Want Your Team to Trust Your Message? Be Yourself!
Many speakers erect a public façade when delivering their message.
They hide behind a persona (the Public Speaker) to protect their feelings. They tell themselves that any negative reactions are in response to this adopted person and not aimed at them personally.
However, this 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 and stop hiding behind a role you feel you need to play.
