2-Minute Tip: Be Authentic
Present in a way that is true to yourself. Your content needs to resonate with you first, or it won’t resonate with your audience. When you can share a message that you are on board with, you can convincingly tell your story and you have the best opportunity to move your audience to take the action you want them to take. And isn’t that the point of all this?
'Every organization has its own culture. And most of that culture is a subset of the DNA of the founder -- of the entrepreneur that launched it no matter how many years ago that was.' -- @evankubicek #publicspeaking Click To Tweet
Post Tip Discussion
A lot of my guests appear on other podcasts — shocking, I know. Every show and host has their own perspective and the conversations are often unique. A couple months ago. I listened to some other shows an upcoming guest had been on, and I realized I needed to up my game and energy level to impress the guest. So I tried.
And it went — okay. The guest was happy, and after editing the episode was solid. But it wasn’t as good as it should have been, and I felt it at the time. And I was a little embarrassed at the end because I knew I didn’t do as well as I could have. Because I wasn’t myself.
I share this story because Evan Kubicek, AKA Coach K, is my guest this week, and fortunately, I was myself for this one.
Obviously we talk about speaking on this episode, and we also talk about sales and marketing. The focus of our conversation, though is on temperament and being authentic to who you are.
