Secret to Becoming a Great Speaker (extended version)

  1. 1. The Secret to Becoming a Great Speaker
  2. 2. Everyone has the potential to become a great speaker. This is a fact not fiction nor hype nor fantasy. Everyone, that includes you! Realize this, no one is born a great speaker but it does take a lot of work. To prove this we are going to look at two examples. The first one is…
  3. 3. Winston Churchill
  4. 4. Winston Churchill is a great example of someone who became a great speaker through hard work. Churchill had a slight stammer and a lisp when he was young. At age 29 he literally froze for three minutes at the House of Commons as a newly elected representative. Everyone in the room laughed at him. He vowed never again would this happen. From that day on Winston made it his “only ambition to be master of the spoken word” and he improved his skill through immense preparation and practice over many years.
  5. 5. There is another guy I know personally who had such a intense fear of speaking that he could not speak in front of others.
  6. 6. I use to get petrified when I had to speak in front of others. During my university days I was a physical education major. When I had to get out in front to teach my classmates I did terrible due to my fear. They would all laugh at me. So I avoided speaking in front of others as much as possible.
  7. 7. When I was 30 years old taking a class on how to preach in Bible school I ended up not doing my first sermon the day I was suppose to because I had stayed up the night before vomiting due to the fear I had.
  8. 8. When I began speaking in front of others on a regular basis I got better step by step. Over the years I became an ok speaker but it was not until I joined Toastmasters 4 years ago that I finally began to see great improvement in my speaking ability.

  33. 33. dulcewill@gmail.com facebook.com/dulcewill
  34. 34. Why? Once you have decided your why the next step is to…
  35. 35. Foundation
  36. 36. It is critical that we first build a solid learning foundation in order to develop the skills needed to be great and succeed in speaking and anything else in life! This is critical no matter what you want to learn.
  37. 37. ProactiveDavis Aurini 99% of being an expert is nailing down the basics...establish a basis, a solid foundation, a routine, and the rest will follow.
  38. 38. Through studying, speaking and mentoring others I have discovered there are three layers to a solid learning foundation. The first layer is…
  39. 39. Mindset Choosing to have a learning mindset.
  40. 40. System Developing a learning system.
  41. 41. Routine Establishing a learning routine.
  42. 42. Let’s look at these three things in a bit more detail.
  43. 43. Mindset
  44. 44. A learning mindset. Some call it a growth mindset. Once you have decided your why the next step is to change your mindset. Your mindset about learning determines your success in life whether it’s becoming a great speaker or something else. What is mindset?
  45. 45. A mindset is a set of ideas and attitudes that shape the way we think about ourselves and the world. It determines how we behave, our outlook on life and our attitude towards everything that’s going on around us. What are some aspects of a learning mindset?
  46. 46. Proactive Commitment Effort Feedback ? Discipline Excellence Self-Learner
  47. 47. ? Guess what is another important mindset we have to have in order to become a great speaker. The mindset we have on dealing with…
  48. 48. Fear
  49. 49. Fear is like a bully. It wants to limit you! You need to face your fear! Lean into your fear! Go through your fear! That is how you defeat fear! Once you conquer your fear of speaking it will be easier to defeat other fears as well.
  50. 50. Michael Hyatt Learning to welcome uncomfortable things, even things you're afraid of, helps you get outside of your box -- and that's where true growth and innovation happen. When you confront new obstacles, you're compelled to push past your limits to overcome them
  51. 51. Mind Set That’s a look at the first layer of our learning foundation. Next we move on to…
  52. 52. System A learning system is the step by step process we use to learn something.
  53. 53. Goals can provide direction and even push you forward in the short-term, but eventually a well- designed system will always win. Having a system is what matters. Committing to the process is what makes the difference. James Clear
  54. 54. Toastmasters CC manual is a learning system.
  55. 55. I’ve developed a 15 step system that I use along with the T.M. manual for myself & those I mentor. I call it…

