Using your biological style on stage - public-speaking


We were both speakers at the same conference presenting on the same day-but what a difference. I am tall, while she's short. I am a attractive speaker-I draw colonize in with stories and examples. She's a dynamic speaker- humorous and vivacious. We both were hits-the interview loved us.

How could we be so atypical onstage but the same in capturing the audience's attention? Each of us was authentic and real on stage. Audiences know when a amplifier is "pretending" and they know when a amplifier is "real. "

Have you ever been to a party and you met a big name who seemed to be putting on a front and not being real with you? Your feeling told you amazing was wrong, even if you weren't sure what it was. Audiences are the same. Their intuition, collectively, tells them that a bit isn't right with the speaker.

Why do associates feel the need to be a big name other than who they exceedingly are? Since they aren't comfortable in their own skin. For some reason, they are anxious that who they exceedingly are isn't good adequate so they try to be a big name else.

Let me give you an example. If I tried to be funny, I would end up with mud on my face. Worse yet, the listeners might start throwing tomatoes at me! I must agree to that I will never be known as a humorist.

That is not to say I don't have humor, it's just that my humor is the biological evolution of effective a story, then generous a twist at the end that is assorted than what they are expecting.

If I jumped about stage, as this diminutive, 5"2", 102 pound woman did, I would look like an elephant demanding to dance. It is not that I am as big as an elephant, it is just I'm centered and speak from a arrange of confidence and strength. That is my style and what I stay true to doing.

On the other hand, she would have looked as if she were in a straightjacket if she hadn't gestured frequently with her hands. Her current was to laugh at her own jokes, and then the listeners followed her lead. She was having fun and that enthusiasm was contagious.

Each of us had a atypical style. What is your accepted style? What are you assured in portraying to your audience? What are your best attributes and strengths? What will the addressees love about you?

As a speaker, each was inquisitive to hear the other's presentation and we both "analyzed" what the other was doing while she was on stage. We can at all times learn from others-both what we do well and what we can improve.

Tony Robbins, one of my mentors, states that each character we meet knows more than us about some equipment and we know more than them about other things. With that in mind, I listened to my colleague speak asking what I could learn from her presentation.

More than anything, I academic that by being comfortable with yourself, assured in your topic, and creative in your message-you will "wow" your audience, at all your style.
