5 Forces To Deliver A Leadership Talk That TransformsSep 25, 2022
Business communication is inevitable. But there is a difference in how great leaders and not-so-great leaders communicate, motivate, and inspire their employees. And the results speak their own language.
Some time ago I set myself up for a mission. I wanted to expand how I communicate. I was ready to leave PowerPoint as my trusted partner and step up. I wanted to learn to be on stage with me, myself, my voice, my wisdom, and maybe a few slides underpinning my key messages.
Believing in what you do, the passion to make an impact and the power to speak freely is a leadership asset that wins hearts and moves feet. I wanted to learn the hooks that great leaders like Apple CEO Tim Cook, Former US President Barack Obama, Motivational Speaker and Leadership Coaches Tony Robins, Simon Sinek, and John Maxwell apply that good leaders haven’t yet learned.
I was up for a challenge and invested in private speaking training. Within the first two weeks of my intensive training, my world opened and I got to understand why some talks are powerful and transform and why other talks are flat and non-sticky information. And I guess you want to learn that skill too since you are reading this article.
Let me say this straight away. I am not a communication expert but I have crafted and delivered business communication for more than 20 years. I have also participated in various communication courses but none of them have transformed my life and the way I perform.
BUT the private speaking training, I am currently undertaking, exceeds my expectations of what I am capable of learning and doing differently. And in this edition, I summarise my latest wisdom on the subject.
Here are 5 forces that will get you far if you are preparing to deliver a talk that transforms:
- Find inner peace. Inner peace is essential if you don't want to be nervous.
- Meditate. Your pathway to inner peace is to meditate. This you want to start practicing now as it does take time to find inner peace in a split second
- Stay. When you get stuck, you stay in the tension. Don’t stop and say “I can’t do it”
- Breathwork. Before you go on stage, do your breathwork. This you learn when you meditate. You want to control your breath. Not your breath to control you.
- Rehearse. Rehearse, rehearse, rehearse how to deliver your talk using the tools listed above.
And the bonus force...
- Your leadership mindset. When you prepare for your talk you want to either work with someone who can help you identify your limiting beliefs or you want to work on yourself now so that you at the moment can coach yourself. This I teach and train my clients in and hadn't I transformed how I see the world, I wouldn't have embodied the new tools the way I have.
If you apply the 6 forces and do your homework on elevating your self-awareness you will make more impact than you have ever imagined would be possible.
Rehearse is your way forward. There are no free lunches here. You can rehearse the tools I have shared on your own. You may also sign up with a trainer if you want to fast-track your success. To get maximum results, you want to start with working on yourself. You want to learn to meditate. You want to learn your onw limiting beliefs and how to spot other people's belief patterns. You want to know what energy means and the system to upshift. You want to learn what language means in the context of leadership communication and impact. Summed up, you want to grow your self-awareness so that you effortlessly and with lasting results can step into your greatness of powerful communication.
Mastermind cohorts. On the 26th of October, I'm launching the last Leadership Mastermind cohort this year. It's an exclusive program and the last one where I will teach and train you in essential leadership techniques and systems. I offer 8 seats. If you feel called, DM me and let's jump on a quick call.
More will come. In 2023 I will offer a brand new Leadership Mastermind program with a European retreat where you are get introduced and trained in some of the essential leadership communication tools essential for you to apply if you want to deliver talks that transform. Seats will be limited. This course is not for everybody. DM me if you are called to attend.
Trust yourself in the training process and when you are on stage. You are successful. You can do it. You ARE doing it!
