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.

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…

Everyone knows what is needed to win…

It is always exhilarating to have an intuition, play with it and suddenly feel an idea emerging from it that makes sense, that makes everything seem obvious, to the point of being surprised that no one had thought of it before. But as we pointed out in 2017, this is not enough. A strategy, a…

Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear…

Stage fright comes mainly from fear of being wrongly judged or misunderstood. But a good speaker is, on the contrary, the one who manages to forget about himself and rather, takes car of his audience. His objective is not that everything goes well, but to inspire, guide and protect those who are listening. To reread:…

If everything is under control, it’s because you’re not going fast enough!

By wanting to control everything, we lose in performance. In formula one racing, the goal is to always go faster. In speaking, it means letting go in order to be fully at the service of your message. It is not a question of putting yourself in danger or say anything that comes into your head,…

Everything has to change so that nothing changes

Without a context, it is difficult to say if the phrase by Lampedusa is the expression of a manipulation or one of resignation! But it gives us the opportunity for an important reminder: to get your teams moving, you will have to get up, look them in the eye and tell them the story they…

When we realize that we risk nothing on stage…

We are often asked if “it helps to do theater!” Of course it provides a reassuring technical base. But more importantly, what is formative is being faced with stage fright, because we learn to deal with it. We understand that it’s useless to wait for it to pass. And we discover, performance after performance, that…

Success is the ability to go from one failure to another…

The more structured a company is, the longer and more complicated it is to expose a new idea. It is difficult to make your voice heard; you have to convince, stand out and find the right people… In the race for innovation, the optimist has a decisive advantage: his inexhaustible capacity to think that everything…

Training doesn’t make perfect…

In theatre, we don’t rehearse to be good for the next performance. We rehearse to be good in any situation, for every performance, whether we’re in shape or not, whether we like our stage partner or not! The same goes for any speaking engagement. A rehearsal is not meant to be effective just once but…
