Publisher's Summary

People are drawn to, and influenced by, leaders who communicate authentically, connect with people, and have immediate impact. So how do you become one? How can you learn to “own the room?” This book will help you develop your leadership presence. The authors offer a simple and compelling framework as well as practices for developing your "signature voice." Wherever you sit in an organization, you can develop presence if you are able to do two things well: demonstrate your authentic value and distinction; and connect to others in a positive way. Leaders who are able to be authentic while connecting with and impacting others have what the authors call a signature voice - a means of self-expression that is uniquely and distinctly your own. Once you embrace and express this invaluable skill, you won’t believe the tremendous impact you can have on those around you. Filled with real-life stories and examples, Own the Room will demystify the notion of presence and provide practical advice on how you can develop it.


What the Critics Say

"Own the Room is a must-read for all emerging and experienced leaders who aspire to authentically connect with others, forge relationships, and increase their influence. The authors have provided a practical roadmap and toolkit for building leadership presence from the inside out.” (Jane Brock-Wilson, Managing Director, Berkshire Partners)

What would have made Own the Room better?

Provide a pdf for reference, or provide me the opportunity to buy the book / audio together. Paying for both separately is too expensive and talking it out is not effective.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

WARNING: Not suitable for an audible book

What disappointed you about Own the Room?

The book was not written to be listened to. There are numerous bullet point lists, partial phrases and diagrams that do not make sense when read aloud. I am interested in the content and plan to purchase the kindle version.

Any additional comments?

Audible seriously considering retracting this book.
