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.

No word was ever as effective as a rightly timed pause

Of course finding the right words and having a good turn of phrase matter. But remember that your non-verbal communication has 10 times more impact on an audience. Simple words from an invested speaker will always have more effect than selected words from an absent one. To reread: How not to stumble over your words?…

Better to keep your mouth shut…

The fear of being perceived as an imbecile keeps many people from speaking in public, asking questions or sharing their opinions.

The exercise of public speaking involves a lot of stress. And this stress manifests itself in different forms depending on context and personality.

The more structured and rehearsed you are, the more sincere and…

The two most important days in your life are…

Giving meaning, inspiring and sharing your convictions are essential in generating the adhesion and commitment of those listening to you. And it becomes much simpler once you know how to give meaning to your own actions! We hope that 2017 will allow you to discover what drives you, to find the words to express what…

If you have nothing to say, say nothing!

If speaking is indispensable in exercising your leadership, it doesn’t mean you should monopolize it… especially if you have nothing to say. An excellent leadership posture consists of giving others the opportunity to speak. And there are techniques for this too! To reread: How to speak when we have nothing to say?  

By continually trying not to disappoint, we end up no longer surprising anyone

Show me your presentations and I’ll tell you what company you work for! The exercise of presenting is too often the occasion to conform to the customs and traditions of your company, rather than giving substantive meaning to the ideas that you want to convey. We thus see that the standard rules and conventions that…

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?…
