Public speaking is about the audience.
Whether speaking in front of a group, a high stakes meeting, or a difficult conversation, we've all faced situations that cause anxiety. Whenever we feel threatened, the lower, primitive brain gets triggered and can hijack the logical brain.
The presenter could have created a word picture, but it wouldn't have been as memorable or as poignant as a physical prop. The audience was moved and broke into applause.
If you sound scripted or slick, your audience will begin to distrust you or your message. In these difficult and uncertain times, the ability to build and communicate trust is absolutely critical.
Even the most seasoned public speakers can be at risk if they don't know how to recognize the danger signals.
There's a secret that professional speakers know but we rarely hear about it. The secret trickles out in overheard statements.
High pressure situations don't have to derail your presentation.
The attendees left with new ideas, new technology, and new friends. The future looks exciting.. And the future is now!
How often has this scenario played out? It could be an executive meeting, a sales, call, or a group interview. The presenter looked the part, knew the content, but it was the wrong context.
Where is the dividing line between passion that conveys gravitas and passion that results in a loss of credibility?
Talk facts and the audience may nod. Tell a story and they'll stand and cheer.
Even the most professional women may encounter unwanted advances when least expected. The best defense is to have a strategy.
This month I got to hear my favorite shark, Daymond John. He kicked off the C-Suite Advisors Network NYC Thought Summit on December 5th where I had the honor of speaking about Perfecting Your Presence.
If you're ready to conquer fear of public speaking (and even if you're not) here are 3 strategies that will help you to appear confident
Can you hear me now? How often have you said that to somebody while talking on your phone? Suddenly there is silence and the call drops. You wonder what happened.
Are you satisfied with your life? It's National Evaluate Your Life Day and what good timing. It's the fourth quarter of the year and there's still time to meet your communication goals.
When it comes to communication, the meta message is in the tone and not in the words. Uptalk communicates a lack of conviction and confidence and can taint a public speaker's brand.
One night out of desperation, I said, "God, I surrender. Whatever you want me to do, I'll do. Just get me out of here."
