Speakers: Authenticity Connects. . .

Candidates are debating and delivering speeches.
Speakers can learn from comments like these:
• “He’s Authentic.”
• “She’s scripted, and not Authentic.”
• “That candidate is connecting with me.”
• “I have no confidence in them.”
• “I trust them.”
• “They don’t seem natural when giving their stump speeches.”

Those perceived as Authentic make a better connection with potential voters than those regarded as not being genuine. If we think they are faking their Authenticity, we don’t trust them. This holds true for speakers, also. If the audience doesn’t believe and trust you, they’ll tune you out.
