Christina Canters: Oh, you've trained thousands. I know about like 10,000 call center, uh, sales people a a lot. Um, this is your bread and butter. This is what you're really good at. Yeah. What you were talking about before in terms of your voice going up and then a pause. Uh, I'm trying to, I'm trying to do it, uh, right now, but I'm not sure how effective it's been.

How do you go

Richard Blank: back? You gotta do the quarter second slide.

Christina Canters: The quarter, second slide. Where do you do that at the end of the sentence?

Richard Blank: No, no, no, no, no, no. There's, there's even forced stutters that you can do. I, it's, it's natural speech. The, the greatest form of speech, my friend is sincerity. And so you can tell there's certain subjects where I extend and there's others like I did earlier with that phonetic micro expression reading.

It was almost military. I was just going through it quick and and banging it out. But I believe in the art of speech, there's nothing better than that. The source. So you can expand on your vocabulary with similes. For an example, I don't like to use the word help, I think Okay. That you could adjust it with a certain assisting.

How about a guiding tone? And my favorite Christina is lending a hand sort of approach. Okay. And so just that way alone, you can almost give yourself an advantage in regards to your momentum because you're being sincere, you are standing solid ground and obviously, , you are very excited about what you're talking about.

It could be any subject, but here's the beauty of it. You don't need to sell anything first. Put that stuff away. You and I should be talking about our lives prior to me sharing my products with you. Now, how about this as a salesman, no one ever bats a thousand, but you gotta let me go the 15 rounds, or at least I gotta earn it.

And from an educated point of view, make a decision. If, if I explain everything and. The sweetest peach in you just don't like peaches. I'm willing to accept that, but we're good. Thanks. No, thank you. Click. You didn't even gimme a chance. And so these techniques that I do in the beginning, I'm not lying, I'm not compromising ethics, values of morals, but my goodness, Aaron heard me say the name of your company better than he did.

I answered him well. I got excited. He, I cracked enough codes to transfer the call and I also gave a gift. And so these are the sort. First impressions that you can do that is just natural. There's no money exchanged. All you're doing is just putting your best foot forward and, and that should make for amazing days where you jump clouds, where every call could be 80% the same, but there's still 20% special sauce.

I mean, you do like a certain topping on your ice cream, and I love those sort of things. I always try to look for that on every single.

Christina Canters: Okay, so it's like you, you don't even need to change a lot of how you're talking. It's, it's maybe tweaking a few of those things, especially to start with. So if someone's never even thought about this before, never thought about their tone, or thought about making that great first impression, these are some tiny tweaks that they could start to do in order to make, you know, put the icing on on top.

Like you say,

Richard Blank: Richard had you practice. Yeah, they need to record themselves. No one likes having a sound, but they do realize that they can make that sort of adjustment. Maybe they have certain actors or actresses where they find that their tone of voice is not offensive. They like their rhetoric. They like their delivery.

Some people watch Pacino movies like Sent of a Woman, and they get inspired. Others will see the Wolf of Wall Street or Glen Gar. Glen Rosson get inspired or, or how about, uh, dead Poet Society? You might see a movie or you know, or Patch Adams when you have an inspirational doctor or teacher that could then move you.

And inspire you. And so maybe you study that sort of rhetoric because the market speaks Christina, because as much as movies and you and I have our opinion, if the masses get influenced by a speech or by an action, that is what you should study and, and potentially try to emulate.
