A Live & Online Broadcast

For Beyond 50's "Personal Growth" talks, listen to an interview with Teresa Rogers.  She'll talk about her family life in rural Kentucky. Even though her family was poor and she was riased with an abusive alcoholic father, her mother's love, positive attitude in the face of adversity and words of wisdom encouraged her to aim high and never give up. She'll talk candidly about living with an alcoholic father - from being ridiculed and physically abused by her dad to a harrowing description of the night Rogers and her mother were nearly shot by her alcohol-fueled father they they tried to flee his rage.

Reading Presidential Candidates
For Beyond 50's "Personal Growth" talks, listen to an interview with Patti Wood on Thursday, Nov. 1 at 10 a.m. (PT)/1 p.m. (ET).  She is the gold standard of body language experts.  With the national election coming up, you'll learn about the body language of President Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney to find out if they are bending or speaking their truth.  Wood distills the science on how we form "SNAP" impressions into information we can use every day - on job interviews and sales calls, while meeting in person or on, during telephone calls or Skype conversations.

                                Patti Wood Offers Some Suggestions for President Obama:

1.     I suggest he come out strong, warm and charismatic before he begins speaking and make a strong positive first statement before he responds to the first questions.

2.     I would coach him and say, “President Obama, smile more as you make strong positive statements. When you speak about how great and hardworking Americans are and what this country is and has become. “

3.       He needs to relax his voice so he can use it to make us feel confident in him.

4.       He had great positive emotional moments and gestures in his DNC speech. He needs to pull some of that emotion and passion into the debates.

5.       He needs to gesture upwards above the waist as he speaks about where we can go to symbolically show he wants and can bring us joy and hope.

6.       He also needs and look up and out to the future.

                                    Patti Wood Offers Some Suggestions for Mitt Romney:
 1.       The single most important piece of advice for Governor Romney is to show genuine warm emotion in his voice and body language.

2.       Governor Romney should move more to illustrate what he is saying so that we feel he is speaking sincerely.

3.       Gesture more over all. He can move and he needs to have more animated and passionate emotional movement, facial and vocal expression.

4.       He needs to be present in the moment and connect more with the audience.

5.       He needs to look out at everyone and then speak using the power of the pause.

6.       Make sure his emotions and his nonverbal messages are in sync.

7.       Be likable – Let his emotions show.

8.     He needs to show nonverbally he is not keeping anything from us.
