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.

We often meet our destiny on the paths we take to avoid it

Many of you avoid speaking in public whenever you can. Because it’s petrifying, because it makes you feel sick, because you’re embarrassed, because you don’t like it… among you there is an incalculable pool of talents and project leaders, who just need to be identified, trained and motivated to take your place and make your…

Impose your luck, embrace your happiness…

If you have stage fright, there is a good chance that you’ll have for life. But this does not mean that public speaking is not for you; quite the contrary. Breathing and vocal techniques will help you be more serene. And then you’ll have to find motivation; an authentic source of pleasure, which will ultimately…

An improvised speech has been rehearsed at least three times

We have already written about it: rehearsing is an enormous factor of success. Improvisation consists mainly of structuring your thoughts around strong ideas that have already been developed. The more you rehearse, the more you’ll anchor your key messages and the more responsive and focused you will be to deal with what is really important:…

The sale begins when the client says “no”

You can run all the change management projects you want, nothing will happen if you don’t trigger the change. To do this, there’s nothing better than a founding, inspiring and committed speech, which clearly expresses the problems you will solve, without neglecting to take into account the resistance you will provoke. To reread: The TED…

People don’t buy what you do…

The more you unite people around your convictions, what inspires you, the purpose of your presence and your commitment, the more they will be willing to follow you… and secondarily buy what you have to sell. It is time to answer this question: why do I get up in the morning? To reread: Develop your…

That which is well thought up is clearly stated…

One of the essential dimensions of your leadership is the ability to clarify, simplify and make things understandable to everyone. Conversely, if you express yourself without making the effort to clarify, people will think at best that you didn’t work enough, or at worst that your ideas are of no interest! To reread: To speak…

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. This accentuates the responsibility of managers to allow people to express themselves openly, and to be attentive to all the great ideas that churn in the minds of those who don’t dare speak out.

I learned that courage was not the absence of fear…

The fear of speaking in public concerns practically everyone. Those who think that it will pass are mistaken; those who say you can get rid of it are lying to you. On the other hand, this fear can be a blessing, since adrenaline greatly increases your ability to observe and react. Still, you will have…
