Does your true personality come through when you speak American English?

Hi, it’s Susan with another post featuring techniques you can use to communicate clearly in American English.

Your true personalitypersonality 2

During our coaching session this week my client Julie, shared a valuable insight with me. She said,

“Susan, My true personality doesn’t comes through when I communicate in English. I’m a very dynamic person and I like to take an active role at meetings. When I speak Spanish I can do that. But when I speak English at meetings, I tend to hold back.”

I’ve consistently heard very similar comments from my other coaching clients.

They tell me that they can easily describe their ideas and express themselves when they speak in their native language.

But it’s a challenge for them to express themselves in a clear, dynamic way when they speak American English.

Business leaders in America

But you know, there are many very successful business leaders who are NOT native speakers of American English. These leaders effectively share their ideas every day. And in doing so, they make our world a better place.

These leaders include:

⦿ Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft

⦿ Sundar Pitchai, VP at Google

⦿ Ping Fu, Software Entrepreneur

⦿ Indra Nooyi, CEO at Pepsico

And you can use these leaders as models as you develop your American communication skills.
