GLOSSOPHOBIA
By: Alaa Moustafa
@alaamoustafa
@alaamoustafa
GLOSSOPHOBIA
The word come from the Greek root “glossa” (which means
‘tongue’) and the root “phobia” (which means ‘fear’)
FEAR OF PUBLIC SPEAKING
@alaamoustafa
REMEMBER
.. the days of giving presentations in front of your class?Or
maybe you have to give them for work.
@alaamoustafa
WHAT WAS YOUR
FEELING?
Complete loss of voice
Heart Pounding
Hands Shaking
Forehead Sweats
Dry Mouth
Stomach Hurts
Lack of oxygen
Shallow Breathing
@alaamoustafa
STAGE FRIGHT
Why do we get stage fright? Stage fright comes from nerves and the
fear of being judged.When many eyes are looking upon you and
watching your every move, it is easy to feel like you are going to mess
up.
@alaamoustafa
Public speaking is considered the
greatest fear a person can have, even
greater than the fear of death.
YOU ARE NOT
ALONE
@alaamoustafa
WHO NEEDS
TO SPEAK IN PUBLIC?
Politicians? Entrepreneur?Teachers?
PUBLIC SPEAKING IS A PUBLIC AFFAIR
@alaamoustafa
IS IT TOO LATE?
Myths: Its too late now to go and learn the basics
It should have been taught to us in our school days
STOP giving EXCUSES and work for a better future
@alaamoustafa
THE GAME IS IN YOUR
BRAIN
@alaamoustafa
"If you feel like you shouldn't be somewhere:
Fake it. Do it not until you make it—but until you become it.“
—Amy Cuddy atTEDGlobal 2012
@alaamoustafa
ELEMENTS OF ANY
TALK
Audience | Speaker | Content
@alaamoustafa
KNOW YOUR
AUDIENCE
@alaamoustafa
AUDIENCE
FEELINGS
Your audience may be more SCARED than you
You have KNOWLEDGE the audience wants.
@alaamoustafa
AUDIENCE
FEELINGS
The audience wants you to SUCCEED.
They feel brilliant for ATTENDING
@alaamoustafa
THE CORE IS THE
SPEAKER
@alaamoustafa
FIGURE OUT
WHAT SCARES YOU
Investigate your fears by making a list of the specific things
that make you feel anxious or afraid.Then make a
corresponding list of ways you can cope with or address
these fears.
@alaamoustafa
BREATHE
DEEPLY
Practice breathing deeply and slowly.Think yoga style—
breathe deeply while you’re practicing, before you go on
stage, and during your speech.
@alaamoustafa
WARM UP
YOUR BODY BEFORE
SPEAKING
Exercise reduces tension and helps you concentrate. Getting a little bit
of physical activity before your speech will calm you and help you get
rid of excess nervous energy.Try taking a walk outside, doing arm
circles, or stretching gently.
@alaamoustafa
PRACTICE
PRACTICE .. PRACTICE
Formal practice before a speaking event will help you feel more
confident about what you’re going to say and how you’ll say it. But
informal practice in social situations will also help you conquer some
of your speaking anxiety and fears.
@alaamoustafa
VISUALIZE
SUCCESS
Picture yourself succeeding and having fun. Close your eyes
and do a mental rehearsal of your speech once or twice before
you deliver it.
@alaamoustafa
VISIT THE
SPACE
Get as many details as you can about the room, the audience,
the equipment, your time constraints, etc.
@alaamoustafa
PLAY WITH THE
WORST
SCENARIO
What’s the worst thing that could happen?What will you do if
that does happen? Often, even the worst possible situation
isn’t as bad as you think.
@alaamoustafa
"If you feel like you shouldn't be somewhere:
Fake it. Do it not until you make it—but until you become it.“
—Amy Cuddy atTEDGlobal 2012
