Good Speakers Will Offer Additional PerspectivesExceptional good presentation skills
Offer an additional perspective
Enrich the mind of your audience by offering additional perspectives.
Does your speech offer some new insights to the audience? Do you invite them to explore another point of view? Or do you try to force them to accept your point of view? That may lead to even more resistance. A large part of whether or not persuasion is effective is based on the general rapport between you and your audience. If you don’t know them well, it’s imperative to start building this rapport immediately. First, you have to find common ground as soon as possible. Therefore you have to start listening instead of leading. If you can identify ways to connect with your listeners, you can make your speech interesting and useful.
A good strategy for communicating more effectively is to help your audience listen more effectively. To make your message more attractive, you have to be able to understand it from your listeners’ perspective.
Your audience prefers another solution as you do? Present the alternatives to your favorite solution. Invite the audience to explore them together with you. First talk about the pros and then about the cons of that solution. This way they will see you as an expert because you are. Finally, explore your solution with them while using all relevant senses. When they see and feel your arguments themselves and they will make the arguments their own. When your suggestion is it worth you have a high chance that they will support it. And their decision last!
Those who do not speak are not heard and even those who speak up are not always successful. There are a few more steps that need to be mastered.
You want to convince with your message and also as a personality? Then I will help you to prepare your speeches and presentations. You determine the scope. At least I recommend a test run with professional feedback for you and your message. Then you will know how you and your content are perceived, what you should do and what you should leave out, where there is potential. Why do you want to get such helpful feedback so late after your real performance? Then it is too late for adjustments. Benefit from the advantage. My definition of luck: Preparation meets opportunity.
You can best estimate for yourself where the effort is worthwhile in relation to the expected benefit. Here you will find the fees for my support (communication, psychology, language, structure, voice, body language, storytelling, rhetorical means, media such as PowerPoint and Co. etc.)
By the way, many people suffer from such intense stage fright in front of an audience and therefore their performance clearly lags behind their personal possibilities. Too bad, because with my help a performance in a good condition is possible. Just in case...
