Improve Your Speeches

I could have used these three steps to better speeches a few days ago. I’m always looking for techniques to be a better public speaker.

First, step out from behind the podium and choreograph your relationship to the audience.

Second, listen to your audience.

Finally, focus on your emotional intentions for approximately three minutes before important meetings and speeches.

Practice these three shortcuts to effective leadership communications and watch the bar go up — way up — on your performances.

If you’re not thinking about radical innovation right now, you can be sure your competitor is. Lead, follow, or get out of the way has never rang so true.
