"The old adage, “How you do anything is how you do everything” should be considered. If you fake it from the stage, if you must manipulate through illusion to “win the crowd”, HOW REAL is what you have to offer in the end?" J Loren Norris
WHAT VALUE HAS A FAKE CRY WHEN YOU’RE PRESENTING?
If you’re in the audience and the speaker or teacher cries over a story that has no real emotion, how do your respond?
Here are a few realities of leadership communication which many people face because they have been given bad advice.
THE BAD ADVICE OFTEN SOUNDS LIKE THIS:
1. EMOTION IS POWERFUL WHEN SPEAKING
2. EMOTION SHOULD BE USED WHEN SPEAKING
3. BE EMOTIONAL WHEN SPEAKING EVEN IF YOU HAVE TO FAKE IT
Here’s the real challenge with the above advise. Statements one and two ARE TRUE and they create the illusion that statement three must be true as well. In reality, fake emotion in a speech is the same level of inauthentic and incongruity as any other form of manipulation.
Leaders who emotionally manipulate others to gain or maintain control are seldom of ever seen in a good light. Speakers who use conjured or fake emotions run the same risk when the people they speak to find out.
The old adage, “How you do anything is how you do everything” should be considered. If you fake it from the stage, if you must manipulate through illusion to “win the crowd”, HOW REAL is what you have to offer in the end?
