COMMUNICATION AND CONFIDENCE IN ACTION

// YOUTUBE

Our brains process stories like computers process code - it's an intrinsic part of how we think and interact. 

This isn't just about crafting a narrative; it's about understanding the fundamental way we communicate and perceive the world around us.In this video, I dive into the essential storytelling skills that leaders, entrepreneurs, and team members should master, regardless of whether you're directly client-facing or not. 

I'm here to debunk the myth that storytelling is exclusively for professional storytellers or marketers. You, too, can harness the power of storytelling to enhance your personal brand and the values of your organization.

I'll be covering the four core stories that are vital for any professional:Identity Stories: Understanding and articulating who you are and the essence of your company or personal brand.Value Stories: Demonstrating through examples how you and your company live out your stated values in real-world scenarios.Vision Stories: Outlining where you're headed and what future you're striving to create.Teaching Stories: Sharing experiences and lessons that educate and inspire your audience.

The Four Essential Stories Every Client-Facing Team Needs

Erik Domínguez February 28, 2024 9:35 am

Speaking outlines are essential in public speaking, and finding the right one can make all the difference. 

In this video, I introduce the "Me, We, Us, We, Me" speaking outline, a straightforward yet effective framework for all your speaking needs. It's like picking the perfect outfit: it might need some tailoring, but once it fits, it feels great.

This structure is all about making connections – starting with your personal story ('Me'), relating to your audience ('We'), expanding to the wider community ('Us'), diving back into guiding your audience ('We'), and then wrapping up with a personal touch ('Me'). It's a cycle that ensures you cover all bases: personal connection, audience engagement, and impactful messaging.

I'll be breaking down each part in future videos, giving you tips on how to use this structure in any speaking scenario, from casual talks to formal presentations. If you're looking to improve your public speaking skills with a simple yet effective method, this video is a great starting point.

A Public Speaking Outline For All Occasions

Erik Domínguez February 14, 2024 8:43 am

There are certain words and phrases that are wasting your speaking time and ruining your credibility. 🕒💬❌

Don’t believe me? Check out these two drafts of my description:

“I just wanted to say something really important. I think we often overlook how the words we use, sort of, shape our conversations and credibility. So, to be honest with you, I've compiled a list of phrases that, um, we tend to use without realizing their impact. You know, like, 'I believe' or 'basically,' these words can really, kind of, make us stumble in our communication. At the end of the day, it's not just about what we say, but how we say it. And no offense, but we've all been guilty of using these phrases at some point. So, let's dive in and explore how these common words and phrases might be taking up too much of our time and, sort of, ruining our credibility.” 🗣️🚫

Now, see the revision without those words:

Today's video is about the impact of our word choices on communication and credibility. 📈

I've compiled a list of common phrases that can hinder our clarity and effectiveness in conversations. 🚨

We'll explore how avoiding these words can enhance our communication skills. Join me for an insightful discussion on speaking more confidently and effectively. 💪

If we eliminate filler words and phrases, we are not only being more direct and confident in our communication, but we are also saving ourselves (and our audience) time. ⏳👥

Virtual Keynote Speaking: The Ultimate Guide

Erik Domínguez January 25, 2024 11:42 am

Fact - everyone fears public speaking. However, there are various tools to help you in managing those neves. One of them is the hack I give you in this video!

As someone who's grappled with stage fright, I've discovered that understanding our brain's workings can be a game changer. The human brain, a complex and fascinating organ, is divided into two hemispheres, each responsible for different but equally important functions. In the high-stress situation of public speaking, the right hemisphere – which deals with emotional processing and our fight, flight, or freeze response – can sometimes take the wheel. This can lead to overwhelming emotions and instinctual reactions that cloud our thinking.

But there's hope! By actively engaging our left hemisphere, known for its prowess in logical thinking, analytical abilities, and language, we can gain control over these instinctual reactions. This shift allows us to organize our thoughts more effectively, articulate our ideas clearly, and manage our emotional responses, turning a potentially nerve-wracking experience into an empowering one.

In addition to this brain hack, I'll also guide you through a powerful exercise: asking what you want your audience to think, feel, and do. This strategy will not only help you connect with your audience on a deeper level but also give you a clearer direction for your speech.

And here's the best part – I have a special hack to share at the end of the video that's a real game changer! Trust me; you don't want to miss it. So, stay tuned, conquer your fear, and become the speaker you've always wanted to be!

Remember to like, share, and subscribe for more tips and tricks on improving your public speaking.”

Storytelling Structure for Speeches

Erik Domínguez November 1, 2023 10:46 am

Leaders need to establish their credibility to be heard. 

This week, we are going to be exploring the concept of ethos, or credibility in speaking by going OLD SCHOOL. 

📜 Going Old School with Aristotle
We're taking it way back to the teachings of Aristotle, who said, "Persuasion is achieved by the speaker's personal character when the speech is so spoken as to make us think [them] credible." This leads us to our first point: Credibility is Trust.

🤝 Trust is Key
Trust is the cornerstone of all communication. Whether in sales, public speaking, or everyday conversations, if people don't trust you, your message falls flat. But what does it mean to be trustworthy? Stick around to find out.

🎓 Expertise vs. Experience
We'll also delve into the difference between expertise and experience, two elements often confused but critically important for establishing credibility. And wait until you hear the common mistake many speakers make that completely undermines their credibility!

🚨 Don't Miss This!
I'll reveal a HUGE credibility blunder that you'll want to avoid at all costs. This mistake could be a game-changer for your public speaking and communication skills.

👉 So, if you're ready to level up your communication game and become a more credible speaker, hit that "Subscribe" button, give this video a thumbs up, and let's get started!

As the presentation got closer my anxiety was on the rise, so I reached out Erik Dominguez. Wow, thank goodness for that. Erik quickly got me on the right track by providing a framework for a great speech and assistance on my slides and talking points.

“Working with Erik individually has been a wonderful experience. He still impresses me with his skill, not only as a speaker but as a coach too. I never had a professional coach before Erik, and honestly, I wasn’t sure how much I would benefit. Erik showed me what coaching can be and probably should be. More to the point, he showed me what I’m capable of.”

“I was hoping to become a more confident speaker. And working with Erik, I 100% did. But what I didn’t expect from the process was to become a more honest speaker. Prior to working with Erik, I’d spoken in front of hundreds of people and performed in front of thousands, speaking on a stage wasn’t a fear or obstacle for me, but speaking honestly and bringing my whole heart and soul to the stage was. I knew what it felt like to be a successful speaker. Now, thanks to Erik, I know what it feels like to be an honest speaker and how much more impactful that is.”
