John Bates On Making Your Communication As Mighty As Your Ideas

Scale Up With Nick Bradley

As business owners, effective communication is paramount in ensuring that our messages are received, translated and implemented. But many find their grand ideas stymied by an inability to better communicate them, leading to frustration and unnecessary challenge. Joining Nick this week is John Bates, founder of Executive Speaking Success, and a man who has helped countless leaders and executives to dynamically improve their business results through his unique communication education and training, based in the fundamental evolutionary biology and neurophysiology of human communication, connection and interaction. KEY TAKEAWAYS When we are given opportunities to speak, we should prepare rigorously. We may not always be aware of what can lead from engagements. Treat every opportunity as special. Leadership is a function of great communication, and great leadership is a function of great communication. The reason why formats such as TED work so well is because they understand this, and give their people the chance to reach others through tried and tested means. Structure can have an enormous impact on the way we reach others. The "in media res" technique plants us squarely in the action, and provides a hook that draws people into the rest of the message. There are certain markers that we can provide, which allow another person to realise that a story is being told to them. This affects them on a chemical level and makes them more receptive. BEST MOMENTS 'I call it the "Valley Of Awkwardness"' 'If I started at the beginning, it would have been a very different experience for people' 'That moment deserves preparation and practice' 'Our brains release the same chemical we release when we expect to get a reward' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up with Nick Bradley: scaleup.vip/podcast Scale Up Your Business, coaching/consulting: https://suyb.global To download a free gift from Nick - The 5 Reasons Why Your Business Will Never Get To 8-Figures ... How To Fix It Fast! - https://www.scaleupmastermind.com/free-guide1 Take the SUYB Predictable Growth Assessment™, to measure your current business performance and show you where to focus next to get to where you want to be: https://scaleup.vip/PredictableGrowthAssessment Executive Speaking Success - https://executivespeakingsuccess.com ABOUT THE HOST  Nick Bradley is a renowned entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and business growth expert.

From Nasa to Dolph Lundgren - John Bates talks about helping people to tell their stories with impact

Dot to Dot Behind the Person

From Utah to LA, a band member to a Silicon Valley founder, a return to Utah and becoming an extraordinary guide to leaders on public speaking and beyond John has had and continues to have such an interesting journey. This week I make a few bad jokes about my height and being the pinnacle of John's career (if you know me, you also know this is the last thing I'd ever think but it I worry it may get lost in the English sarcasm). Unlike me John tells some genuinely funny stories and even shares his brilliant impression of Snoop Doggie Dog. John quotes back something he was told years ago -  "John if you get up on stage and you have your attention on yourself then you have your attention on a minor ball of petty concerns that have no real interest to anyone but you. However you get up onstage and you have your attention on your audience and the difference that you're going to make for them and the difference they are going to make with the people in their lives because of it well now you have your attention on something worth thinking about." We chat about a wonderful guy who John works with and I've got to know a little - a Senator who has flipped his belief system following a number of years helping out in a juvenile detention centre.  Howard is now deeply passionate about enabling kids from all backgrounds with the skills to reach reading age before they come into school, helping those who are disadvantaged to start on a more even playing field. For more on this amazing initiative go to:https://www.waterford.orgJohn relays the experience of not only training astronauts at NASA but also getting a 40 min phone call from space and his time spent helping Dolph Lundgren. I'm so chuffed to have met John and I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy him too. For John's book go to:https://www.amazon.com or https://www.amazon.co.ukAnd for more about him:https://executivespeakingsuccess.com For my book which we refer to a couple of times go to:https://bit.ly/MirrThinkhttps://bit.ly/MirrorUSACanhttps://bit.ly/2ylrc7HAnd for my other book: https://bit.ly/DefiningYou2ndEdhttps://amzn.to/2lFMwOrConnect with me on:Instagram:www.instagram.com/fiona_murdenTwitter:https://twitter.com/fionamurdenFacebook:https://facebook.com/fionamurden

Revisiting the team name conversation, discussing Jonathan Allen's future and interviewing rookie tight end John Bates

Washington Football Talk: NBC’s Washington Commanders Podcast

To begin this Washington Football Talk, JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey once again hone in on the franchise's never-ending name search, which was once again in the news this past weekend. That leads to a fun review of an infamous interview JP had on this very show last year with the guy who trademarked a lot of potential names. After handling that, the trio shifts focus to Jonathan Allen's future, wondering if he's due for an extension soon. And to close, they toss to their recent minicamp chat with rookie tight end John Bates, who explains what a productive first year in the league looks like for him and tabs who'd be the best javelin thrower out of JP, Mitch and Pete. If you like podcasts where things fall apart within the first two minutes and Mitch's burner account actually proves to be useful, then this is the episode for you.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
