Brian Stevenson, Brian Stevens, Tony Robbins discussed on The School of Greatness with Lewis Howes


I don't want people to get too focused on the number of wizard ever, but you bring up a good point. So let's go back to Brian Stevenson, Brian stain. You know, I'm, I'm urging your listeners watch Brian Stevens. He's delivery is the best delivery I've ever heard. It's very natural. Why? Because like I just talked about it's it's like he's delivering a conversation over dinner. When you're having a conversation over dinner, you're speaking in a natural rate of a rate of speech. It's kinda like you and I are talking now sort of a little bit more natural. It's not a formal PowerPoint presentation and now turning to slide twenty eight where it's very slow and plotting. I analyzed Brian Stevenson's rate of speech. It was about one hundred ninety words which may. Makes sense. Because an audio book for example, is more like about, I think it's about one hundred and twenty words, but in audio book and I've, I've read audiobooks. I've had voice instructors, voice directors in the studio with me. When I read the audio book, you're supposed to slow down a little bit. You're supposed to slow down because people are only hearing it through one channel audio, right? So it's important to kind of slow down a little bit, but you don't want to slow it down so right that people lose attention. But you also can't talk this fast. If I'm talking really fast in an audio book, you're not really gonna pay attention. You're not going to capture a lot of thoughts. So that's too fast. So one hundred ninety words a minute for just a casual immoral face to face conversation, makes complete sense that that's completely sensical just makes logical sense, which is why people like Brian Stevenson speak at about one hundred ninety words a minute. Then you get people like Tony Robbins that's more like two hundred and twenty-five words, right? So again, we're not most of us are not Tony Robbins, so I can't talk like this like Tony Robbins, early jazz fest. I if I do that in a presentation, I'm going to look like a phony because I'm trying to be somebody on not. But also it's too fast for just a public for a typical type of presentation most salespeople would have or something like that. So you gotta think about how how quickly my delivering, what's my pace? How many words per minute am I delivering? So I I don't think people should get hung up on. Okay. Now I'm gonna pay spice time myself, that type of thing and see how many words. But I do think that it's a pretty good role model start looking at people like Brian Stevenson and realize that the way most of us speak when we're pitching ourselves or delivering a presentation is very stilted and slow. And plotting compared to a much more natural in authentic rate of speech. Sure. Sherm. And you know, the verbal delivery is obviously important, but there's another thing that's important or could be distracting, which is the body language and the use, or lack of use of hand movements and gestures and things like that. And you talk about one, the power fear and why you should use the power sphere. And can you talk about the importance of that, but also easy fixes for common body language mistakes? Sure, absolutely. One of the best examples of strong body language is Colin Powell, and that doesn't surprise me Colin, how as a great military guy, right? Military leader and I find military leaders are awesome speakers. There's a viral video right now. I think of a Admiral from Texas, right? Texas, right? It's great military commanders are great connected. So Colin Powell has magnificent body language. It's what I call commanding presence. It's that kind of presence that just draws you in and makes you feel like disguising control..
