More than the oral CV
In a self-presentation, of course, you have to perform quite a few professions. In addition to the name, this can already be finished. And that is enough for a moment, because the situation and the goal are important.
An ideal is, however, a self-concept, which is a little more than an oral CV. But if you really want to remember, use a surprise, in which he packs this data. Some examples:
- Thus a surprise can be used as a thread
- "My life motto: catch up - from the bottom it is too heavy. That's why I ... ".
- "My parents raised me, a girl, as a boy"
- "I never wanted to become a doctor because I could not see any blood"
- An object has changed my life [eg. As braces, the dentures of the great-grandmother, etc. - possibly even high]
Use formal surprises
Another way to attract attention is to use a formal surprise. And this goes like this:
- "I'm going to marry 3x because an astrologer prophesied that to my birth"
- "Five important events characterize my life: In year 2030 I'm boss of xxx, 2020 I learn Japanese, 2010 ..." This tells life backwards from dreams to birth.
- "My life can be seen very differently: My mother would tell it that way, my father would describe it like that, my last superior so ..." - so three perspectives
The perfect entry level
In addition, a direct introductory sentence that draws attention and a conclusion that sets an emotional landmark as a "climax" helps.
Monologue self-presentation, without it becoming a conversation, usually take between 45 seconds and probably 10 minutes. You can prepare yourself with a "standard presentation" and even perform the presentation speech perfectly.
- The standard idea is built modular so that it can be cut from the back without losing any substance. Thus, the speaker has immediate control of each length
- The special situation or listener builds the speaker through thematic variations
Thus the speech is strategically always ready - but tactically flexible.
Improve the redecode
In the course of time one can then slowly expand his speech from speech to speech. You should not ask for too much at once, because even Bach does not play on the piano the first time completely.
Step by step you need to develop your skills and understand every public speech like a training. And if something does not work?
The audience wants to see the speaker win
Do not worry, the audience did not know what they were up to, and it's always benevolent except for a crisis speech. It wants to see the speaker win. This almost always happens more or less intensively - unless we talk about weeds.
Nevertheless, doctors do not learn it during their studies, managers are more intuitive users and even many ProfessorIn spite of lectures, they hold the effective speech for a foreign country. Quality rhetoric is still a foreign word for many.
Performance alone is not enough
This is especially so in Germany, where a technology-oriented, engineering-driven, service-disciplined nation was educated in the belief that core performance must be just enough to make a career and earn economic victories.
The fact that you have to convince other people through speech and talk was completely unknown to the trainers in school, crafts and studies and is mostly still today. But now there is no more success in the speech.
Symbiosis with the listeners
But speakers and listeners work on a mutualist symbiosis of collaboration. A speech is always about cooperation = the trend word of the future. The speaker helps the listener with his performance as the listener helps by reaction the speaker.
By offering information, entertainment and emotional-emotional contact, the presenter not only wants to work, but also promotes one's reputation and reputation.
The 4 maxims of a speech
The English philosopher Paul Grice formulated communication maxims, which can be read like a guide for the basic development of a speech:
- Maxime of Quantity: Be at least as informative as is necessary for the acknowledged purpose of the speech. Do not make them more informative than necessary.
- The maxim of quality: Try to be true and say nothing that you think is wrong. Do not say anything for which you have no sufficient clues.
- Maxime of relevance: Say nothing that does not belong to the topic and does not change the subject.
- Maxime of Style: Avoid ambiguity, ambiguity, unnecessary prolixity and disorder.
Learn the packaging art of speech
Already that is missing in many trainings because the speech-handicraft does not stand in the job profiles. The result is too many PowerPoint presentations that do not hold any of these points. If one wants to create an effective speech performance from these basic rules, it is important to learn the art of packaging the speech. A. Busch already formulated this in his booklet "Speeches and Toasts" 1899:
"So the art of talking can be acquired, that's for sure. But here, as in many other things, exercise alone does not do the trick. But it also requires specific instructions, rules and hints that you have to pay attention to to become a successful speaker. "
