This video popped up on my Facebook feed so I surfed over to give it a view. I am struck by a number of elements of presentation and leadership.
Obama’s humility and vulnerability are very much in evidence in this very informal and spontaneous talk to the young people who worked on his campaign. Though I would coach him to:
- Use silence rather than all the heinous verbal filler.
- Keep his eye gaze up toward the audience rather than looking at the floor to gather his thoughts.
The talk shows how speaking with vulnerability from your heart can be extremely powerful. I feel certain the audience was inspired by this talk.
