When Judith Humphrey wakes up every morning, she wonders, 'Who is Taking the Stage today?' Taking the Stage is a program Humphrey created in 2001 that teaches women how to achieve a strong leadership presence every time they communicate.
"It teaches them not to pull back, not to minimize themselves, but to step out into the spotlight, that's why it's called taking the stage, whether that stage is a meeting room, on the telephone, at a podium or simply in a conversational space," Humphrey said.
Hamilton Spectator Review
Book review: Speaking as a Leader
Jay Robb, April 09, 2012
I went to a conference in Washington last month to learn how to write better speeches.
As an added bonus, I got a two-day master class in how to give a great speech. The conference featured keynotes by three seasoned speechwriters who proved they’re as good on the podium as they are with a pen (kudos to Mark Schumann, Justina Chen and Terry Edmonds -- the first African American to serve as a presidential speechwriter).

The Positivity Trap for Leaders and Followers
Donal De Paor, April 9, 2012
If you have ever received feedback that you need to focus on more positive communications I highly recommend Judith Humphrey’s book “Speaking as a leader”. The book gives a lot of excellent practical tips on how to be more effective in presentations and carry yourself as a leader. I will speak to several insights I learned from the book in future posts. In chapter 4 Judith focuses on what she calls the “negativity trap”. I agree with her central point that it is important to be positive. I think that many leaders I observe in politics and business take this advice too far though and lose credibility as a result.
