Our guest today is focused on objectives.
We get it. We're all focused on objectives. Why should this episode be any different? Here's the trick: much of our advocacy and change efforts are centered in who we are. That's at the core of so much of our diversity and equity work, after all. Today, we ask what happens when we focus our advocacy, our engagement, and our public speaking on what we want, augmenting the message of who we are?
Buzz Mauro is the founder and co-director of the Theater Lab School of the Dramatic Arts in Washington, DC and a Helen Hayes Award nominee. He's also the founder of Center Stage Communications, a consulting firm specializing in the application of acting techniques to the business world. He's the author of three books on applied acting and he's a composer and lyricist who counts among his many works, Alex in Wonderland: A Gender Journey Down the Rabbit Hole.You can find Buzz on his podcast, Public Speaking the Actor's Way.
Approaching the larger questions of advocacy and change from an actor's perspective offers insights into the method and craft of engaging emotion. As you'll hear this week, Buzz is as much about engaging minds as he is about engaging hearts, and we're thrilled he's agreed to share some of his wisdom with us on the show.
