Redefine Your Narrative - Transform Your Speech and Thought Process in Minutes

Jun 28, 2023

 The manner in which we convey our thoughts, experiences, and knowledge can make a significant impact on ourselves and our audience. Our words and tone shape the perception of our message, making the art of delivering effective speeches a pivotal skill to master.

One tool that can help you navigate this journey towards effective communication is the "Style Exercises". This exercise acts as a catalyst to transform your thought process and refine your speaking style, making it more engaging and effective.

Here we will dissect two versions of a speech to highlight the difference it can make to your communication skills. Once you see the transformation, I'm sure you'll be compelled to download and use Style Exercises for yourself and those you interact with. 


Version 1 - Spontaneous:

"Hey everyone, how's it going? So, I just got back from a business trip to Japan, and let me tell you, it was incredible! The culture, the food, the technology, everything was mind-blowing. I had this amazing experience visiting Tokyo and exploring the bustling streets of Akihabara. It's a tech geek's paradise! I even managed to try authentic sushi at a local restaurant, and it was hands down the best I've ever had. The attention to detail and presentation was top-notch. I can't wait to plan my next adventure!”


Version 2 - After Style Exercises:

"Good morning, everyone! I hope you're all doing well. Recently, I had the opportunity to visit Japan for a business trip, and it was an unforgettable experience. Japan's rich culture and technological advancements truly fascinated me. Exploring Tokyo, especially the vibrant streets of Akihabara, was a treat for technology enthusiasts like ourselves. The attention to detail in their innovations was impressive. On top of that, I indulged in authentic sushi at a local restaurant, which left me in awe of the artistry and precision in Japanese cuisine. I believe these experiences underscore the importance of embracing diverse cultures and appreciating the advancements in our field. It's great to be back and share these highlights with all of you!”



The first speech, while energetic and informal, falls short in a few areas compared to the second version. The second speech is a product of the "Style Exercises" and the improvement is palpable.

Establishing Connection: The second version initiates with an acknowledgment of the audience's well-being, fostering a sense of connection and showing empathy.

Structured Narrative: While the first speech feels like a random compilation of experiences, the second one is more structured and purpose-driven. It provides a smooth transition from personal experiences to broader implications.

Professional Tone: The second speech exhibits a more professional tone, while retaining a touch of personal engagement. It avoids colloquial language, thus making it more suitable for a diverse range of audience.

Value Proposition: Unlike the first speech, the second one drives home a clear message by underlining the importance of embracing diverse cultures and appreciating advancements in a specific field. This imparts a value to the audience, making the speech more meaningful.

Concluding Remarks: The second speech concludes on an engaging note, expressing enthusiasm in sharing experiences with the audience. This promotes a sense of community and shared learning, ending the speech on a positive and impactful note.

Artful Descriptions: In the second version, the speaker's experiences are described with greater artistry. This descriptive language serves to captivate the audience's attention and make the story more immersive. Phrases like "rich culture", "vibrant streets", and "artistry and precision in Japanese cuisine" give the audience a more vivid picture of the speaker's experiences.

Balancing Personal and General: The second speech beautifully balances personal anecdotes and general insights. While the personal story makes the speaker relatable, the insights make the message relevant to the audience. This can enhance the audience's engagement and investment in the speaker's narrative.



Through the comparison of these two speeches, we've delved into the profound impact that the "Style Exercises" can have on the ability to communicate effectively. The transition from a casual anecdote to a well-structured, compelling narrative that not only entertains but also educates and resonates with your audience is testament to the power of this tool.

The Style Exercises can improve the way you speak and think, whether you're presenting to an audience, leading a team, or just taking part in everyday conversations.

But the potential applications go far beyond personal use. If you're a trainer, a coach, or in any role that involves guiding others, this tool is indispensable. It can help you deliver your content in a more engaging manner, foster better understanding and retention in your trainees, and ultimately, lead to better outcomes in your training or coaching sessions.
