If you’re interested in electrifying your audiences, increase the voltage of your conversation. That’s the core message that Henry Boettinger described his 1969 book, Moving Mountains, which includes the best definition I’ve ever read about communication:
"Presentation of ideas is conversation carried on at high voltage — at once more dangerous and more powerful."
I don’t think we could ask for a more electrifying antidote to our often stale, boring, and bullet-pointed communications culture. In his brief quote, Henry describes a presentation as a two-way conversation, with the potential to carry a high-voltage exchange of energy. And beyond that, it can even be dangerous, and more powerful. Wow – what an engaging vision for communications.
Tomorrow in my free web seminar I’ll show you how you can transform your own communications beyond bullet points in three steps. But be careful, because after you attend the seminar you just may be in danger of generating a powerful new way to electrify your ideas, yourself, and your audiences.
