How to persuade anyone in 6 steps (Speechwriter Secrets) | Simon Lancaster

So today I'm gonna share with you some speechwriter secrets.

I don't know whether you know this, but there is a secret language of leadership;

a secret language of leadership that we all used to be taught at school.

Ancient rhetoric.

Today, teaching in rhetoric is restricted; restricted to a powerful, privileged few.

So what I'm gonna do in my speech is revive this ancient art of rhetoric and share with you six techniques so that you can all speak like leaders.

The Art of Rhetoric - Simon Lancaster

Most people fear giving speeches, almost as much as the rest of us dread listening to them. The lectern has a cruel capacity to render even the mighty vulnerable. Fortunately there is a science to the art of public speaking and it dates back to Ancient Greece. Simon Lancaster will open up a veritable treasure trove of ancient rhetorical devices and help you discover how to become a master in the language of leadership. The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website: Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597. This tradition continues today with all of our five or so public lectures a week being made available for free download from our website.

How to Speak Like a Leader

How to speak like a leader. Leadership communication skills often boil down to four key differences when compared to the average person. FREE 7 Instant Tips for Confident & Composed Public Speaking


How leaders communicate:

1. Leaders speak concisely. They figure out what the heart of their message and leaders talk clearly and concisely. Developing good leadership communication skills means getting right to the point. This is the key to most executive-level communication. Leadership communication skills often boil down to conciseness.

2. Leaders can speak outside of their own area of expertise about the value of other areas of the organization. In contrast, individual contributors often get entrenched in their own personal background of knowledge (e.g., IT, engineering, etc.). Leaders understand and can speak about the value of all of those different areas. This is most noticeable in groups. A key group leadership skill is speaking outside of your expertise background. Good leadership communication skills mean moving beyond self-advocacy and speaking about other areas more fluently.

3. Leaders speak a level above individual team concerns. How leaders communicate differently is also by focusing on the coordination and strategy between and among teams to help groups work toward common goals.

4. Leaders can speak about virtually every task to the overall goals of the business, the overarching priorities of the entire organization. Leaders communicate this way (a) because they think this way, and (b) because their communication matches their priorities. As a result, others hear them and say, Oh, yeah. That's how we work toward this goal. Again, this often comes out in group settings. When it comes to group leadership skills, good leadership communication skills means reminders about the bigger picture their individual work supports. That's how leaders talk most of the time.

Now you know how to talk like a leader. Put it into practice right away.

Speechwriting: Creating Authenticity - Simon Lancaster

The image of the speechwriter in televised programmes (such as The Thick of It, The West Wing or Yes Minister) is something of a puppeteer, a sinister figure operating in the shadows, malevolently manipulating our political masters. Simon Lancaster believes that the successful speechwriter is less of a puppeteer and more of an impressionist.

In his talk, he will share a number of stories and anecdotes from his time as speechwriter, setting out how he captures someone elses authentic voice and what happens when it goes wrong.

How To Speak Like A Leader In A Meeting

As some of you already know, I've been learning a lot on the team I am on and the team I've been leading and there are few key notables that keep coming up when it comes to leadership and team meeting calls.

Although I'm talking about how to speak like a leader in a meeting more so in a team meetings, this can easily be applied to a general speaking style of leaders.

Let me be clear, this has nothing to do with being authoritative, in fact, I hate that leadership style and it's one of the lowest levels according to the 5 levels of leadership.

I concentrate on Charismatic Leadership, working WITH the team and not against it. Either way, this will boost you in how to speak in meetings with confidence to how to speak effectively in meetings because really, we got WORK to do!

ABOUT DANIEL
--------------------

My words have reached millions of people.

It all began when I realized I was living far below my potential. After failing for so long in life, I decided I wanted to change. My search started when I found the Bible, which led me to read an wide array of books.

My first business was as a public speaker, where I spoke to hundreds of live audiences. As I improved, I started a marketing firm, consulting company, and invested in several other businesses, which has helped me to attain financial independence before the age of 30.

Since the beginning of this decade, I have reached people from all walks of life. From breakfast with billionaires in Brunei to delicious dinners with dancers in Dubai, I've tasted the finest meals in hundreds of cities as I continue to inspire millions of people around the globe.

My TEDx talk is one of the most popular in the world with over 3 million views. I also run a successful YouTube channel which has helped many people start and grow their dreams. My articles have been featured on TIME, Fortune, Huffington Post, SUCCESS, Yahoo, FOX News, and other major publications.

I am also the author of three books, “You Are the Boss!, “The Winner’s Lifestyle”, and The Abundance Mentality which can be found in many countries in thousands of personal libraries. My 4th book is coming out in 2017.

I've pioneered several online courses, which offers a unique perspective on achieving personal and professional success. My 12-week course has already helped thousands of people to make dramatic changes in their personal and professional lives.

Since millions of people consider me an epitome of American success, this has given me the unique position to tell my story in an interesting way. With deep conviction and belief that all people should be wealthy, I will continue to empower people about the virtues of prosperity.
