Eric Booth Speaks Directly to Professional Motivational Speakers

Well, no, he doesn't APPEAR to be speaking directly to us. He's actually speaking to music teachers. But it's EXACTLY what every great motivational speaker knows and demonstrates – and what every aspiring speaker should know. AND – and here's the really cool part – I believe that this is what all PEOPLE should know if they want to be a better sales people, leaders, parents or friends. 

Eric Booth. His list of credentials is ridiculous. Award winning music director, author, and educator of Julliard, Stanford and the Kennedy Center. Take 2 minutes and listen carefully to what could be the greatest advice ever on how to be very, very effective in life. 

Here's Eric Booth on The Law of 80% of What You Teach is What You Are.

  1. Linda,

    This is a great reminder. As Kelly always says, "You have to care about your audience to connect with them." I'll make sure that Kelly weighs in on this. Also, as a parent, this is convicting. Our kids get more from watching our behavior than listening to our diatribes.

  2. Well said. Reminds me of that saying, "Wherever you go, there you are." Wherever you go, show up as your best self….people are watching. Echo Bill on kids eyeballs versus ears drinking in the truth of who you are.

  3. This is so so so so so true! I do believe that an audience is waiting to get to know you more than anything. And they are taking in everything. I LOVE this video. It speaks volumes.

  4. Which also makes us ask the question:

    Who are we?  Who do we think we are? Who do they think we are? How do we know?

  5. This really speaks to how much passion we have for adding value to our audiences, not sounding good or looking good.  They are watching us – how we interact before and after the speech is so important and of course how we handle ourselves on stage.  For music teachers?  Yes.  For motivational speakers, parents, and spouses….you bet!

  6. Wow!  He explains this so brilliantly! Even though we are "the professionals" up on stage as motivational speakers, that's only the 20%.  We do not want that chasm between us and the audience and Mr. Booth brings this importance to light so eloquently.  Thanks for provoking important thoughts Linda!
