How will improving my vocabulary benefit me?
Scientists have been studying vocabulary, communication skills and success for over a century. These are just a few of the effects improving your vocabulary has been proven to have:
- A study conducted by Douglas Bors and Tonya Stokes in 1999 found that having more words at your disposal allows you to think faster, giving you the power to contribute more great ideas and insights - and discover more solutions - than ever before
- Knowing what you want to say, and how best to express it, gives you a new confidence that's immediately noticed
- As you powerfully and precisely express your ideas they begin to resonate with more people, and you find them being remembered and acted upon
- As your ideas are acted upon, your colleagues begin to respect your capabilities and look to you for leadership and guidance
- The Bors/Stokes study also found that you'll comprehend the things you read better and faster , allowing you to immediately glean vital information (that others may miss) from reports, memos, and research materials
- Your written communications - emails, memos, reports, and letters - will come together faster and easier , and will pack a persuasive punch that gets you noticed
- Your colleagues and superiors will begin to perceive you as more intelligent (vocabulary is how most people make that determination) and skilled at your job
- Since Vocabulary is the crux of all IQ tests, your IQ will naturally increase. In other words, you won't just appear smarter, you will be!
Why choose Executive Vocabulary over other vocabulary building programs?
Executive Vocabulary is the ONLY vocabulary program designed specifically to advance your career. Our number #1 goal is to help you quickly and easily master the vocabulary words that top executives and leaders use to communicate at the highest level of success.
We achieve this with...
1. Precise Word Selection: Our team of business communication experts invested thousands of hours selecting only the words that will dramatically impact your life and career.
- Carefully culled words from thousands of business documents and news articles.
- Recorded presentations of top executives and business professionals in virtually every industry.
- Listened to business professionals, politicians, television journalists and other master communicators.
- Verified that all of these Power Words are consistently used throughout leading business and news publications such as the Wall Street Journal, Business Week, Time, and Newsweek.
- Finally, we ran every single word through a proprietary algorithm that consistently separates true Power Words from other words that are close but still miss the target.
We only selected words that successful people use to communicate at a higher level. These are the words you need to know if you want a seat at the table with the executives and decision makers at your company.
2. Superior Teaching Methods: It's important to remember that learning vocabulary, as an adult is very different than when you were in school. Simply memorizing synonyms and definitions won't cut it anymore. You need to know a word completely, so it is a natural expression when you use it. If you think about it...learning new vocabulary words is similar to learning a new language, and that's why we have employed some the same vocabulary training methods used by highly effective foreign language programs.
Our Proven Systematic Approach
- We start with a clear, concise definition written exclusively for this program so that the word's meaning is crystal clear. But even though most other programs stop there, with Executive Vocabulary , that's only the beginning...*
- Next, we tell you where, when and how the word is used in today's business and real world communication. If words are tools, this is your instruction manual. As you listen to each lesson, you'll begin to intuitively understand exactly when it's appropriate to use each Power Word - and you'll never have to fear that you are using it incorrectly.
- Then we provide up to four usage examples. Instead of just one or two sentences that leave you guessing or confused, Executive Vocabulary gives you several real-life examples of the words in action, pulled straight from leading news and business publications - so the examples are relevant to your everyday experience.
- Finally, we test your recall to drive the Power Words home and guarantee these words become a permanent part of your active vocabulary.*
Executive Vocabulary is a complete "surround sound" learning program with audio lessons and a supplemental workbook.
