The Relevance Factorâ„¢
Shorten Your Time Frame To Influence Audiences to Take Action
When you speak to an audience--no matter the size--on average only 25 percent of what is being said is heard by the audience. Why 25 percent? Every person has a personal radio station tuned in: WIIFM, or Whatâ€™s In It For Me. As humans, each of us is an individual; as an individual we have our own interests and personal idiosyncrasies. And, because of this perspective, we seek that which is interesting and important to us individually.At any point in time, people have issues/interests on their minds, including, family, work obligations, their health, and a bias toward the speaker (not an all-inclusive list). These are the barriers for a speaker or the leader in a meeting. He or she is faced with these barriers when in front of a team or in front of the room of a sizeable audience. This is why it is imperative for speakers to understand The Relevance Factorâ„¢. If not speaking to The Relevance Factorâ„¢ of the respective audience, then the natural response is resistance by individuals: opposing forces to hearing the messages.
