romney's work, using skills they didn't know they possessed to turn negative thoughts and preconceived notions about public speaking into positive reactions that work as affirmations. You can refer to particular sections of the book, but it will benefit you to read every word of Romney's informative text. Don't skip the epilogue as it has interesting notes about one of the most famous speeches in American history. With the storytelling strategies, the right skills in your toolbox, and a little personal motivation, Speakership is Leadership can help you learn how to communicate in professional or private settings more confidently and effectively.
