Presence…On stage or in life!

One of the side benefits for all speakers is having stage presence. Every speaker on stage in front of an audience, large or small, wants to command the stage and have the audience pay attention to every word that is uttered. Speakers study and practice their speaking skills to achieve this.
One side benefit that anyone who speaks achieves by developing a stage presence is what happens when they walk into a room. People who can command a stage will also command a room that they walk into. The same skills that are used to have a presence when they are in front of an audience can be used when they walk into a room filled with strangers. Many people think that the skills they develop for being in front of audience do not work when they walk into a meeting room or in a social setting. You must realize that the same skill sets that you develop to speak in front of an audience whether it is 300 people or 10 people will help you when you walk into any room whether it is a social gathering or a business meeting.
So, the next time when you into a room and want to command, mentally pretend that you are in fact walking on to a stage!
