The Power of Crystal-Clear Communication, with Sheryl Roush

Episode 147

Meet Sheryl Roush, CEO of Sparkle Presentations, author, coach, and sought-after speaker. But she wasn't always so confident and poised taking the stage. When she was younger, she struggled with her shyness and it wasn’t until she accompanied her mother on Avon sales calls and joined Toastmasters that she learned to tame the butterflies in her stomach to “fly in formation” and truly shine as a speaker.

Now, Sheryl uses her skills to teach others the power and potential of crystal-clear communication. She understands that effective communication requires more than just the ability to speak well. To truly connect with others, we need to meet them where they are. Every person learns and speaks in their own unique style, and it's up to us to tap into that style if we want to get our message across.

So how do we tap into our friends, colleagues, and family members' communication style? Sheryl uses Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligences in her presentations to illustrate the nuances of communication and how we interpret information. By tailoring our message to someone’s individual communication style, we can create a powerful connection that transcends words and touches others on a deeper level.

In this episode, Sheryl discusses the Seven Multiple Intelligences in detail:

  • [04:24]: #1 – Linguistic
  • [06:52]: #2 – Mathematical
  • [08:43]: #3 – Visual
  • [11:09]: #4 – Musical
  • [13:15]: #5 – Kinesthetic
  • [18:28]: #6 – Interpersonal
  • [20:15]: #7 – Introspective

As leaders, understanding the unique communication and learning preferences of others is crucial. They encompass the various ways people process and interpret information. By tuning into an individual's language, we can gain valuable insights into their communication style and build interpersonal trust by mirroring it.
