Why is it that some people can speak with impact? Two quick points:
1. Poise. Gruden is very comfortable in his own skin and can speak confidentally about football, coaching and success. He is not intimidated by others because of his own high level of confidence.
2. Passion. Gruden has the Xs and Os of football down pat, but he also has the desire to share the details with athletes, players or viewers. That allows him to engage the listener with a greater focus, making more of an impact.
So, the next time you need to make a speech or engage someone one-on-one, consider how much poise and passion you bring to the table. Step it up just a bit more, and I believe you’ll find yourself having more impact.
