For those on the speaker circuit, what are the main influences for your speaking style?

Great question Charles.  Here are the main influences on my speaking style:

 

1. Other excellent speakers.  Listening to, and studying, how they deliver a point, a story, or a joke. 

 

2. The Public Speaking pack.  It's chocked-full with amazing nuggets.

 

3. Recording my own board plans and reviewing it.  It helps you improve your speaking style, because you see what works or not.

 

4.  Finally, gauging audience reaction.  If something rocks, the speaker gets a positive reaction.  If it's an hour of silence, head bobs from fatigue, people checking their cellphones or shuffling uncomfortably in their chair, it's worth reviewing your presentation and seeing what needs to be improved.

 

Hope it helps!

Awesome question.....

 

I think it's easy for me to say that pretty much every speaker I have ever seen has contributed to my personal speaking style.  The LIFE Leadership circuit is filled with such incredible speakers that I think there's always something to glean from each.....

I think Chris said it very well. I have been around this community a fair amount of years. When I'm not doing an open, I still study the speakers. I will take notes on certain things they say and maybe even more, the way they say, or deliver their point.

CJ said it well, just be aware every time u watch a speaker, ur not just listening to their content you are listening to their delivery and style, become a student of speaking.

Just heard your talk "Just Run with Your Heart." Amazing talk! A lot of references from LIFE Training System CD's are sprinkled throughout your talk, thus providing evidence that you truly are a relentlessly persistent learner. I can't wait to see you talk live on stage CJ!

Wayne MacNamara always taught me to not just look for what the speaker is saying, but listen to how he makes the people feel.

I like this advise from Chris Brady: "do not perform, relate". It's about establishing relationships one audience at a time.
