lHere is my gift to you...the gift of concise knowledge (az öz bilgi). If this is the only thing you ever read on how to be persuasive and charismatic while presenting something on stage or while at a meeting or while leading a team...I PROMISE YOU IT WILL BE MORE THAN ENOUGH.
All of these suggestions seem super easy to do. Some are, some aren't. Doing them all at once while making them your own is difficult but, ABSOLUTELY DO-ABLE.
Mastering the art of always being aware of your body, thoughts and feelings is difficult to do. It is even more difficult to do when you are "on stage" during a presentation, interview, sales pitch or speech.
The good news is that these are all things that you can learn. There is no special "public speaking and persuasion" gene.
First you need to become aware of what works and why. Then you need to understand what you are doing that works and what you are doing that might be detracting from your stage or executive presence (sahne/liderlik gücünüzü azaltan, zayıflatan faktörler). Finally, you need to develop your own personal communication style, your OWN charismatic presence.
This should be a style that doesn't completely ignore any of the important "communication rules" BUT, it should be a style that works for you and your own personal style, culture and context (bağlam/durum).
All of this takes some intellectual work...reading, research PLUS some interpersonal work...internalization through practice and feedback (geri bildirim ve pratik ile içselleştirme). Use a coach, a mentor, a colleague, a friend, a mirror or your iphone to see what you look like when communicating.
Go ahead splurge (keseyi aç)...print these pages on some good quality paper IN COLOR and hang them up where you can see them so that you can remember these tips everyday in all important communicative situations (önemli iletişim anları/alanları).
