Want Your Team to Trust Your Message? Be Yourself!
Many speakers erect a façade when delivering their message. They hide behind a persona to protect their feelings. They tell themselves that any negative reactions are in response to the adopted person and not aimed at them personally.
However, this façade only creates a barrier between them and their team/audience/listeners.
Practice being yourself! Let your true personality, with all your qualities and quirks, shine through.
Your audience will place far greater trust in you and your message if you let them see the real you.
