EPISODE 14 SUMMARY & HIGHLIGHTS: 

Why should you achieve excellence in speaking?

2:50

Excellence in speaking provides authority. There's a power, a role, and a position that the C-suite team members (CEO, CEO, CFO and others) have that not everybody else has.

What is Authority?

4:05

Authority is the ability to get people to listen to you. It's that ability for you to speak for you, to lead, to write, to communicate. 

4:40

Whether it's oral or whether it's written, you need to communicate, and people need to be able to listen and follow.

 

How do you bring authority in speaking?

7:34
Believe in yourself and in what you’re saying. Also, have a grounded reason to do so.

12:06
Follow one singular thought instead of bringing about many different ones to get to a point. Focus on authority to believe in what you say. 

12:35
Breathe well. If your breath comes across as very shallow, it's very easy for your voice to take on an overly gravelly tone. It changes your physical posture and the tone of your voice, giving you enough time to think and deliver what you want to.

 

KEY QUOTES:

8:05-8:09

“You need to believe in yourself, you need to believe in your words, you need to believe in your authority.”

3:18-3:31

“Realize that their position is based on an authority that they've really already garnered with the team through their past experience, their ability, their skill, their ability to bring out the best in others and other areas of leadership.”
