by Brent Filson

The CEO of a worldwide business asked me to help him develop a talk he planned to give to several hundred of his top executives. He said, "I feel as if I am Daniel going into the lion's den."

Indeed, it was the business equivalent of a lion's den that he was entering. Hired from a competing firm, he was a stranger to the company, a company hobbled by declining market share and bad morale caused by the arbitrary actions of the previous CEO, an isolated dictator.

"This is the first time most of them will see and hear me," he said. "I'll give a presentation on the state of the business."

"Hold on," I said. "Don't give a presentation. Give a speech instead."
There is a difference, I explained, between a presentation and a speech, and leaders must understand that difference. A presentation communicates information, but a speech has people believe in you and follow you. More than 95 percent of leadership communication should be speech not presentation communication.

"You're facing an important leadership situation," I said. "The old saying, 'You never get a second chance to make a first impression' applies here in spades. You've got a great speech opportunity. But to have people believe in you and follow you, they must be emotionally committed to you and what you say. So understand what their emotional needs are."

Well before his speech was to be given, we talked to a number of his managers and found out that they were feeling intimidated by the demands of increasingly sophisticated customers. We found out that they feared not being supported in the decisions they made in the field. We learned that they were angry at having to meet what they considered unnecessary reporting requirements. We learned that they didn't trust the top executives.

Intimidation, fear, anger, distrust . . . those emotions described the state of his audience and, in truth, the state of the business.
The CEO gave a speech that spoke to and answered the needs of those emotions, a talk based on the single idea that he was a person that they could trust.

That speech marked the beginning of a turnaround for that company.
The lesson: emotion drives leadership speeches. Analyze and speak to the emotion of a situation, and you can become a dramatically more effective leader.

Make that analysis happen this way:
* Know the difference between a presentation and a speech then view every speaking situation you encounter as either a presentation situation or a speech situation.
* Know that you rarely give presentations, that the speech is your primary leadership communication tool.
* Analyze the emotions of your audience by asking what they feel at the time you speak, what they fear, what angers them, what inspires them.
* Structure your talk around emotional-talking points. For instance, list three things that angers your audience. Make those things the main headings of your talk.
* Speak to them about their emotions. Tell them, for instance, that you realize they are angry and what they are angry about. Tell them what you realize they are feeling.

Speak thus, and you are revealed in powerful motivational ways. Furthermore, they are revealed to themselves.

These revelations can create strong bonds between speakers and audiences.

Understand the speaking situation in terms of its emotional content, and you understand that situation in new ways. Understand it in new ways and you speak in new ways. And when you speak in new ways, your audience acts in new ways.
