Public Speaking Training for Executives with Disciplined Listening

Presentations are precarious propositions. While they provide opportunities for communicators to demonstrate their expertise they may simultaneously cause some communicators to feel vulnerable and exposed. The best instructors present themselves as humble, knowledgeable, approachable and understanding of their audiences. These qualities enhance both their stage presence and their audience’s willingness to apply what they learn.

Focusing on fears can cause presenters to be overcome by them. Confidence on stage is born from three factors: preparation, experience and surviving mistakes. The Disciplined Listening Influential Instruction Method provides a content focused approach that encourages speakers to stay true to themselves while persuasively delivering their messages

There are three rules for delivering impactful presentations: Know yourself. Know your content. Know your audience. Anyone can inform a group. Communicators driven to influence, educate and motivate their audiences thoroughly prepare, remain situationally awareness and a commit themselves to excellence.
