In Speak from the Heart, Emmy Award-winning broadcaster, newspaper columnist, and motivational speaker Steve Adubato reveals the secrets to being a great communicator — with a program that will dramatically change the way you talk, listen, and connect with others.

Steve Adubato's life experiences, both professional and as a husband, son, brother, and father, have taught him invaluable lessons about the power of personal, sincere communication. In Speak from the Heart, he demonstrates that being a truly great communicator is not simply about being articulate or being a "good talker." It is not about fancy visuals and PowerPoint presentations, or hard-core sales pitches, or even who has the most facts, figures, and technical wizardry. What really counts is making an authentic connection with other people that comes not merely from the intellect but from the heart.

If you want to make a lasting impact, Dr. Adubato shows you how to engage people through empathy and understanding, how to be a great listener, and how to make an audience — whether one, one hundred, or one thousand people — care about you and your message. He helps you to rely less on written speeches, teleprompters, and index cards full of too much forgettable information, and learn, instead, how to tell a compelling story and create excitement and enthusiasm. You will learn, for example, how to:

  • Lecture less and engage more
  • Communicate under pressure
  • Make effective use of eye contact
  • Develop a conversational style
  • Inspire in a human, personal way
  • Become comfortable with your core message

Speak from the Heart will not only make it easier for you to communicate your message without being ignored or misunderstood; it will also improve your relationships with other people and help you to become more productive at work — with more satisfaction and less stress.

Written by a man who has trained thousands of professionals in all walks of life, including corporate managers, lawyers, educators, health professionals, salespeople, and customer service reps, Speak from the Heart is for anyone who interacts with others at work, at home, in the community, or at social functions.

Personal message from Steve Adubato…

My experience as a broadcaster, motivational speaker, university instructor, former state legislator, husband, son, brother, and father has taught me invaluable lessons about the power of personal, sincere communication. I've made mistakes and I've learned from them. I've written Speak from the Heart to share these lessons. In this book you will learn that being a truly great communicator is not simply about being articulate or a "good talker." It is not about fancy visuals and PowerPoint. It's not about a hard-core sales pitch. It's not about who has the most facts, figures, and technical wizardry. It's about making a connection with people on a human and personal level. It's about engaging people through empathy and understanding. It's what Rudy Giuliani did in the aftermath of the World Trade Center Disaster. Great communication is also about being a great listener. It's also about conversation, about teamwork, and about face-to-face, one-on-one sharing of information, thoughts, and feelings. It's about who can make an audience care about them and their message and who can find the words that touch - not only the intellect - but the heart.

Using highly personal and relevant anecdotes that disclose my own mistakes, this book will not only make it easier for you to communicate your message without being ignored or misunderstood, it will also improve your relationships with other people, help you become more productive in the workplace, and give you more joy and less stress in all personal interactions. Speak from the Heart will change the way you talk, listen, and connect with others.
