People judge us based on:
-what we wear
-our body language
-our tone of voice
-our communication style
All this together creates our Presence
If 70% of communication is non-verbal, what are you saying?
"But that's who we are. There is nothing we can do about it, right?"
Wrong! The best performers in the world create characters that seem like real people by changing these characteristics and then filling them with their own experience so they feel authentic!
"But I don't want to come across as if I'm acting"
We are all acting all the time. We are not the same at work as we are at home. We are different with one person than we are with another person but guess what? It's all us. The essence of us is the same wherever we go. We just act differently based on exterior stimuli or circumstances. It is "us" how we would act in that particular set of circumstances.
"So how do I do that?"
