It is said that “Actions speak louder than words”, this idea rings especially true when presenting on stage. One study performed by Albert Mehrabian concluded that words make up only about 7% of our over all communication, 38% is tonality and 55% is body language. Most speakers however, do only that — speak. By only using words, you loose 93% of your communication ability. Our bodies are one of the most powerful tools that we can use to communicate our message, so how can we use them effectively? — Through Full Body Communication.This is utilizing every facial expression and motion to its full potential. By weaving full body communication into your presentation, you not only mesmerize and captivate, you also engage every learning style so that your message is fully absorbed by each and every member of your audience.
Tonality plays a large role in engaging your audience and keeping their attention for long periods of time. As previously mentioned, 38% of over-all communication is tonality. When used effectively, tonality can enroll and move an audience in ways which words alone cannot do. For this section, we model Martin Luther King Jr. and his speech — ‘I Have A Dream’. This speech has been called one of the greatest of all time, when given, it moved an entire nation into action and continues to inspire and uplift millions. King was a master of using contrast, cadence and his full vocal range to evoke emotions. When you can unlock your tonality and weave it in with the rest of your presentation, you are well on your way to unleashing 100% of your communication ability.
When first starting out, many speakers collide with the problem of having an incredible amount of valuable content to share, without a proven structuring methodology to ensure the content is conveyed in the most effective way possible. Another issue commonly faced is having to change a presentation at the last moment to flow with time fluctuations – whether that be shortening or lengthening – it can be very stressful if the right system is not in place.
Through our experience, we have created a unique content blocking system that has been proven to engage, qualify and impact your audience within a flexible template that allows one to easily add or remove content without impacting the flow of the presentation. This system is taught and trained throughout the course to make proper content blocking not only easy, but automatic.
The Rock Star is all about building a powerful stage presence. They are confident, powerful and ready to put on a show. The Rock Star uses massive motions to enhance their performance and play to a 1,000 person audience. The idea of being nervous on stage doesn’t even occur to The Rock Star, they know that the 1,000s of people in their audience are there for no other reason than to see ‘Me’. The Rock Star plays and connects with each member of their audience and keeps them all enrolled throughout the entire performance. Madonna, Bon Jovi, KISS, Lady GaGa are all great examples of The Rock Star mentality.
The stage is a blank canvas on which we, as speakers, can paint anything we choose. Whether we are telling a story or ingraining a lesson into the minds of our audience; when one knows how to use the stage effectively, the outcome can be magical. There are 5 types of stage anchoring:
- Timeline – Past, present and future
- Ordinal – A list or order of points
- Regional – Specific emotions or lessons tied to various regions
- Interactive – Motions are used to create and interact with objects
- Multi-stage – The stage is reset and re-anchored multiple times
Each type has it’s own unique purpose and when used properly, allows your message to be absorbed and retained by your audience on a profound level; the lessons can then be easily recalled by moving or referring to a section of the stage that has been anchored to a lesson or point.
Group Dynamics are the mechanics of how one facilitates their interaction with an audience. (Q&A, concerns, acknowledgement etc.) Group Dynamics will show you how to: involve an audience in asking questions; stay connected to the whole audience while specifically addressing a single person; properly acknowledge the members of your audience for their participation and many more invaluable audience interaction techniques.
AUDIENCE INTERACTION TOOLS
The Audience Interaction Tolls taught are a set of six ‘Accelerated Learning Techniques’ which you can use to actively engage an audience with your material getting them to instantly absorb key points. These six are easy to execute and when done properly get immediate, clear responses from your audience. When an audience is consistently being called upon to repeat sections of material, their inherent desire to know the answers or be ‘right’ is triggered, as a result their minds stay alert and focused because they do not know when they will next be called upon. The six techniques are:
- Enrolling Question
- Repetitive Fill
- Pointed Response
- Command Response
- Hanging Response
- Fill in the blank
We use many of these techniques in our training room on a regular basis and as a result, the material is so well ingrained we have students repeating our material back to us years later.
HYPNOTIC LANGUAGE PATTERNS (H.L.P.)
Hypnotic Language Patterns are a form of Neuro-Linguistic Programming used to bypass the conscious mind, empower your audience and move them through issues or objections that arise. In this course, we focus on three types of H.L.P. which are easy to implement and designed to immerse your audience more fully into your content and empower them further towards their greatness. These three seemingly simple language patterns are incredibly powerful and impactful and when implemented properly, can transform your presentation.
Have you ever felt nervous on stage? Chances are, yes – most of us have. A Resource Anchor is a physical motion which is tied to a number of positive experiences and emotions. These are typically experiences which involve feeling: confident, powerful, charismatic, inspirational etc.
Tying those experiences and emotions to a unique physical action allows you to bring up those feelings of confidence, power, or whatever it may be for you, and harness them towards your task at hand. Whether it is used for a speaking presentation, a coaching session or simply a tool to help you out of a slump on a bad day, having a powerful Resource Anchor is an incredible tool to help you to be at your absolute best – every time.
Doors opening and closing, babies crying, airplanes flying overhead, mobile phones ringing… Experiencing any of these distractions while presenting can be incredibly frustrating — unless you know how how to utilize them. Utilization is the ability to turn distractions into enhancements. When you can seamlessly weave a sound or distraction into your presentation, the student’s minds are allowed to address it, release it and refocus their attention on your presentation; often if a distraction goes unaddressed, minds begin to wander and tune out the presenter.
Utilization is a skill that will allow you to keep attention focused on the value you have to share, as well as giving the appearance that you have the ability to make airplanes take off at your leisure, simply enhance your presentation.
Story telling is one of the methods we will use to stimulate your creativity. Story telling is a powerful tool for inductive teaching as well as a fun way to keep your audience engaged and enrolled throughout your presentation. You will use your whole body as a communication tool, using massive motions to mesmerize, stage anchoring and assuming various characters. This section will also address the idea of visual stacking, an incredibly effective way to memorize a presentation and be able to recall it instantly and effortlessly while presenting.
SPONTANEITY & HUMOR
Many of the exercises are designed to stimulate your creativity, allow you to unleash it and embrace fun and spontaneity on stage. As speakers, we don’t always know what will come up in the room; having the ability to be creative and playful with your audience gives you an incredible amount of flexibility and allows you to rapidly build a deep and lasting rapport.
