This is a No-Nonsense Guide to Nailing Public Speaking With Poise & Confidence. In this course, we will look at tips and techniques that you can use to become a better public speaker.
The Importance of Public Speaking for adults
If you ask most people, they’ll probably say they don’t like public speaking. They may even admit to being afraid of it since the fear of public speaking is a very common fear. Or they may just be shy or introverted. For those reasons, many people avoid public speaking if they can. If you’re one of those people who avoid public speaking, you’re missing out.
Over the years, public speaking has played a major role in education, government, and business. As an adult, having public speaking skills can make or break you whatever field of career you choose.
Some benefits to public speaking include:
Leadership : Leaders especially need to hone their public speaking skills from time to time. They are the ones who set the direction for their team, build a vision for the future, and drive innovation. Therefore, it goes without saying that if you want to be a good leader, you must be an excellent communicator.
Influencing : Win people’s hearts When you’re presenting in front of a whole lot of people, all eyes are trained on you. As a leader, public speaking gives you the opportunity to win the hearts and minds of your people. Thus, a good public speech is a great way to break down the barriers of what was previously considered impossible.
Visibility : Make people follow you A leader without followers is similar to a guitar without its strings – useless. A leader needs to be confident that his people recognize him and his authority. As your team members become familiar with you standing in front of them and delivering a speech, your visibility and authority steadily increases.
Employability: Public speaking boosts your chances for employment and promotions. A clear and persuasive story through presentations is a fundamental job requirement and a necessary component of career success. In the information age, you are only as valuable as the ideas you have to share. Poor presentation skills mean that employee fails to inspire their teams, products fail to sell, and careers fail to soar. That seems like a big price to pay for neglecting such a basic skill that anyone can improve upon.
