Estève Pannetier is a consultant, trainer and ritual designer based in Helsinki. He has been TEDx Turku speaker in 2013. Currently he is a very active advocator of the GreenBlueRed communication framework.
The world needs more communication, not more knoledge
The problem is not having enough knowledge but how to communicate and share the knowledge with other people. People are not able to communicate clearly to each other. People needs to communicate more concrete, and less abstract–which is the usual style in science, academia and other fields.
The GreenBlueRed communication framework
Work by Flemish sociologist Théo Cockx. Analyzing deeper than verbal communication, and even deeper than non-verbal communication, there are three intentions of communication: Green, Blue and Red. Blue is talking about yourself (e.g. your knowledge, your fears, your expertise), Green is talking about the other (often called empathy), Red is the shared action (e.g. a sales person trying to close a deal). For more information, read GreenBlueRed.
Usually comedians are people who are very Green on the stage. Other examples are: coaches, therapists, and people whose main duty is to help others.
His stage fright moment
Not in public speaking, but when playing music (drumming) in front of thousands of people. To beat stage fright, Estève recommends to focus on others (your audience).
“If you ask a question you will be fool for a second. If you don’t ask a question you will be fool forever”
Routine to Shine
Every time you meet somebody for the next week, instead of “how are you?” ask a question about the positive emotion that is happenig right now. Examples: what are you greatful about? what’s the best thing that happened to you today?
