You've Got 8 Seconds: Communication Secrets for a Distracted World
By Paul Hellman
You made a great point - but did anybody hear it? Every day at work, people do three things: talk, listen, and pretend to listen. That's not surprising-the average attention span has dropped to 8 seconds. To get heard, says high-stakes communications expert Paul Hellman, you need to focus your message, be slightly different, and deliver with finesse. Through fast, fun, actionable tips, You've Got 8 Seconds explains what works and what doesn't, what's forgettable and what sticks. With stories, scripts, and examples of good and bad messages, the book reveals three main strategies: FOCUS: Design a strong message-then say it in seconds. VARIETY: Make routine information come alive. PRESENCE: Convey confidence and command attention. You'll discover practical techniques, including the Fast-Focus Method(TM) that the author uses with leadership teams; how to stand out in the first seconds of a presentation; and 10 actions that spell executive presence. Whether pitching a project, giving a speech, selling a product, or just writing your next email, with You've Got 8 Seconds you'll get heard, get remembered, and get results.
"Enhanced by actionable techniques and smile-cracking commentary, it's a great field guide for talent development professionals who want to improve their presentations." -- TD magazine
