  • 1. Patricia Weber Whether it’s trying to deliver bad news, communicating with a customer or giving an idea in a meeting, communicating effectively and confidently rate high in the business world. Year after year when the National Association of Colleges and Employers publishes their findings about the most important skills an employer looks for in a potential employee, communication skills tops the list. And more than topping it, it can be on the list several times. Recently a client called me with a perfect opportunity: deliver a presentations skills 2- day workshop for a group of technical people who need to have both the confidence and the right skills to deliver meeting briefings. They’ll even have the opportunity to be video taped before and after the 2 day event. Don’t we all have to give a briefing at times? As an introvert, who can be often be zapped of energy in a typical office work environment, it’s better to be prepared and think things through before saying what you want. Look at poor Bert in the above video clip! I sure don’t want to communicate like Bert did with Ernie in the above video. Bert is communicating with someone who cannot seem to understand is being said. It almost seems like Ernie was being interrupted. And the further into the message Bert got, the more Ernie threw him off balance. Bert’s confidence started to wane. My approach to training communications for energizing the introvert confidence is to 1) know what you what to say, 2) prepare the message, and 3) say what you know you want to say. It’s an approach giving any introvert the chance to stand tall on the way they prefer to think things through and then top things off with some platform polish. Bert maybe could use those tips instead of getting all flustered. The truth is, you sometimes do communicate with some difficult people. If you are an introvert, what are those verbal communication skills as a business professional that you would like to hone? Just either click on one answer, or write in your own answer, in the less than one-minute poll, just below this post. If you are an extrovert, would you SHARE this post where you can? That will take less than one-minute too.
