Consultant helps execs speak and write better

MINNEAPOLIS - At a recent workshop she led for a senior business executive and his direct staff, Melissa DeLay gave her standard admonition not to shout or use foul language when talking with colleagues. "What if the business is on fire?" the executive asked. No, she replied, not unless it is literally on fire. "If your room is in flames, you may slam your fist and yell at your employees and they will thank you for the rest of their lives that you just saved them," DeLay told him.

She guides them through conflicting forces: the demands for authenticity, sensitivities around race and gender, reflexive overpromising in good times and clamming up in bad, the perils of social media - and of PowerPoint.
