There are some little tricks of the trade you can use when trying to bring readers around to your point of view. And none of them involve dangling a watch in front of their eyes or asking them to stare a spinning, spiraling wheel. Ethos, Pathos, and Logos are rhetorical devices. Ethos is moral character, meaning when ethos is used the writer is trying to persuade the reader that the character is a good guy. Pathos is emotion. It gets the reader to stop thinking and start feeling. Logos means reason. Logos is logic, where all the details come together and make sense.

Ethos, pathos, and logos in public speaking give an important introduction to Aristotle's Rhetoric that we can use to improve the persuasiveness of your presentations and public speaking. Ethos: Personal credibility. We can establish our credibility with good character, expertise, credentials, and qualifications. Ideally, the speaking is a living example of what he or she is speaking about. Pathos: Appeals to the audience's emotion. We can appeal to our audience's emotions through vivid language, metaphors, stories, and real-life examples. Logos: A sound argument supported by evidence We can build a sound argument through high-quality research of facts and statistics and maintain a tight or close relationship between our claim and the evidence we use to support that claim. In Aristotle's Rhetoric book, he discusses these three terms to describe the three primary ways or persuasive appeals or devices we can use to reach audiences and be persuasive. Rhetoric, as an area of study, is the earliest systematic study of communication and public speaking and presentation skills, Alex Lyon's Book: Case Studies in Courageous Communication: https://www.amazon.com/Case-Studies-Courageous-Organizational-Communication/dp/1433131242/ref=tmm_hrd_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1483651791&sr=1-1 Get to know Alex (video): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owjHoxQuKNU Communication Coach, this channel, helps rising leaders like you increase your impact and lead your teams with more excellence.
