Relational Presence is the art and practice of inviting connection with one’s audience before even speaking a single word. It is a foundation for powerful authentic communication in contrast to the disconnected experience of talking “at” your listeners.
Relational Presence is the foundation of the Speaking Circles® method of public speaking, and is also the heart of numerous other communication trainings offered by our Facilitators.
- Grow an authentic compelling speaking presence without performance technique
- Access your natural magnetism to deepen the quality of your business presentations and relationships
- Invite your listeners into a “field of belonging,” causing them to feel seen and heard
- Bring out the best in others by seeing the best in them
The Founder: Lee Glickstein
Lee Glickstein is the authority on authentic presence in public speaking. Paralyzing stage fright led him to a deep understanding of the principles of natural communication through Relational Presence, a term he coined for his method for transforming performance anxiety.
Note: Dr. Samuel Mahaffy independently coined Relational Presence as applied to decision making.
