A major article in Boston Magazine by Andy Kroll focuses on the reality that high-profile Elizabeth Warren is not loveable.
That might have been part of what deep-sixed Hillary Clinton. So, this is a serious matter.
Warren is up for re-election in Massachusetts. According to the January WBUR poll, only 44% think she should hold onto that big job of U.S. Senator. Without re-election, Warren loses her platform.
Sure, she could repurpose herself in a feminist cause or a liberal think tank. But, that would be small potatoes compared to being in the U.S. Senate in the Trump Administration.
It's obvious what Warren is doing it all wrong. This is an era in which the public demands authenticity. That, as Kroll points out, Warren isn't In her public speaking.
Incapable of a conversation in the sense of give-and-take, she continually delivers a stump speech. That is, an intense monologue. Moreover, she doesn't seem to know how to listen.
None of this is a surprise, really. She had been trained as a lawyer. From the get-go, lawyers learn the craft of verbal compact. After all, the legal system is adversarial (with the exception of mediation practices). That's hard to unlearn.
On LinkedIn Updates, GE Vice Chairperson Beth Comstock crusades for unlearning. Most of us who have survived the disruptions in business triggered by digital have already done that: Ditch about 95% of all the best practices experts, clients and bosses hammered into us back in the 20th century.
Warren can unlearn what she needs to from a speech coach or by enrolling in a Dale Carnegie introductory public speaking course. I did the latter as the world of business that I had known imploded at the turn of the century.
