Don't Let The Dog Walk You!

From a recent Rockwall, TX event.

I wanted to start by asking you guys a question. By a show of hands, who feels like they're really and truly being themselves when they're up here speaking? And how many of you feel like you're a square peg trying to fit into a round hole - trying to mold yourselves into someone that you're not? 
 
Now, I don't know about you, but I love being around, talking to and especially, LISTENING - to REAL PEOPLE. They make me feel good  - because I KNOW that they're guided by how they feel and especially how they make their audience feel. Not by techniques.
 
In fact, what I've learned in my business is that BEING REAL is just one of the key differences between speakers that connect with an audience and those that speak to give a speech.
 
Right now I'd like to share 3 key drivers of what I call an inside out speaker.- a speaker that connects with feeling and less by technique.
 
First are the Intentions - you have to ask yourself if you're willing to give and take real and qualified constructive communication instead of enabling, supportive communication.
 
The truth is that if you're not willing to ditch the giving or taking of supportive communication, then you're in big trouble as a connector.
 
Supportive communication may feel good, but it's often fake. It's the intentional communication - those meaningful conversations - that help you connect and be better.
 
A second key is Authenticity, it's bringing the inside YOU to your audience. The fact is that you've spent a lifetime being you, so why change that? Be an originator and not an imitator
 
I know that I can't remember a joke to save my life, but I do know that it's hard for me to be fake - and even harder to tell a lie. I'm not a salesman. So, I have to learn to use those unique qualities – these SUPER SPEAKING POWERS that I have - to build those connecting bridges to you guys. 
 
Now the 3rd area that's so often missing with speakers is Emotionalism. You have to ask yourself if you're willing to get out of your comfort zone, because that's how you'll create lasting memories. The kind that get you invited back again and again as an amateur and professional speaker.
 
So the takeaway is that If you don't make strong memories with your audience, you'll be forgotten. And no one wants to be forgotten, especially a speaker.
 
The best connector I've seen and heard in my life is an ex-fighter pilot and Hall of Fame speaker named Rob “Waldo” Waldman. Waldo does everything right, including having his audience fly jets from their chairs. What he's really doing is commiting 100% to them. 
 
Fortunately for me, after reading my book, he offered to endorse it, and here's what he wrote.
 
"A breath of fresh air in a speaker training world full of the same old speaker techniques, I definitely will recommend this book to any speaker looking to elevate their presence and performance on stage."
 
So commit to being an Inside-Out Soeaker. When you're speaking, lead with your feelings and not with technique. Don't let the dog walk you.
