Even the most apparently gifted speaker was not born that way. As the coach, I approach each client much like Michelangelo approached a block of stone: When asked how he could sculpt such amazing statues out of marble, he said, “I just chip away the parts that don’t look like the finished product.” Coaching of effective, motivating and inspirational speaking is a matter of knowing the end result and removing that which does not fit. All the various personalities can be effective and influential speakers – if there is interest in being so. In short, the only thing required to be an effective speaker is the desire to become one – the rest can be trained.
