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.

In life, nothing is to be feared, everything is to be understood

Do you dread your next speech? Do you not dare intervene in a meeting? Are you unable to ask a question? Are you tired of preparing for an upcoming meeting? And you’re angry about having a few colleagues among the participants? Congratulations you’re stressed! But nothing forces you to have to put up with the…

The only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary

Don’t let yourself be taken by those who give the impression they’re not working, especially in oral communication. The more you progress with method the more you save time in preparation. But if you really need to leave a trace, to sufficiently shed new light on a subject in order to mobilize those listening to…

A man’s character may be learned…

Behind your speech, there is something essential to convey: your intention! Making cold and disembodied speeches will only serve to feed those who doubt your sincerity. By becoming accustomed to qualifying your subject, you will more easily show your opinion and your feelings. By multiplying relevant adjectives, it will be easier to convey the emotions…

Nothing is more difficult than simplicity

When we started out, we used to present the 5 top bogus excuses people give to not use storytelling. The one that came in first place was: “It’s a more complicated technique than the others.” The more we advance in our carriers the more we develop an expertise. But we should not be trapped by…

An entrepreneur is someone who jumps off a cliff…

Rhetoric and eloquence are two essential professional performance tools for those who need to advance their ideas. Agility, apart from being a mode of organization, is first and foremost an individual ability to turn insights, decisions and initiatives into a story worth telling. To reread : The game precedes the rule! Don’t drop your ideas!…

Ask your question, you will be an idiot for a second…

Many interesting questions are never asked because we don’t dare. And it often suits the speaker who sees the upcoming questions as destabilizing risks… That’s too bad because a study has shown that the more questions you get, the more likely it is that your idea will see the light of day!

Listening to others is already answering them

We could opine that listening should be a due, a matter of respect or education. We could then defer responsibility to the audience, wouldn’t that be practical! But this is not real life, even less so in the age of mobile phones, digital communication and social networks. An attentive audience is a conquered one. This…

Someone’s intelligence can be measured…

The exciting thing about public speaking is that no matter how long you prepare, unpredictable things can always happen. And that is exactly the goal of rehearsals! When you are sufficiently prepared to serve the needs of your audience rather than your own purpose, you will no longer be afraid of the unexpected. To reread:…

It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble…

It is impressive to see to what degree our brains can be lazy. Because it sticks to what it already knows, because it rejects what it doesn’t understand, because it prefers routine to curiosity. Understanding your brain better means learning to stop being fooled by your first instincts and getting beyond those feelings to be…
