BECOMING a charismatic speaker.
We often think that certain people just have the magic. They are super charismatic. People want to be close to them, do business with them and spend time with them. (We often can listen for long periods of time to charismatic speakers).
We feel that they are born with it and that it is just reserved for the happy few.
But is this 100% true?
Or can everybody get a bit of stardust when we present?
I think we can all attain it.
I have noticed over a period of more than 10 years training, that the participants that had this magic, where not especially attractive, experienced (seniors), had good reputations or were extraverts.
But what they did have in common, was that they managed to be 100% present when they spoke.
And real presence makes your speaking instantaneously powerful and creates a strong connection to your audience. All in an almost effortless manner. Hello charisma! Hello magnetism.
This is super attractive for an audience.
You will nail it with your audience when you can attain that. Come across as strong and open/benevolent at the same time.
And you do not have to be as handsome as Beyonce, have to have a reputation like the Dalai Lama or have to have the life wisdom of Michelle Obama.
What you do need is:
- Knowing how to prepare your presentation, so you can be really present when you present.“Presenting is preparing and letting go”.
- Learn golden knowledge on presenting. How can you easily keep your audience on board and tuned in? What does your audience need from you? What does your body language portray? What is your presence like?
- Learn to have the proper mindset. A mindset that keeps you in the present when you speak, instead of pulling you out of it.
