The first two myths have to do with speech delivery and the second two myths have to do with speech construction. Let’s consider speech delivery first. Myth #1 is that speech writing has little to do with speech delivery. The truth is that speech writing has a great impact on how the speech is delivered! Myth #2 is that great speech delivery is all about you, the speaker. On the contrary, great delivery is all about the audience’s desires, needs, and wants coalescing with the passionate message of the speaker so that the audience, speaker, and message become one! Now let’s consider myths 3 & 4 which have to do with speech construction. Myth #3 is that research for a speech must be done first before choosing the purpose and message of the speech. For the most part, this is not so! One of the best ways to waste your precious time is to research a topic with no idea as to the purpose and essence of your message. You might have experienced the frustration of having done hours of research, generating thirty minutes worth of speech material when you’ve been allotted only ten minutes for your speech! The truth is that once the speech topic has been selected, you should focus your efforts on the specific purpose and central idea of your speech. After that, spend time on brainstorming before you do any research. Myth #4 is the belief that a speech needs to be written in the same order in which it is delivered – introduction-body-close. Not so. Join me in the soon to be delivered video lessons to the members of Dr. Dilip’s Diamonds Club where you will learn that the most practical sequence for speech preparation is body-close-introduction.

A Philosophy of Winners -- If you live in the USA or Canada, you may have recently watched college football bowl games and NFL playoff games. If you are in Asia, you may have watched cricket matches or rugby football games. Chances are that at some point you wondered what sets top performers apart from the other athletes. I believe that what sets the top performers apart in any sport are also the same things that set the top speakers apart in the world of speaking. Talent is not the sole arbiter of top performance. Assuming adequate talent, I believe that the top four differentiators are as follows: (1) drop the baggage of the past – you can read about this in part I of The Path of the Genie; (2) Humility (part II of The Path of the Genie); (3) Self-discovery (part III of The Path of the Genie); (4) Self-offering (part IV of The Path of the Genie). The above four are available for everyone – including you!

Quote to Think About
“Each of us is a master at something, and part of becoming fully alive is to discover and develop our birthright competence.”
-- Parker J. Palmer

Kiplinger Speaks
Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine of March 2011 reports that employers value verbal communication higher than analytical skills, a strong work ethic, and the ability to work on a team, according to the survey by the National Association of Colleges and Employers. Mike Hendel, Associate Director of the Career Center at Carleton College is quoted saying: “You can be the sharpest person on paper, but if you can’t give a group presentation or summarize at a staff meeting, what’s an employer to do?” Find out how a speech coach can help you shine verbally!