  57. 57. I have included it in the resources I put together for you. Let me share with you the first three steps from it. What is the first step?
  58. 58. ReadTo read the project in the manual. The next step is to….
  59. 59. To-Do ListMake a to-do list of what you need to do for your project. Rather than explain it here is an example.
  60. 60. Project 2 To-Do List 1. Select the topic for my speech - best one for me and my audience 2. Make an outline of my speech - logically arrange my ideas 3. Write the introduction for my speech - catch the audience’s attention 4. Write the body of my speech - supports the main idea of speech 5. Write the conclusion of my speech - reinforce ideas and make memorable 6. Focus on transitions - move smoothly from one topic to another Write out a to-do list in the first person - see “my speech” - short and to the point. After that the third step is to…
  61. 61. sixminutes.dlugan.com
  62. 62. sixminutes.dlugan.com Check out this great website that has guides for the first 7 projects. While this site is not posting anything new it has tons of great articles on public speaking.
  63. 63. Mind Set System We’ve looked at mindset and learning system. Let’s move on now to…
  64. 64. Routine Establishing a routine, a time set aside each day, to use your learning system that results in continual growth.
  65. 65. One hour per day of study will put you at the top of your field within three years. Within five years you’ll be a national authority. In seven years, you can be one of the best people in the world at what you do. Earl Nightingale
  66. 66. Doing a little bit everyday is far superior to cramming just before a speech. The brain takes time to rewire itself. Establish a time to spend at least 15 minutes a day. Connect it with something you already do.
  67. 67. Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit. Aristotle
  68. 68. Winston Churchill Continuous effort, not strength or intelligence, is the key to unlocking our potential.
  69. 69. Mind Set System Routine Once we establish the correct learning foundation we need to…
  70. 70. Focus
  71. 71. We need to focus our mindset, system and routine on three things for every speech.
  72. 72. AudienceKnowing our audience.
  73. 73. ContentDeveloping our content.
  74. 74. DeliveryPracticing our delivery.
  75. 75. One More Thing…
  76. 76. Speak Speak Speak Take every possible opportunity to speak in front of others. You need to be persistent in speaking as much as possible.
  77. 77. Details please! Here are a few of the details.
  78. 78. Audience
  79. 79. The first step is to know your audience. You need to be able to tell them why they should listen to you.
  80. 80. SurveyMonkey Free: Questions per survey - 10. Number of responses -100.
  81. 81. Public speaking involves an audience. If you focus entirely on yourself in an effort to be perfect, you’re forgetting the more important half of the equation – the people who have to get your presentation for it to mean anything. Nick Morgan
  82. 82. Michelle Mazur The more you know about the audience the more you’re able to meet them exactly where they are. When you meet the audience at THEIR starting point, you’ll be able to move them to where you want them to go.
  83. 83. Content
  84. 84. Great speeches require great content. Spend one week getting to know your audience, doing research, determining the purpose of your speech and developing an outline then one week to write out your speech.
  85. 85. Chris Anderson Your number one mission as a speaker is to take something that matters deeply to you and rebuild it inside the minds of your listeners. The only thing that truly matters in public speaking is not confidence, stage presence or smooth talking. It’s having something worth saying.
  86. 86. Delivery
  87. 87. Two weeks for this as well - the first week fine-tune and get comfortable with the words you are saying - we don’t speak like we write. Then during the second week add practicing your body gestures and after that work on your vocal variety .
  88. 88. If you rehearse really, really, really well — it looks improvisational. Some people rehearse to a point where they’re robotic, and they sound like they have memorized their presentation and didn’t take it to the next level. Going from sounding memorized and canned to sounding natural is a lot of work. Nancy Duarte
  89. 89. Rob Biesenbach Some people fear that too much rehearsal undermines spontaneity and authenticity. Actors know the opposite to be true. Having your material internalized actually frees you to live in the moment.
  90. 90. Scott Schwertly The sound of your voice is like a cake, it’s the delicious result of different ingredients mixed together. This includes your cadence, tone, speed, and volume, all of which add up to the final result. For presenters, being understood is everything. But even more than this, studies suggest that people determine how trustworthy or dominant you are within the first 500 milliseconds of hearing your voice.
  91. 91. Michael Hudson When you’re on stage, every movement you make, every step you take, impacts the way the audience receives your message. If your movements align with your words, they increase the impact of your message. But if they appear random or disconnected, they will derail even the best message.
  92. 92. The best speeches and presentations, the ones that are delivered effortlessly; the ones that we remember; the ones that make an impact, are usually the result of thorough and careful preparation. John Zimmer
  93. 93. Gary Genard You have to learn how to speak with physical expressiveness…You and I, in other words, need to find a physical expression for our messages. Think about that: how can you use your body to clarify, strengthen, and amplify the sense of what you’re saying? That truly is the value of body language in public speaking.
  94. 94. Speak Speak Speak You will only get better by speaking.
  95. 95. You must learn to speak by speaking. Dale Carnegie
  96. 96. Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. Calvin Coolidge
  97. 97. What?
  98. 98. When you are speaking what do you want to do with your audience? Before we look at that let’s look at what you don’t want to do. Whatever you do please don’t …
  99. 99. Kill …kill your audience!
  100. 100. Kill Don’t bore them to death! Don’t overwhelm them with too much information! Don’t be confusing! What should be your goal as a speaker?
  101. 101. ConnectTo connect with your audience during the opening.
  102. 102. Engage To keep your audience engaged throughout the whole speech.
  103. 103. ChangeTo motivate your audience to change in specific ways during the closing.
  104. 104. ?How do we do that?
  105. 105. Connect
  106. 106. First you need to connect with your audience during the opening with your smile, open body gestures, eye contact, enthusiasm and voice. Then you need to connect what you are going to talk about with your audience. Remember how I started out? “Everyone in this room can become a great speaker!” Your audience needs to know why they should listen.
  107. 107. Jim Anderson The quality of your next speech will not be determined by the amount of effort that you put into your slides. It won’t be determined by your clever use of pauses and hand gestures. Instead, your level of success will depend on how well you are able to connect with your audience.
  108. 108. Engage
  109. 109. To keep your audience engaged throughout your speech also requires the use of your body and voice and a logical structure that is simple, short and clear to follow with effective transitions.
  110. 110. Change
  111. 111. Lastly, your speech should change your audience in some way. It should change how they feel or think or what they do.
  112. 112. Transform You want your audience to transform into a better version of themselves because of your speech.
  113. 113. Jared Senseman The purpose of a speech is to move people to action. You point an audience to a place where they want to be, a distant hilltop, a better future, a more stable company, a more ‘connected’ life. You make them dissatisfied with where they are now and tempt them with a ‘golden tomorrow’ – and then you’ve got to show them how to get there. Or at least, you do if you want to be great.
  114. 114. Call to Action
  115. 115. For your audience to change you will need to tell your audience what you want them to do with what you said. Give them something specific to do after your speech is done. As an example I will give you a call to action towards the end of these slides.
  116. 116. Sunset As we come to the end of time together remember!
