Curing the Cold Call Jitters

You look at the telephone for a long time. You know there are potential clients you could call. In fact, you’ve had a list on your desk for weeks. Yet you have taken no action. Why?

Because you are afraid of cold calling.

You have plenty of company. Even some seasoned sales professionals wish they could simply show up for appointments, though they know that approach won’t usually work.

So what if you could hear from the “Cold Calling Authority,” who could help you overcome your reluctance to telephone those you don’t know? Plus, tell you how to succeed.

Fortunately, you can. Watch my interview with Matthew Lampros on my “Biz Communication Show,” featured above.

You will welcome his recommendations for changing our thinking about calling unknown prospects, which will generate changed actions and measurable results.

You Can Control Stage Fright–Get a Professional Coach

Communicate with Poise, Power, and Persuasion

YOU CAN CONTROL YOUR STAGE FRIGHT–
GET A PROFESSIONAL COACH

Stage fright—is that the traumatic, almost paralyzing sensation you feel when you’re scheduled to give a speech?

If so, you have plenty of company. When I started teaching Speech Communication at the University of Georgia, every class included plenty of students who dreaded the day they would face their classmates to give a speech.

Years later, I became the “Biz Communication Guy.” Every week I have heard business leaders at every level talk about how much they feared speaking.

PROFESSIONAL COACHING HELPS YOU CONTROL STAGE FRIGHT
Here’s one of the recommendations I make to everyone who wants to gain what I call “poise, power, and persuasion” when they speak:


Get instruction from a professional coach!

GIVING SPEECHES FRIGHTENED ARIEL
I’ll introduce you now to Ariel Cushnie, who has just become Food and Beverage Attendant at the Grove Resort and Spa in Orlando, Florida.

In her words:

“I used to hate public and presentation speaking for such a long time; I would shake, stutter, and speed talk to get it over with.”

HOW A SPEECH COACH HELPED HER
Ariel took action. To quote her again:

“Then, I took a public speaking class in my freshman year of college and LOVED it; it really taught me techniques to overcome my fears and I would later join an on-campus leadership organization where my primary role was to give speeches and presentations to students; now I feel comfortable speaking in front of anyone!”

Having viewed my Web site, she added: “I like that your company focuses on that aspect of communication.”

Managers–Leave That Meeting and Circulate!

During my two decades in management, I saw many managers–even at the CEO level–practically become hermits. They isolated themselves from their employees. This practice lowered credibility, morale, teamwork, and productivity.

This brief video gives specific examples, and tells you how to become more visible, more respected, and more of a true leader.

Tragic Times Require Constructive Communication

Dawn Echols and I enjoyed chatting after I interviewed her on my “Biz Communication Show.”

2017 WAS A CALAMITY PACKED YEAR–SO WE NEED THE ADVICE OF A PROFESSIONAL COUNSELOR

As 2017 ends, we can easily recall dozens of tragic events that shocked the world–generating fear, pessimism, and sadness. Among them:
–Houston Texas floods
–Puerto Rican hurricane
–California fires
–Las Vegas Strip sniper shooting
–Mexico City earthquake

World wide, thousands of homes suffered destruction, and people lost loved ones as well as their possessions. Bombarded daily by news about these catastrophic calamities, how did anybody keep composure–or even sanity?

The best advice I heard came from a professional counselor, Dawn Echols. Join us in this interview–on the “Biz Communication Show”–to benefit from her powerful perspective:

Check Your Assumptions Before Taking Action

Life as a graduate student at Ohio University would have been demanding enough my first year without that inconsiderate neighbor in the building behind me. Every night while my wife and two small children were trying to get to sleep, this guy took his dog “Deal” out for an evening walk.

For ten minutes or so, that pet owner would call his unleashed dog by name dozens of times, with his loud voice echoing between those two brick buildings, shattering the silence my family needed for sleep.

I BECAME ASSERTIVE
After several weeks of tolerating his annoying and thoughtless behavior, I decided to confront the night walker. I did that one evening when he entered our apartment building, with his dog close by. Without introducing myself or using a courteous tone, I blurted out:
“Look, buddy, I’m fed up with you and that dog of yours. Every night when you take him out for a walk and yell ‘Deal, Deal’ every few seconds, not only do you keep my family awake, you upset us so much we can’t calm down when you take your mutt Deal back inside. Enough is enough. Get the message?”

He looked startled. I understood why when he answered, “Hey, man, you’re complaining to the wrong guy. This is my first time here. I’m just visiting a friend on second floor in that other building.”

Of course, my tone changed. I apologized. Even this long afterward, I remember blushing too.

APPLYING THE COMMUNICATION LESSON I LEARNED
As I recall that embarrassing blunder today, I know I’d like to have a couple of minutes to talk with the prominent individuals who create national and even international news daily by making statements based on assumptions—assumptions not supported by facts.

Yet because I won’t have an opportunity to challenge their baseless statements, renowned public figures will just keep saying they “misspoke,” “misremembered,” or had their remarks “taken out of context.”

Oh, you’ll notice I haven’t named any of the culprits. My guess is you have identified at least a dozen of them already.

Hold a Conversation With Your Audience

Do you wish you had more confidence when you faced an audience? Then read the advice I gave to a member of my audience.

QUESTION FROM AN AUDIENCE MEMBER
When I ended my hour-long seminar about the best language to use with customers, I asked the participants “Anybody have any questions?”

Without hesitation, one person spoke up. “Nobody would call me shy,” she said, “at least not in a one-on-one conversation. But when it comes to giving a speech, it’s impossible for me to face a group with any confidence at all. Can you offer just one quick tip that will help me overcome my fear of public speaking?”

MY ANSWER ABOUT STAGE FRIGHT CONTROL

I answered: “My best advice is to have a conversation with your audience. You’re comfortable talking with one person. That same down-to-earth, easygoing, poised attitude and approach will work whether you are sharing your thoughts with one listener or one hundred or one thousand.” Next, I told her briefly about a famous speech coach who had worked with nationally recognized leaders in politics, television, sports, and business. The most successful ones, he observed, never changed their mode of presentation. They took their low-key person-to-person style into radio and TV studios, press conferences, and speeches to huge audiences.

I’LL SAY THE SAME THING NEXT TIME
I’m sure that somebody who attends my events will ask the same question again. I’ll give the same answer. Engage your audience in lively conversation, and you will greatly reduce your anxiety about giving speeches.
