I blame my mom…

Family, Music No Comments by Tom Krieglstein

The Google driving directions said it was almost five hours north from Denver, CO to Chadron, NE. What’s north of Denver you ask? Turns out, really not much until you actually get to Chadron. The space in-between could be considered the southern tip of big sky country with loads of land and basically no one. […]

Digging This Song Right Now V.26 – Paloma Faith – Only Love Can Hurt Like This

Music No Comments by Tom Krieglstein

Her voice is so powerful. I wish I had that ability when I sing. I used to practice my signing, but even then, nothing nearly as powerful as her voice. Take a moment to listen to her singing this song live and you’ll hear it’s not just fancy editing that’s making her voice powerful. She […]

Digging This Song Right Now V.25 – Matt Simons – Catch & Release

Music No Comments by Tom Krieglstein

When I was in college, I got the opportunity to study in Berlin, Germany for a semester with the Goethe Institute. While there, my cousin, Marco, would take me to some of the cool trance music clubs. As I sat there sipping a beer and listening to the trance music, I realized I was way […]

Digging This Song Right Now V.24 – Hezekiah Walker – Every Praise

Music No Comments by Tom Krieglstein

When people ask me what my favorite band is, they seem to have a shocking surprise when I tell them I don’t have one. I’ve never been loyal to one band, but rather, I’m loyal to songs. I may like five songs off a band’s album, but the rest I don’t care for and I move […]

Speaking Tip/Trick #12 – How to Pick the Best Audience Members for Participation (Pre-Screening)

Speaking, Speaking Tips No Comments by Tom Krieglstein

Nothing can tank, or pick up, the flow of a speech more than audience participation. When picked well, one would almost think you planted the person in the audience. But when picked badly, it leaves you, and the audience, in an awkward state. In my Dance Floor Theory Leadership Training, I know 20 minutes into […]

Jealous of Musicians

Music, Speaking No Comments by Tom Krieglstein

I’ve long been jealous of the feeling that musicians can give to their fans through their songs. Sometimes all it takes is for the opening note of the song and instantly their fans are taken to another world and feel like they are on cloud 9. Just listen to the passion and energy in the […]

Speaking Tip/Trick #5 – Their Music, Not Your Music

Speaking Tips No Comments by Tom Krieglstein

I know that when the Guns N’ Roses’ song “Sweet Child O’ Mine” comes on, your blood starts flowing and the energy in your whole body goes up. But just because it’s happening to you, doesn’t mean it’s happening to everyone else in the room. If you’re not the same age as your audience assume […]
