So much of what I have learned in my acting classes, scene studies, voice and speech training, and performances on stage and screen, informs the way I coach my clients in their communication. Below is a short video in which Charlie Sandlan, one of Maggie's primary teachers at The Maggie Flanigan Studio, talks about emotion, behavior, and process. These concepts - which I translate into useful techniques, tools and strategies for speaking - are key in the success of my clients.
Most important to both the acting and public speaking process is what Charlie says about emotion as a side-effect or symptom of good crafting and preparation. The emotion in acting of which he speaks is much like the dynamism, credibility and energy most people seek to project in their spoken communication.
