In this episode, Dean Newlund and Elena Paweta discuss:
- Two types of confidence
- Reducing self-consciousness
- Creating a balance in your story
- Being aware of your patterns
- The outer confidence is much easier to work on, practice good posture, gestures, eye contact, and voice projection. Inner confidence is more about your mindset but building outer confidence can contribute to building your inner confidence.
- Focus on the value that the audience could get from your message and how it could change their life. Doing this will help you keep the focus out from yourself, it will make you feel less self-conscious.
- Create a balance of inspiration and information in your speech. Make sure to always include facts in your message, along with your personal story.
- If you want to improve as a speaker you have to be aware of the patterns you do that hinder you from being the most effective speaker you can be.
- Ask somebody you trust to point out your blind spots and contemplate on their feedback.
“We need to not only show how confident we are but we also have to feel this confidence.” — Elena Paweta
