People often get in their own way when it comes to public speaking. In this video, learn how to get out of your own head and have direction.
- What often keeps us from being a confident communicator … is that we get in the way of ourselves. … Oftentimes when I coach people after they're done speaking, … I ask them whether they felt connected to me … and/or others in the room, … or were they just hurling words at people, … or a combination of both. … What I mostly hear back is hurling. … People feel themselves hurling words … because they are so deep inside their own head, … it's almost as if they're talking to themselves. … Well after training thousands of people … to be confident communicators, … I can tell you that the problem … is people fall into what I call the endless loop trap. … The endless loop trap is where people … keep repeating the same relatively ineffective patterns … of behavior in the way they communicate. … What they do is toss information at people … in a detached, disconnected manner. … The endless loop trap is essentially … a one-way communication, … most of it taking place in our head. … And that's a sure fire way to lose the audience's attention …
