According to a survey, people fear "public speaking" more than death. And the no.1 fear in the world is public speaking. The term best used to describe it is known as “Glossophobia.”

Can you imagine that people fear public speaking more than height or insects? That’s crazy. I mean just stand in front of bunch of people and open your mouth. That’s it. What’s there to fear? If you are thinking like that, then you are probably wrong. People hate speaking in front of people and they can make any excuses in order to prevent that. Trust me because I have done that too. And after successfully overcoming this stupid fear and speaking confidently, I identified few reasons why we fear public speaking so much.

We are humans and humans are social animals. We love showing our good things to others, sharing our progress to others and we even love sharing weaknesses of others but, we hate sharing our weaknesses and failures with others. We want others to love us. We want others to only see good things about us. And when that doesn’t happen, we are sad, angry. So we try to avoid those circumstances and public speaking is one such activity where we have to speak in front of group of people and we are constantly worrying about what others will think about us if we made a mistake, if we made a fool out of ourselves.

We need validation from people but this same validation is stopping us from becoming a great speaker. When we allow others to judge us or make their opinion about us more than our will to speak what we want, we give away our powers to them. And that my friend, is the biggest reason why we fear public speaking.

So what’s the best way to overcome Glossophobia? I’ll be sharing many tips in upcoming lessons. So stay tuned.

English is an international language so is in demand. Everyone wishes to have command over this language as it opens the door of opportunities. Here we are giving you the tips to help you learn this language super fast. You can be sure about learning English super duper fast if you apply these tips on regular basis. Here we go

  1. Learn the basics – You must learn the basics of this language. It is not that much time consuming. You hardly need 3 months time to master the basics.
  2. Use English in writing and speaking – The more you use English the more confident you will become so start using English in your writing and speaking as much as you can.
  3. Don’t fear making mistakes – If you make mistakes while writing and speaking, it is a sign that at least you are trying. Learn from your mistakes and try avoiding them in your next writing and speaking.
  4. Don’t hesitate taking help – Take the help of those who have command over English. Ask them to guide you wherever it is needed.
  5. Join an institute – If you need professional help, join an institute but make sure you join an institute which is really interested in training you. There are institutes which are just after your money. You must be wise enough to select.  
  6. Take English as a language only – Don’t try to judge your intelligence by looking at English written and spoken skills. Lack of English language doesn’t make anyone stupid and having command over this language is not the guarantee of intelligence. English is just a language. You can learn it for your benefit.
  7. English is not difficult – Throw this myth out of mind that English is difficult. It is the easiest language on earth. You just need to learn the basics and practice it regularly.
  8. Make reading and listening your habit – You can easily learn English if you read daily and listen to songs or anything in English. Regular reading and listening will help you learn English faster.
  9. Watch English programme – Watch English news channels, English Serials, English movies and English songs. Initially you will not able to understand completely but don’t give up. Gradually you will start understanding and enjoying.

Serious Note : English is just a language and it can be learnt But you need to give learning a reasonable time. You can’t master it overnight. Take baby steps because a giant step will just make you fall.

Public speaking becomes a part of everyone’s life sooner or later. Good public speaking skills are highly valued in our society. They can help you to gain respect or even a promotion.

Since most people shy away from the opportunity to speak publicly, there’s not a lot of competition. A little practice can go a long way.

Use these strategies to enhance your presentations:

  1. Video record yourself. Instead of practising in front of your family and friends, use a camera, iPad, or other video recording device. Most cell phones have excellent recording capabilities for this purpose.
  • Pay attention to your voice, body language, and gestures. Are you keeping your head up or are you staring down at your notes?
  1. Over prepare. The most effective way to increase your confidence is to know the material 100%. While very experienced speakers can give a high-quality extemporaneous speech, you’ll benefit greatly from extensive practice.
  • Avoid practising too much in a single session. Ideally, you can spread your practice over several days.

  1. Find a smiling face. You might feel tempted to attempt to win over the person texting on their phone, but you’ll lose that battle 9 times out of 10. Instead, speak to that smiling, nodding, an agreeable face that’s paying attention to your every word. You’ll feel more relaxed and confident.
  2. Keep your audience in mind. You might have a PhD in astrophysics, but if you’re speaking to your son’s 4th-grade class about the solar system, it will be necessary to tone it down. Make your message relevant to your crowd.
  3. Start with a script. Begin with a literal, word for word script. As you learn the information and begin to remember more, move away from the script and rely on your memory.
  • Once you know the information inside and out, you can give your final speech with just a few, bullet-point notes.
  1. Avoid caffeine. You’ll probably be plenty stimulated from the knowledge that you need to give a presentation. There’s little reason to stimulate yourself further by having a few cups of coffee beforehand.
  2. Slow down. If your speech is the proper length for your allotted time, avoid rushing. It’s not a race.
  • It makes your audience uncomfortable when you speak in a rushed manner. You’ll also run out of breath and be more difficult to understand.
  • Allow for natural pauses. Speak at a comfortable pace and everyone benefits.
  1. Begin with the purpose in mind. What is the purpose of your presentation? Is it to inform, persuade, or entertain?
  • When your presentation is over, what thoughts should be running through the mind of your audience?
  1. Be yourself. This is challenging but necessary. Before you can sell your message, it’s necessary to sell yourself. The best way to sell yourself is to be authentic. Have the courage to be yourself. People believe what you say when they believe in you.
  2. Be present before your presentation begins. It’s easy for your mind to run wild before you speak. Keep your attention focused on your surroundings. Try to find all the people with red hair or those wearing the colour blue. Listen to the sounds in the room.

