Present with Passion
How Can You Present Yourself With More Passion?
To present with passion you must believe strongly in what you are saying. Passion is not about blending in or being middle of the road. Passion is that edge that is noticed and often desired by employers. to communicate passion it’s not what you say but how you say it that makes all the difference in the world. Passion is often described as a feeling of excitement, enthusiasm or compelling emotion towards a subject, idea, company, person, or object. When you speak, learn to use your voice to communicate the energy and unstoppable commitment you have. Words themselves mean little; most statistics indicate up to 80 percent of the message is how you say it! Learn to vary your speed and tonality to match the feelings you want to convey. If you want to communicate energy and excitement then project your voice and speak a little faster. If you want to communicate intellect and empathy then speak softer and slower. Always be aware that your level of passion will be noticed and you will be judged on it. One of the biggest mistakes an executive can make is to go into an interview lacking passion. When they do they come out flat and appear to lack interest in the opportunity. Conversely, too much passion can be just as damaging because of the risk of appearing overbearing and tiring! Always match your level of passion to your audience. As rapport is gained and that important connection is made only then can you raise the passion in the room!
