The truth of the day is I am GRUMPY. I am a little down, a little low energy and I’m feeling really grumpy… I am supposed to be shooting this marketing video and connecting with the camera and be positive and passionate…
But I don’t feel like it today!
This Workshop Wealth Tip is all about Authentic Emotional Expression.
There was a time in the workshop and trainer industry where it was appropriate to get up on stage and stuff down whatever you were feeling inside. You know, suck it up and stuff it down and just perform and be happy and passionate no matter what was happening.
That’s NOT the way it is anymore…
People in your audience are craving authentic communication, truthful communication and they are craving authentic emotional expression.
So my tip for you is that no matter what you are feeling show your audience that. If you are telling a story and feel really moved… tell your audience that.
Even if you cry, show your audience what is going on – stay in connection with them as you feel your feelings and express them.
Maybe you are angry? Again… show your audience that! Just stay in connection with them.
Maybe you are feeling grumpy like I am.
Live out loud, let them know whats really going on for you. This way you are going to build trust, you are going to build rapport and you are going to be congruent.
Because at some level, if you try to mask those things, they are going to feel it anyway.
So feel your feelings, express them, live out loud and when you do that in the company of your audience you are going to feel better, they are going to feel better and everything is going to go smoother…
And you might even end up being in a better mood. I’m feeling better already!
So that’s your Workshop Wealth Tip for this week.
You’ll notice right below the video there is a place to leave a comment or a question so go ahead and do that.
If you have any questions at all about what is appropriate on stage or what isn’t appropriate on stage go ahead and leave it there and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
Until next time be brilliant!
