Speakers, step into the Speaking Red Zone!

You can be an ordinary speaker, or you can stand out.

Making a lasting audience connection doesn't mean you stood on a stage, they listened, then clapped for you when you finished.

I know because I've been immersed and submerged into producing, shooting, editing, directing talent and speakers for over 30 years. I know what connects them to their audience - and I help them do it when asked.

You can't just stand on that stage and expect them to listen. It doesn't work that way.

One of the ways to connect in a BIG way, is to step into the Speaking Red Zone. It's where you can score! It's that area between the stage and the back reaches of an audience, a place where for some reason, most speakers are afraid to go.

It's like they're afriad there's a trap door out there somewhere - one step,  and they think they'll be gone forever. Well, I know the real reason they don't do it. It's that they've been taught not to.

A speaker that wants to connect puts the focus on THEM (the audience) and not themselves. A speaker that wants to connect should be DIVING into that Red Zone. It's closeness, it's power and it's 2-way love.

There is no line, no wall that separates a speaker from the audience. Get into that Zone - and when you do, commit to pulling in every single person in that audience.

Rob "Waldo" Waldman is a member of the Speakers Hall of Fame and understands about commiting - about getting and staying in that Red Zone with his audience. Here's a clip from his YouTube channel - a clip I shot of him here in the Dallas area that should prove to you that what you've been taught is wrong. It's OK to walk past them if you're continuing to engage with them - as long as you're in their ZONE.

Do this as well - I want you to pay attention to the little things in this clip that help solidify the connections he's making. Look for the physical connection Rob makes. The handshake. There's humor. The language he uses - words like "passion" - emotional evocative language, words that mean something personally, like "dad" and "children", "love", "kids" and more. Listen to the visualization techniques. Also, the short and strong sentence construction is important because it makes for an easy and fast focus for the audience.

He does all of that, in the Speaking Red Zone, in a very short amount of time. It's a wonderful confluence of connecting techniques.

Here's the clip.

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.

So what IS an Inside-Out Speaker, Kurt Boxdorfer?

I'm just glad you're asking!

An inside-out speaker is an AMAZING speaker - committed to being intentional, authentic, emotional and memorable. They are selfless, devoted and giving to their audience - always aware of and managing their physical environment along the way. And finally, they're engaged with their "thinking" brain in times of anxiety and stress..

But it takes a plan to get there, and the book, The Inside-Out Speaker lays it all out there in direct, eady-to-understand language.

Having a PLAN is paramount to saving, strengthening and growing your professional speaking career.
