What you say and how you speak can be the distinguishing factor between the ordinary and the extraordinary.   We’ll prepare you for the moments you speak so you’ll achieve better outcomes.

How compatible are you and your audience? It’s important to think about this before speaking to an audience of 1 or 1000.

In order to achieve communication success be certain to establish relational credibility by conveying that you understand & have similar views, values, interests and beliefs.

This co-orientation shows your common ground and sensitivity to their needs.

For example:

While visiting the U.S., Queen Elizabeth attended the Kentucky Derby and was invited to speak to the crowd. But you may be asking what could a queen possibly have in common with an audience of American horse racing enthusiasts? 

HORSES.

She began her speech by relating a story of a similar race in England that she always attended because of her passion for horses and the sport of horse racing.  This disclosure immediately brought a great response from the audience and a round of applause. She immediately established common ground with the crowd and won them over.

How can you establish co-orientation?

  • Identify similar attitudes, beliefs & values
  • Identify common experience
  • Convey these similarities early to build rapport

By implementing co-orientation into your communication scenarios your audience will respond in a favorable way and you will enjoy the results.

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.

Assess your charisma by responding to these questions.  If you don’t like an answer let us know and we’ll coach you for different results!

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.
