Stephen Russell – Barefoot Doctor’s Great Presence
The failsafe method for confident & enthralling public speaking & personal communication
At the heart of being able to speak confidently in public (and in person) is to make it feel as if the conversation is one to one, from your heart to the heart of whomever’s listening to you, no matter how many in number.
That way you strike an empathic resonance – each person in the audience, or the individual you’re with, feels you speaking directly to them – and provided all other relevant factors are in place – striking the congruent tone of voice, body movement and stance, being clear about your message, and so on, everyone comes away feeling better and more beautiful for being seen and communed with, no matter how prosaic or challenging the situation.
A recent survey found a notable percentage of people would rather find themselves in the casket than have to give the eulogy at a funeral – everyone fears public speaking – but at some point in your life you’re likely to be called upon to give an address of some sort – best man speech, 50th birthday speech – a presentation, a pitch – you probably have some sort of public presentation coming up soon you’re scared or nervous of doing.
Or you may have an interview coming up, or a difficult personal conversation to have.
And if the thought of having that important or difficult conversation – the interview for that job you want badly, a personal negotiation with someone close, at work with a tricky colleague, or socially, let alone having to give a best man or woman speech, give a business presentation, or speak to the Queen – one where you want the best possible outcome for all concerned – then
consider how much better you would feel if you had
- full command of your mind and what it was you wanted to say
- full command of your vocal tone, your cadence, your tempo, your face, your facial expression, your posture, your body language…
- self-confidence and held yourself in sufficiently high esteem…
you’d be part if the way there – and the Great Presence training is going to give you that.
But to reach your full potential as a communicator, someone who knows how to swiftly gain clarity about the message they want to deliver, who can think, as in be cognitive, on their feet, who can convey their message succinctly and engagingly, whether talking to one person or ten thousand,
the remaining ingredients consist of understanding
- the power of intention
- your role and function as communicator
- the role of your listener or audience, and perhaps above all,
This training will also give you that.
By following the carefully thought-through sequence as prescribed you will become a great communicator, a great public speaker, and of course, a great presence.
The chances are then that you’ll catch the communicating bug and rather than shy away from any form of public speaking, however large or small the audience, or away from difficult conversations of any sort, you’ll relish every opportunity similarly to how a great conductor might relish every opportunity to conduct a great orchestra playing a great concerto or symphony.
This in itself will open up avenues of opportunity in your adventure you had no idea were there and thus provide countless new options and broader, brighter prospects.
