3 Questions To Answer Before You Learn To Speak English

“There are only two types of speakers in the world. 1. The nervous and 2. Liars.” – Mark Twain According to Havard University, 84% people rated the fear of Public Speaking higher than fear of death.

“There are only two types of speakers in the world. 1. The nervous and 2. Liars.” – Mark Twain

According to Havard University, 84% people rated the fear of Public Speaking higher than fear of death. Now you can imagine that you are not alone in this world who is afraid of public speaking.

Therefore, today I want to ask you few questions pertaining public speaking and our communications skills:

1. We have been reading English Books (school syllabus) since our childhood, still we can't speak English? That means if someone tells you to read the newspaper aloud, means it's not going to help you.

2. When you first went to school, were you not speaking Hindi? Yes, you were. Did you learn all Hindi grammar rules before you started speaking Hindi? No. That means if someone tells you to learn grammar rules, it will also not work.

3. Have you ever observe any 3 years old kid, who speaks his/her mother tongue without having enough storage of vocabulary? Observe, how that child does makeshift improvisation & gradually it improves his/her language proficiency. That means, mugging up newer and newer words will also not help you.

Remember, learning to speak is absolutely different than learning to write English.

Reading newspaper can improve your written skills, but it can't improve your spoken English as these articles and news are well drafted and written in written-type fashion. And you have to learn to speak off-hands.

Practicing in front of a mirror will definitely help you but it will give you passive-confidence. There is a huge difference between presenting in front of the audience and practicing alone.

In my next article, I will give you 5 tips to improve your speaking skills.

The art of communication lies in getting your message across as fast and effectively as possible. The amount of noise increasing in the system is the problem for communication.

Noise is generated when unnecessary information is included in the message. This can be in form of irrelevant statements, over use of body language and even pauses and sounds that denote a gap in the communicated message .

For this very reason, it is important to keep your message simple and understandable. Make sure you have a clear idea of what you want to speak about. 

Avoid:

i. Avoid using jargons that are hard to understand for people.

ii. Avoid making sounds to hold the conversation while thinking what to say next.

iii. Avoid trying to sound smart as it might jumble up the whole message and make it more complicated than what it is supposed to be.

Good practice:

i. Speak in a language where even a 4 year old can understand you and comprehend the message being conveyed.

ii. Stop and assess your message beforehand.

iii. Take time to think and formulate message, and then start speaking.

iv. Have a mini strategy for situations where you feel you might face issues.

Communication is the simple art of encoding and decoding information, while maintaining the integrity of the message that is conveyed.

Each one of us desires to have a never ending  and excellent vocabulary as a base to speak English flawlessly and fluently. But, for sure there are blocks and humps which stops us from achieving our motto to become good English Speakers.

I would like to suggest some important points and activities to follow in order to expand and enrich vocabulary to master the language.

1. Know, understand and learn the synonyms and antonyms of the words.

2. Every language has innumerable words which are closely associated. First let us understand the meaning of synonyms and antoyms.

3. Synonyms are the words that have same meaning or nearly exact meaning.

4. Antonyms are the words that have opposite meaning.

Example:  Let us take the word ABSORB , meaning - to take in  in a natural way.

5. Synonym: Soak, sponge, imbibe.

6. Antonym: Renew, replace.

So, if we understand and learn synonym and antonym of the words then, at once we learn and know 6 new words in a shot.

We shall look for more ways to enrich the vocab. in my upcoming lessons.

Power Of Coaching

Story: Fox and the grapes: We all have heard the famous fable about the fox and the grapes in our childhood. A fox was walking through the forest and spotted a bunch of grapes hanging from a tree.

Story: Fox and the grapes:

We all have heard the famous fable about the fox and the grapes in our childhood. A fox was walking through the forest and spotted a bunch of grapes hanging from a tree. Being hungry he jumps at the hanging grapes but misses. He keeps trying and jumps repeatedly, but cannot reach the grapes. Finally, he gives up and goes away saying” The grapes were probably sour anyway”.

Let us stop for a moment and think about this. The fox wanted the grapes and made an effort to reach them. He had the potential and strength to reach them. So what is one thing that could have enabled him to reach those grapes?  What would have made a difference in this situation of him wanting those grapes and he being able to reach them? What do you think?

What can make a difference?

Coaching can make a difference!

“Coaching is unlocking a person’s potential to maximize their own performance. It is helping them to learn rather than teaching them” - Timothy Gallway.

