Like competence and charisma, a strong communicator recognizes that character impacts an audience’s perception of them. It’s an important component, especially if your audience doesn’t know you very well.

How’s your character level?

  • Are you honest and open?
  • Do you know how true, fair & competent the information you are communicating is?
  • Do you have the listener’s best interest in mind? 
  • Do you have an understanding of other values & traditions? 

After answering these questions, you may be wondering how you can create a perception of trust with your audience who may or may not know your character.

These 3 qualities will help you to build and define your character with others:

  1. Fairness. Show your impartiality by being truthful and delivering accurate information. Make sure you convey that your sources are solid and trustworthy.
  2. Respect.  Refrain from arrogance. An audience who perceives you as a know-it-all will immediately question or deny your credibility and may find you untrustworthy. Showing respect earns trust.
  3. Understanding. Know your audience and understand their needs. If you’re too radical, innovative or overlook their traditions, trust will be lacking. Showing them that you understand their values will demonstrate fairness on your part and will evoke trust.
Want to put all of these qualities together and impact your personal and professional relationships? Reply below and we can get started.  Helping you clearly communicate your character to others is rewarding to you and to us!

Do you have charisma? Do you have it when you speak? And why is it so important?

Speakers who are enthusiastic, dynamic and really interested in their topics are generally regarded as trustworthy, competent and friendly. Audiences respond better to a lively speaker rather than a monotonous one. Plus, people think dull, dry speakers are boring.

While speaking:

  • Do you show genuine enthusiasm for your topic?
  • Are you monotonous or flat in your vocal tone?
  • Do you look directly at the audience or people you’re speaking to during your speech or presentation?
  • Do you gesture with your hands or have good body language?
  • Do you motivate the audience with the words you use and the way you deliver them?

By demonstrating charisma in speaking scenarios you’ll enhance your credibility and improve desired outcomes.
