December is a fabulous month to prepare your list of New Year’s resolutions. Are you still struggling with a public speaking fear? It is the number one fear in North America.
Our self esteem and self worth are very fragile and one negative experience in public speaking can last in our minds for years. Experiential learning is a very strong and positive force within us. If we experience amazing feedback and feel good about a presentation we give, the outcome can also reinforce every future speech. Coaching and Training in public speaking can transform the fearful presenter to fearless.
Public speaking can be learned. It is not a talent that we are born with but can be nurtured throughout our lives. Self confidence is your basic sense of competency. It is your belief that you can do and excel at anything. People with low sense esteem believe that they lack the capability and see themselves as a failure.
Always be proactive rather than reactive. Invest in the time to learn the skills and strategies for outstanding public speaking. Studies have shown that excelling at public speaking can build strong social networks and offer great employment opportunities.
Leadership is founded on public speaking excellence. Direct your energy 100% toward success.
After a presentation, do a “reality check”. Ask yourself “What’s three things that went well? What are three things that could be improved upon next time?
Allow yourself the chance to feel good.
Be proactive and register with Speaker Skills to transform you into a fearless and fabulous professional level public speaker.
