2-Minute Tip: Be Vulnerable

 

We often talk about the importance of authenticity as a speaker. Another way to think about it, though, is vulnerability.

 

The benefit of vulnerability as a speaker is that the audience can feel where you are coming from. It’s easier for them to connect with you.

 

And if they feel that stronger sense of connection, they are more likely to pursue the action you are calling them to pursue.

 

Post Tip Discussion: Meet Charles White

 

When I put together an episode, I don’t always know what it’s about. I do my core edit of the conversation where I listen to the whole thing, cut some stuff , and clean up the audio Wile I take notes.

 

Then I look over my notes. Sometimes I sit with it for a day. It’s only then that I realize what my guest and I talked about. Then I can write up my intro and outro comments and start work on the show notes for an episode. That’s my process.

 

And that’s how I came to realize that this week’s episode is all about process. Charles focuses on process in his life.  Process can be quite freeing. Once you have a structure and a way of doing things, suddenly those tasks get a whole lot quicker.

 

Often when we talk about public speaking we don’t think about the process. We think about standing in front of the crowd with some slides.

 

But 90% of the success of a talk is determined before you ever open your mouth. It’s in your preparation and planning. And when your preparation becomes repeatable and duplicatable, you have a process.

 

It’s not as sexy as the roar of the crowd, but the right process can make your life so much easier.
