Personal Growth & Professional Development
"Life isn't a skill to learn. It's the process of sharing your convictions."
The Salazar Method is a path of self-awareness that addresses the areas of Biology, Belief, Conviction, Identity, Vision, Purpose, and Personal Pitch. This order ensures that there is an organic connection and symmetry between the core of who you are, what you want to achieve, and the value you will ultimately offer the world. Here, "Personal Pitch" refers to the lessons, insights, and unique value that only you can bring. The Method will help you achieve personal fulfillment & professional success by teaching you how to offer your greatest value in return for the opportunity to live the life you envision.
Through The Method, you will get clarity about what you are built to do, the vision that guides you, and the message that defines you. Once we place your natural talents in perspective and identify the convictions that drive you, you will find that your identity becomes stable and vision is your reward. We will then create a message to communicate your unique purpose and value. Your words will be authentic, your pitch compelling, and you will learn to individualize your message to help others understand how your work will improve their quality of life.
Message Development & Presentation Delivery
"Public Speaking isn't a skill to learn. It's the process of sharing your convictions."
We all care about personal topics because they directly relate to our quality of life. And by focusing on this fact, you can ensure that even your most academic ideas are grounded in reality. Yet your words must relate to the human experience because it involves issues that concern us all. But if you miss this point, your words will fail to add any real value. My approach will help you focus on the personal so that your message is meaningful and relevant to those listening. Most importantly, it will teach you to bridge the gap between the ideas you believe in and your audience's own needs and desires.
Additionally, my approach does not rely on memorized speeches or confidence building techniques. It is built on the foundation that public speaking is simply "having a private conversation out loud." And the communication principles at play with an audience are the same that apply when speaking one-on-one: be vulnerable, purposeful, and brave. Despite this perspective, the fear of public speaking is usually magnified by number of people watching. But by learning to speak from your own set of convictions, you will find that your message becomes resilient to criticism and your delivery much more intimate.
Leadership, Team Building & Corporate Culture
"Leadership isn't a skill to learn. It's the process of sharing your convictions."
Many times, entrepreneurs and startup founders are so focused on keeping their new company alive that other key roles are overlooked. They must often be reminded that they need to be just as inspirational as they are functional. And because the vision that drives a company is usually a personal one, there is no one better to share it than those who pushed to make it a reality. The same is true with corporate culture. While some of the most successful companies are known for their innovation, other's evolved thinking on employee relations shifted business paradigms and established the brand.
This brings us to a core distinction that you must never forget: your motives will likely never be the same as those who work for you. But if you make your vision clear enough, you will attract those who want similar things for the world. And they will not just see themselves as employees, but rather as individuals working with you to collectively accomplish a meaningful goal. We will focus on your role as the face and leader of your project or team, and you will learn to leverage the strength of your vision to attract the right team members, create a thriving corporate culture, and inspire clients to action.
