One Communication Skill Jennifer Lawrence Taught Us at the Academy Awards

Jennifer Lawrence at the Oscars | Yaple SyrupAs you probably know, Jennifer Lawrence fell on her way to accepting the Academy Award for Best Actress.

But before you get lost in the hoopla of whether or not she did it on purpose, or whatever else people are saying (blah, blah)…I want you to catch something.

You need to listen closely to what she said:

“Thank you. You guys are just standing up because you feel bad that I fell and that’s really embarrassing but thank you.”

Brilliant.

Jennifer Lawrence’s reaction to falling on her face at the Oscars was a statement of gut-level humility.

And you need to learn this if you are going to communicate well.

No matter how great your oratory skills are.

No matter how wonderful your voice sounds.

No matter how compelling your sales pitch is.

If you fall on your face in the midst of applause, your response must be filled with humility.

Questions:

  1. Do you have an example of this in your own life, business?
  2. Did you watch the Oscars? Were you pleased with the results?

One Response to One Communication Skill Jennifer Lawrence Taught Us at the Academy Awards

  1. Usually when I’ve fallen on my face it was not in the midst of applause, unfortunately. šŸ˜¦ (Nor was it right after winning an Oscar!) If I were Jennifer Lawrence, I’d be like, “I’m not embarrassed about that, I just won an Oscar and you didn’t!” šŸ˜‰ Great post. šŸ™‚
    Love you!
