Paul Huschilt's Expect Everything

And More About Your Audience... Parrots Part II

This edition continues from the last Expect Everything, in which I found myself in front of lots of parrots in El Condor, Argentina.  I had no idea they were watching me until I stumbled, at which point an entire cliff side of parakeets laughed at me.
 
At that point, an important phrase popped into my head – “Know Your Audience”.  In this case, I didn’t even know they were an audience and I had to learn in a silly way that 70,000 eyes were on me.  Each pair of eyes was paying attention to what I did and said.
 
How often in your work life or personal life have you discovered that it matters what you say and do?  Have you sometimes said exactly the right thing that delivered your message spot on at your office or at home?  Or, have you sometimes said exactly the wrong thing because you didn’t read the audience right or not know that they were in fact an audience?
 
Aside from the obvious problems trying to get a message across to a bird colony (which, incidently, likely only understand Spanish), I was reminded that it’s always important to know your audience.
 
This week, whether you find yourself in front of 35,000 parrots or 10 colleagues or your 2.3 kids, think about who is listening or watching, and what it is they need to hear from you.
 
Have a great couple of weeks!
