For one to be a successful motivational speaker, we studied every aspect that can affect our communication with the audience. In reality, we apply the 7 features of effective communication in our talks that were outlined by Scott Cutlip. We need to motivate our listeners so much that we studied all these and eventually applied them. As the saying goes, the success of the speaker depends on the success of the listener. This is exactly what we at motivational-speaker-success would like to convey.
Now, we will explain deeper on how these features are applied in our talks.
Who would want to listen to a motivational speaker who lacks something in his speech? If one fails to follow the process, then, it would be hard to understand. If one lacks something that is very vital in a speech for example if the speech is too vague and there are a lot of dead-air moments, then the motivational-speaker-success will not be carried out effectively. Therefore, we must assure that what we say and what we speak in front of you is complete. Without this, how can we even motivate and inspire our audience?
In order for a motivational speaker’s talk to be filled with all the lessons that he wants to impart into the audience, he needs to be concise. Imagine a speaker who blurts out sentences that are very knowledge and inspiration filled. Now, compare him with a speaker who speaks out nonsense jargons frequently. Which one do you think is better?
The motivational speaker must take into account the moods, the needs, and the perspective of his audience. He should tailor his talk according to the audience that he is talking to. He needs to check on the background and experiences of the audience. If he does this, then he should be able to understand the audience and make examples that are relatable for them.
With this, the audience will be more hooked in the conversation because they feel like the speaker already knows them. The speaker will know what they are feeling. The speaker will know what they have been up to. This will also establish the speaker-listener connection and will make it one step closer into achieving success for both parties.
With this, we should support our arguments with facts and real life experiences. The audience will not believe what a speaker is speaking without something backing it up. For an instance, if we are explaining what depression causes into its environment we should provide real life examples of depressed subjects and how the people around them were affected.
After that, if we are telling about how we can solve it, we should also provide proofs of how the depressed people found their way out of it. We should always make our talks concrete because this is one way that we could convince the audience more that we are indeed motivational speakers and we are recognizing the motivational-speaker-success way of finishing talks.
We talk to people of different backgrounds and we should consider this courtesy which in simple words, mean respect. We should take into account the culture, values and beliefs of the person that we are talking to. We need to respect it because in turn, they will respect us knowing that we understand where they came from. This is vital since respect should be mutual to the speaker and the listener in order for the talk to be successful.
In order for the audience to understand us, we need to be clear and specific. We need to focus on one objective for us to emphasize its importance and to analyze it deeply. If we focus on one objective, we could dig deeper into it and decipher its contents clearly to the audience. In the contrary, if we are not clear and specific, the audience’s attention would transfer from one topic to another. This hinders the chance for the speaker to elaborate each topic more and will leave the audience hanging at the end of the talk.
Would you like to listen to a speaker who is full of grammatical errors? This would mean ineffectiveness and incredibility of the speaker. It shows that the speaker really is not that ready with his talk rendering his process unworthy. If a speaker commits all these mistakes frequently, then how will the audience understand his point clearly? Even though he/she has shown the first 6 features, this will have a very negative overall impact.
All these are what we take into account when engaging in motivational talks. Like we said, we wanted to have the success of the speaker and the listener. This is what we at motivational-speaker-success prioritize, and this serves as our foundation.
