Charisma from the Feet Up
Stand with Confidence and Let Your Natural Self Shine
By Adele Landauer
When presenting from the stage, the words you speak are like musical notes. They can be heard, read and understood, but they cannot touch an audience without an instrument. And that instrument is you—your body and your voice. Just as a musician needs to be trained to learn how to play, so does a speaker. How can you learn to stand with confidence and let your natural self shine? How can you learn to be charismatic? Decide how you want to appear before your presentation begins. Let your body support your message. Develop a sense of mission. Inspire your audience with your presence and intensity. Always show appreciation towards others. Breathe from your core. Make sure everyone in the room feels addressed and involved. And always be authentic.
