Crush your fear of speaking

  1. 1. How-to ManualCRUSH YOUR FEAR OF SPEAKING
  2. 2. Preparation Topic sentence What is it you want to share with your audience If nothing else what you want then to take away from your talk
  3. 3. Reasons for Speaking Every time you open your mouth to speak, find your purpose for doing so Ask yourself What my message How can I say it most effectively Do I need evidence, examples or facts and figures to make my message more credible
  4. 4. To persuade Is it to convince? Get the facts out
  5. 5. To Debate To show of how much you know To out manoeuvre your opponent Do your research, able to think on your feet, speak with conviction use inflection of your voice to your advantage
  6. 6. To share If you want to share your thoughts about something you heard, saw or experienced. It’s best to speak from the heart. To be effective make what you are sharing relevant to the listener And then get to the point quickly and leave room for questions . Sharing becomes a dialogue and more satisfying.
  7. 7. To Motivate Start with something inspiring – the story of someone who has achieved in spite of fears Storytelling connects to the heart. It is one of the (if not the most) effective ways of communicating. Master storytelling and you master the art of communication.
  8. 8. To Teach When you have to teach you are looking at a more formal structure of communicating.
  9. 9. I have a topic Now what? Gather all the information about the topic Research more information than you will need Become familiar with it
  10. 10. Write it Write your speech out in full Make sure it is perfect and ready for print if needs be Read that speech over several times until you are familiar with it
  11. 11. Put the speech away Give the speech to yourself in front of the mirror Talk the speech in your head on your way to work, either walking, driving or running, talk it out The more you do so, the more familiar you become, you will find that you are bringing in more information than you have in your speech, that’s good. You are internalising it.
  12. 12. Voice Don’t shout Don’t yell at people Find your nice mellow voice, rich with texture People listen to a calming voice better than a strident one.
  13. 13. Lights Camera Action Dress in something that makes you feel good 100% When you feel you look your best you are more relaxed and confident, people see that. Imagine that the people you are talking to want the best for you Imagine they are all sending you love and kisses Walk boldly to the podium feel the love
  14. 14. Knock their socks off Have your full speech as well as your cue cards. Use your cue cards and if you stumble then use the text Always begin by extending love to your audience either internally or out loud E.g. I am excited to be here tonight in the company of all you beautiful people (sounds cheesy but it works) .....
  15. 15. The beginning of yourJourney Find reasons to speak often In Church, Mosque, Temple, at work If you are going to a meeting prepare yourself and be ready to contribute with questions or suggestions. Read different newspapers, listen to shows and gather intelligence. Speaking will become second nature. You will crush your fears in no time.
  16. 16. The Clincher Mediate and visualize yourself in front of the audience Project love radiating from your heart to their hearts Feel the love they return to you and hold it, lock it into your subconscious Always have the belief that the audience want you to succeed and send you their love There’s no way you can fail or disappoint. Break a LEG (Lift excellence gracefully)
