Most people don’t need to learn how to communicate. We all communicate with our peers and colleagues every day. If you can’t communicate effectively in front of others, it’s not because you don’t know how.
Seminar participants do not improve as speakers by being given rules to follow or from having their mistakes pointed out.. If a speaker is constantly worrying about himself, the content of the speech suffers or even worse: the speaker becomes so stressed and nervous that he cannot communicate at all any more and gives up in panic and disgust.
The best reason for wanting to listen to a speaker is the speaker herself. So it is imperative that a speaker embraces her true personality, instead of learning rules and Systems to become someone she is not.
Michael Rossié has developed his very own method, which enables everyone to speak freely within a short period of time and without increasing the time for preparation. For 30 years, thousands of people have used this method, and they are thrilled at how easy it is to make captivating speeches and convince others.
By comparing presentation style with everyday communication, Michael Rossié will show you that rhetorical devices are counterproductive. It is authenticity that connects you with your audience or clients. This approach is entirely different from any other rhetoric training that you may have come across and is based on my decades of experience as an actor and trainer. Even if you have done rhetoric trainings to death, you will learn something new! My methods have been documented in my books.
If I talk to two or three people, I rarely have difficulty expressing my ideas and presenting my opinion. But standing in front of a group, everything suddenly gets more difficult. Proper training teaches you how to avoid boring your audience to tears or nervously pacing back and forth. Take this opportunity to become a confident and competent Speaker, behind the microphone or on stage. The most important thing in your presentation ist you!
In everyday conversational situations, we communicate with our non-verbal (Body language) and para-verbal (tone) signals. If I know how I come across to other people – what my body language and tone of voice say about me – then I can improve my communication skills dramatically. It’s a Tuning-up for your personality. Ego. Improve your effectiveness, understand your counterpart better and learn to deal with conflicts a little more competently. Paying Close Attention and listening carefully will reap countless benefits on a daily basis.
If you have the opportunity to promote yourself or your company on television or in print, most people are quick to say yes. But without any experience of how to behave in an interview and how to play to the crowd without playing to the crowd, things can go badly wrong. It’s not just about knowing ho media situations like this work, it’s about using the opportunity to your own personal advantage. This is especially true, when you’re asked difficult questions or even attacked.
Presenting a TV format and speaking in front of a groups are not innate competencies, but something you have to learn. Good TV and media presenters don’t read – they speak freely. They are flexible, quick-witted, and chat freely with their guests. At the same time they are always authentic and they come across as warm and personable. In addition to working with voice, language and body language, the techniques and requirements for different types of broadcast will be discussed and practiced. The goal is to be relaxed and genuine on camera. But I also Train participants how to work with the teleprompter and how to use ist properly.
Why is listening to someone never like being told a story, like having something explained, like hearing it spoken, but always like…reading out loud.
