Tips from the broadcast

You don’t have to be a c-suite executive to have executive presence! It’s in your body language and voice.

Take a seat where you’re going to be visible, sit next to the Power Players.

This is a grounding position. Feet flat on the floor lean in, and then put both hands on the table. Sitting up straight and looking directly at the listener. You’re going to look confident. If you look confident, people will think you’re confident. It doesn’t matter how you’re feeling inside because you are now wearing the uniform of confidence.

Keep doing this and your neural pathways will start to change and you will be confident.

Adjust for the culture of the workplace. It’s not about being inauthentic, it is about how the listener best listens. Effusiveness may put a quiet person off.

C-suite people usually want headlines and dot pointes, get to the point.

Implementers, engineers, Workplace Health and Safety people usually require details. Tell illustrative stories but keep them short.

Get to the point.

Ladies, don’t tilt your head when talking. It’s OK for active listening but it’s a submission posture.

Beware lifting your voice at the end of a statement the way you do for a question.

And so much more! Diane’s has a free course for presenters at www.diresta.com “7 Deadly Mistakes Speakers Make and How to Avoid Them for Maximum Success!”