Coaching is a powerful tool that aims at rocketing individual performance and achieve outstanding results.  It also enables an individual to experience transformation and sense of well-being, joy and fulfilment.

Coaching is one of the fastest growing service industries today and Sheila Maher and Suzi Pomerantz state that [ International Journal of Coaching in Organizations, 2003, 1(2), 3-11.] “It is clear that coaching is not a fad and it is not new. Coaching is rooted in a range of philosophies and practices that can be traced back to Aristotle, Buddhist thought, Gestalt theory, and various gurus of ontology and business.”

Coaching is an effectual process that involves a partnership between two people. In the process, there are conversations within a context that leads to awareness, reflections, realisations, actions and results. Coaching is not a motivational tool. It is a process where the coach supports, encourages and challenges you to think differently.

In simple words, coaching encompasses the journey between where you are to where you want to be.

Who is a Coach?

  • A coach is a partner that helps you develop and tap into your strengths, maintain sustained efforts and stay focussed.
  • A coach is a resource that helps you clear your lens and have more clarity in your vision.
  • He is like a sounding board that listens to you from a deeper level as you think through ideas and produce results.
  • A coach is a space that provides stillness as you see different perspectives; attend to your deepest fears and your internal conflicts.

There are different kinds of coaches such as Sports, Fitness, Performance, Life, Executive, Health coach and so on.  Every coach works differently, based on his area of expertise.

What does a coach do?

A coach helps people produce excellent results at work and in life. He believes that people have limitless potential and works with those who are willing to work on themselves and wish to engage in the process of change, transformation and success.

A life coach helps individuals experience a sense of well-being and personal transformation by addressing various areas of their life. What does that exactly mean? Probably this might be a question in your mind. Let me share a couple of examples here.

I had this opportunity to work with a friend of mine. After more than two decades of working in a role, that he claimed was his passion, was suddenly finding a sense of dissatisfaction at work. He believed it was because he was not experiencing the freedom to work the way he wanted.  In the coaching sessions he discovered that he did have the freedom, so where was that sense of dissatisfaction coming from?  As I worked with him, his deeper thoughts unfolded. He realized, he wanted to earn more money, and through the sessions, he clearly saw a belief that was holding him from generating more money. Just knowing what was really causing the struggle within him, set him free.  With this insight, he then created a goal that motivated him and felt purposeful. We then created a plan and structure for him to achieve that. That’s the potential of coaching!

A challenge that one of my clients had was lack of confidence while speaking to people. He was aware that his voice trembled while speaking to people and that he spoke irrelevant matter while answering. Through our coaching conversations and few NLP processes what changed for him was that he started believing in his ideas and thinking. He began focusing on the conversation and not on his internal dialogue or the idea of impressing people. He got muscle into his conversations when he began expressing his own thoughts, insights and ideas. That’s the power of coaching!

Similarly, an Executive Coach helps professionals, leaders, managers to improve their performance at work, achieve organizational goals, progress in their career and find a sense of joy and purpose at work. Here I would like to share one of my significant coaching experiences.

“One of the challenges that I faced as a leader in my organization was the team not maintaining discipline in the processes involving paperwork and response to the internal communication. I struggled for a very long time and had several flight and fight scenes at the office.  But when I worked with a coach, in just one session, I became aware that I was trying to fix a leak where it was not happening. Some other part of the pipeline needed plumbing. That Aha moment threw me into a spiral of actions. The processes smoothened out and today I share the best relation I could imagine with my team.”

We all have limitless potential:

  • Currently, are you looking at achieving some goals? If you are, then do you have clarity about what you truly want? Is it just a hazy image or just a lingering thought in your head as a “maybe” plan?
  • Is there any challenge that you are facing and think that this is how it will be? Really? Does it have to? Think again!
  • Have you started working on something and are wondering if your direction is right?
  •  Do you wish to bring change in some areas of your life, certain behaviours, or an emotion, but are not sure how? If you are experiencing moments like these, then you can certainly benefit from coaching.

In fact ”you” are the most powerful ingredient that makes coaching brilliant. When you step into the coaching space with an intention and single-mindedness of working on your growth, improvement, success and fulfilment, magic happens. What you focus on expands and gets stronger!

So looking back at our story of the fox reaching out to his grapes as a metaphor, do you think he needed a coach? I don’t think he needed one. But if he truly wanted those grapes and wished to expand his potential a notch higher, then a coach would have certainly enabled him to tap into it.

“You don’t have to be great to get started, but you have to get started to be great” - Les Brown.

Move, jump, leap and keep that smile on!
