Four Exercises For Speaking Power

Exercise 1: What’s the listening?
We always speak into a listening, which changes from person to person, from audience to audience, and over time. If you want to hit the bullseye instead of missing the target altogether, simply get into the habit of asking yourself: “What’s the listening?” both when you’re planning what to say and as you meet the audience, whether it’s one person or a group. As you practice, you will become better and better at feeling the listening, and at adapting your content and delivery to suit.
