When you speak to others, do you moderate your energy? When you are passionate about a topic or cause, do you sound like a megaphone and run over people? It turns people off and reduces your influence. Here’s how to stop this from happening.

Speaking Effectiveness: 3 Reasons to Moderate Your Energy

  1. To avoid overwhelming others. When you are caught up in your purpose and what you are saying, you can overwhelm others. Moderate your energy and vary your pace of speech. It gives people time to breathe and process what you are saying. It increases your speaking effectiveness.

  2. To help people filter what’s important. If you speak at the same intense level the whole time, people can’t hear what’s important. They her noise instead of emphasis. Use pauses and different tones of voice to increase your speaking effectiveness.

  3. To maintain your credibility. Too much energy can makes you look unstable and undermine your credibility. Increase your credibility and influence by using different tones of voice and moderating your pace.


This doesn’t mean you have to be lackluster and lifeless. Energy is good. It engages others. Yet when energy seems like preaching or yelling, it can turn people off. Moderate your energy to draw people in and maintain your credibility.
