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.

Don’t let yourself be dominated anymore

There’s an obvious parallel between “words” and “power.”  Naturally, the person speaking acts as a guide. We most often summarize it in one sentence: “Any public speaking is the expression of leadership.” This explains why it is so difficult to speak in front of an audience that is in a hierarchy above you, or to…

How to control your emotions?

Public speaking terrifies many of us. Yet in fact, the act of speaking is rarely the real problem. However, it is undeniable that it fosters situations that we try to avoid every day: Making mistakes in front of others, not being liked, being judged, being challenged, being mocked, showing weakness, not being up to the…

3 exercises to escape from stress

A few weeks ago we saw that stress has different ways of revealing itself. When one experiences a stressful situation, the first reaction is to get out of the situation. But this is not always possible. It is often much more effective to deal directly with our stressful state, that is to say, our behavior…

Rehearsing or spontaneity?

When we advise rehearsing before each presentation, people regularly express concerns about the risk of losing their spontaneity. There is indeed a real danger, after having rehearsed a message too much, of being more focused on the content of the speech itself, rather than on communicating it to the audience. The speaker feels stuck in…

Identify stress in yourself and others!

Stress response mechanisms enable us to adopt the best behavior possible when faced with a life threatening danger. Knowing that our species appeared about 200,000 years ago, it is clear that the dangers we face today are not at all related to those for which we were formed. It is considered that 90% of the…

The 3 strategies to create desire

If public speaking is stressful for most of us there are however some presentations where the stakes are clearly higher than others. Whether it’s recommendations, a pitch session or more generally any sort of presentation with the aim of selling an idea, the audience has real life or death power on the financing or implementation…

What to do when you don’t believe?

It’s always amusing to say to yourself, when an idea sees the light and whether in the end it’s a great success or a terrible failure, that there is always one person that doesn’t believe it! It has happened to all of us to find ourselves in the position of someone who doesn’t believe, doesn’t…

Are spelling mistakes a serious problem?

Having let slip between these lines some beautiful typos, we thought it might be interesting to squarely address the question: is it so bad to make mistakes? It will be fun to leave some suspense before answering since the subject often attracts a lot of animosity. Mistakes are obviously an obstacle to effective communication. But,…

How to be sincere?

We have already addressed the question “how to gain the audience’s trust?”. Sincerity is one of the three pillars of this trust; because it determines the value that the audience gives to the remarks of the speaker. We are all equipped with a super powerful sincerity detector. When someone addresses us, we can track all…
