Leadership
PERSONIFY YOUR PROJECT

Public speaking generally represents a time when we put too much pressure on ourselves: make sure you don’t forget anything, be natural… As if the performance was only based on the controlled image of yourself that you put forth!

In order to be heard, you need to first create confidence-based conditions. That is why true performance is based on your ability to sincerely convey a committed message.

People will never forget how you made them feel

If your goal is to leave a profound impact on your audience, you have no choice; you will have to share something other than figures and charts. The presentations we remember are always the ones that left us feeling strong emotions. To reread: How to give an unforgettable presentation? How can you memorize your presentation?…

There are only two types of speakers in the world…

Don’t forget that it is natural to be nervous in front of an audience. And, in general, those who look comfortable are in fact as stressed as you are. The fear you feel has nothing to do with your ability to perform well when speaking. It is by speaking as often as possible that you…

All speaking engagements are the expression of a leadership style

To speak is to seize power! Whether you’re speaking to your teams, your bosses, clients or investors, they all tacitly accept to be quiet and listen to what you have to say. It doesn’t matter whether you’re happy with your appearance or you have confidence in yourself or you’re scared to death… in the end,…

We have one really effective weapon, and that is laughter

Can I start my presentation by telling a joke? This question comes up frequently. Especially since we frequently read about this type of advice on the web. The problem is that it is the people who already know how to use humor in front of an audience who give this advice! If you start telling…

The reality of the figures doesn’t matter as long as they feel !

We generally have the bad habit of talking to prove that we are right, that we are legitimate, that we have done well… But if those who listen to us, for whatever reason, are distrustful or afraid, we can give them the best demonstration in the world; they will not listen to us! What matters…

It always seems impossible…

Everyone knows what it takes to be a good speaker. But public speaking doesn’t just come from knowledge but from skill: the ability to use our knowledge under stress. That’s why we progress only by repeating and practicing. This way we can adopt new reflexes that allow us to expand our comfort zone and make…

With all due respect to poets, the heart is just a muscle

Indeed, emotions are born in our brain. And the heart, with all due respect to poets and to Blaise Pascal, only responds to the chemical and electrical impulses it sends. The brain is much less mysterious to us today than it was just a few years ago, and emotions are considered a key factor of…

The heart has its reasons, which reason does not know

We always have the reflex to want to demonstrate our point of view or to prove that we are right. But neurocognitive research shows that in the vast majority of cases, our decision-making mechanism is driven more by desire than by reason. When you have ideas you want to promote, stop trying to prove that…

Remember to smile

This quote reminds us immediately of one of the three pillars that drive us: optimism. We are all more or less sensitive to negative emotions. And this sensitivity will gradually build the image that we have of the world. A world that will either become a source of joy or of danger over the course…
