I’m sure that you have heard it before. Among the top fears of humans are death and public speaking.
Let’s talk about public speaking.
Without exception, we can all benefit from improving our public speaking skills. It is so much more than making speeches in from of large crowds.
Toastmasters is a great organization to connect with to help you develop a healthy perspective on what public speaking actually entails. It also offers many ways to assist you with your personal development as a leader and as an exceptional communicator.
At work or at play you are constantly called on to engage in some type of “public speaking”.
Leading a workshop or group discussion, a job interview, bumping into an old friend, networking for business or pleasure, toasts or speeches at weddings etc…
It is an inescapable truth that at various points in your life you will be called on to speak about something in public.
Learning to do it well can make you different than many other people. It is a skill that like many others can be acquired and developed over time. Today having a skill that makes you stand out in a crowd is valuable.
Join Toastmasters, take a course or whatever you are comfortable doing. The point is – do something to develop your public speaking skills.
I guarantee that whatever you do – you will never regret improving your public speaking skills. You might even like it.