Public speaking can provoke anxiety, but it’s an important skill to master. Public speaking skills are prized in the workplace and impact your ability to influence others. Make an effort to master the ability to speak to a group. Join a local Toastmasters group and practice, practice, practice. You’ll be glad you did.

Introduction:

We admire great public speakers. Most of us have a desire to be able to speak with confidence in front a huge gathering but seldom are able to do that, right? 

What does it take to learn the art of public speaking? I will introduce the key components of public speaking in this brief lesson.

Public Speaking:

Many of us tend to think that public speaking means delivering a speech to huge number of people which is not actually true. Addressing a gathering of 2 or more people can be termed as public speaking.

Key Components (4Ps) of Public Speaking:

There are 4 components which can be called 4 Ps of public speaking.

1. Purpose: Always give good thought on what is the purpose of the speech. There might be many different purposes of a public speaker like motivating the audience, selling something, providing instructions etc. 

2. Preparation: One might think that great public speakers need no preparation for a public speech. It is absolutely wrong. Even the greatest of speakers do a lot of preparation to ensure that they deliver an effective speech. Starting with the dress they are going to wear to the place where they will be standing to deliver the speech, every such minute detail is prepared well in advance.

3. Practice: It takes a lot of practice to deliver a impactful public speech. If not anything else, practice in front of the mirror imagining huge audience and probable questions that might come up during the actual delivery.

4. Presentation: This is the actual delivery of the speech. Presence of mind, humour, confidence play a vital role when it comes to the actual delivery or presentation in front of audience.

Hope this brief lesson has helped you in understanding some basics on public speaking.

Over the years, we’ve sought to develop a process for helping inexperienced presenters to frame, practice, and deliver talks that people enjoy watching. I’m convinced that giving a good talk is highly coachable. In a matter of hours, a speaker’s content and delivery can be transformed from muddled to mesmerizing. The lessons I’ve learned are surely useful to other presenters—whether it’s a CEO doing an IPO road show, a brand manager unveiling a new product, or a start-up pitching to VCs or a student learning the skills of public speaking.

Frame Your Story

There’s no way you can give a good talk unless you have something worth talking about. Conceptualizing and framing what you want to say is the most vital part of preparation. When I think about compelling presentations, I think about taking an audience on a journey. A successful talk is a little miracle—people see the world differently afterward. The most engaging speakers do a superb job of very quickly introducing the topic, explaining why they care so deeply about it, and convincing the audience members that they should, too. You need specific examples to flesh out your ideas. So limit the scope of your talk to that which can be explained, and brought to life with examples, in the available time. Many of the best talks have a narrative structure that loosely follows a detective story. The speaker starts out by presenting a problem and then describes the search for a solution. There’s an “aha” moment, and the audience’s perspective shifts in a meaningful way.

Plan Your Delivery

Once you’ve got the framing down, it’s time to focus on your delivery. There are three main ways to deliver a talk. You can read it directly off a script or a teleprompter. You can develop a set of bullet points that map out what you’re going to say in each section rather than scripting the whole thing word for word. Or you can memorize your talk, which entails rehearsing it to the point where you internalize every word—verbatim.

My advice: Don’t read it, and don’t use a teleprompter. It’s usually just too distancing—people will know you’re reading. And as soon as they sense it, the way they receive your talk will shift. Most people go through what I call the “valley of awkwardness,” where they haven’t quite memorized the talk. If they give the talk while stuck in that valley, the audience will sense it. Their words will sound recited, or there will be painful moments where they stare into the middle distance, or cast their eyes upward, as they struggle to remember their lines. This creates distance between the speaker and the audience. Getting past this point is simple, fortunately. It’s just a matter of rehearsing enough times that the flow of words becomes second nature. Then you can focus on delivering the talk with meaning and authenticity. Don’t worry—you’ll get there.

Develop Stage Presence

For inexperienced speakers, the physical act of being onstage can be the most difficult part of giving a presentation—but people tend to overestimate its importance. Getting the words, story, and substance right is a much bigger determinant of success or failure than how you stand or whether you’re visibly nervous. And when it comes to stage presence, a little coaching can go a long way.
Perhaps the most important physical act onstage is making eye contact. Find five or six friendly-looking people in different parts of the audience and look them in the eye as you speak. Another big hurdle for inexperienced speakers is nervousness—both in advance of the talk and while they’re onstage. People deal with this in different ways. Many speakers stay out in the audience until the moment they go on; this can work well, because keeping your mind engaged in the earlier speakers can distract you and limit nervousness.

Plan the Multimedia

With so much technology at our disposal, it may feel almost mandatory to use, at a minimum, presentation slides. By now most people have heard the advice about PowerPoint: Keep it simple; don’t use a slide deck as a substitute for notes (by, say, listing the bullet points you’ll discuss—those are best put on note cards); and don’t repeat out loud words that are on the slide. If you have photographs or illustrations that make the topic come alive, then yes, show them. If not, consider doing without, at least for some parts of the presentation. And if you’re going to use slides, it’s worth exploring alternatives to PowerPoint.

Putting It Together

The tricky part about rehearsing a presentation in front of other people is that they will feel obligated to offer feedback and constructive criticism. Often the feedback from different people will vary or directly conflict. This can be confusing or even paralyzing, which is why it’s important to be choosy about the people you use as a test audience, and whom you invite to offer feedback. In general, the more experience a person has as a presenter, the better the criticism he or she can offer. The single most important thing to remember is that there is no one good way to do a talk. The most memorable talks offer something fresh, something no one has seen before. The worst ones are those that feel formulaic. So do not on any account try to emulate every piece of advice I’ve offered here. Take the bulk of it on board, sure. But make the talk your own. You know what’s distinctive about you and your idea. Play to your strengths and give a talk that is truly authentic to you.
