ENHANCE THE SKILL OF PUBLIC SPEAKING


Public speaking is one the most important aspect while you are in any line of your career. It gives you confidence to share your ideas in public. It is an art which you share your ideas in form of speech in public. The best example I can give is of PM Narendra Modi .He delivers speech without any single mistake and take full command of his action. This is by his public speaking that people are swayed by his words and vote for him. He is intelligent in that part because he uses gujrati when speaking in Gujarat and so on. He is a good orator. In my previous article I have written about the benefits of reading. While reading makes you great ideas in thoughts. You must have good communication skills to elaborate ideas and frame them in public speaking. There I different ways to enhance skills in public speaking one of the ways is to practice it before you deliver speech.

There are times in the organization in the where you take the charge of presentation and you represent your organization. Listening skills is one of the most important required thing for public speaking .I recollect my school days when I go first prize as a student for speaking the tryst with destiny speech written by PT Jawaharlal Nehru. I still remember those lines. During my work in KPIT technologies where you have to interact with US and UK Clients on every Friday on business call they appreciated my quick response. They also told you have good listening skills and your answers are prompt which matches there English. Public speaking boosts self confidence to handle any situation with ease. All born leaders like Nelson Mandala, Sushma Swaraj are good in oratory. While speaking in public they answer well in parliament sessions. However, while good skills can open doors, poor ones can close them. For example, your boss might decide against promoting you after sitting through a badly-delivered presentation. You might lose a valuable new contract by failing to connect with a prospect during a sales pitch. Or you could make a poor impression with your new team, because you trip over your words and don’t look people in the eye.

To be able in public speaking you must refine your ideas pen it down and rehearse before making a public appearance. It is the art where you can see our respected PM, how he delivers speech. His voice is perpetually low but he indulges all the public in participation when he says Bhaiyo aur Bheno  aisa hoga ki nahi then public exclaims ha hoga. Public indulgence is more important aspect of speaking.I am very much fond of Sushma Swaraj because she speaks and answer question to the best of the abilities and stops other parties to refrain from getting into argument.

A good public speaker must be a good listener first of all and share his/her ideas in public without fear. He must have the art of mould the public to connect them-selves in a better way as they are public figure which represents the country. Needless to say that only politician are good speaker but commentator of cricket are also good speaker, they enjoy their work and are paid for it. If you have a fear of speaking then practice it in-front of the mirror. You should be a good motivator of yourselves irrespective of all negative feedback you  must practice and practice the art of public speaking.

 

 

There are some necessary qualities or strategies required for public speaking:

  • Plan appropriately- Before you speak in public think how you will address of what are you going to say. When you do this think about how important is the first page of the book to grab attention where reader might grab you or otherwise it will through the book off, same is the case of public speaking. If you have seen any speakers they start with interesting statistic headline that tells you of what you are talking about. It creates a deep impact in the audience. Planning also helps you to think to answer un-predictable question and answers sessions which are asked by the public. If not entertained properly then this might lead to fuss.
  • Practice- Practice it before making it to public as it makes you perfect. So your boss asks you to make a PowerPoint presentation of the company’s growth in this quarter. So first you will analyze the statistics of the company background and make a graphical representation. And on each slide you practice that how much time you are taking and what to speak. And also how to answer question a decent way which will not hurt the feeling of others. Practice it plenty of times alone, using the resources you’ll rely on at the event, and, as you practice, repeat your words until they flow smoothly and easily.
  • Engage with your Audience: It is one of the most crucial form to engage with the audience because as long as it will be an interactive session or a two way communication the audience will listen. Or else it will create disinterest amongst the audience. The audience is looking for a lively session which ties them till the end of the session. Force yourself to speak slowly and take a deep breath and take charge of the situation. We often fumble after all we are human beings then in that situation take a pause or have a glass of water and continue.
  • Pay attention to your body language: This is also one of the most vital things to pay attention to your body language don’t go overboard or to excited. It might lead you to disturbances and may often go out of track. The few things which must be kept in mind that stand straight,wear a smile on your face, look into the eyes of the people .Instead of using a podium you can walk around and make gestures to engage the audience. Many people prefer to speak behind a podium when giving presentations. While podiums can be useful for holding notes, they put a barrier between you and the audience.
  • Watch recordings of your speeches; Whenever possible try to record your speeches, rehearse the speeches. As it is possible that you may find that in which slide you are moving fast or you need attention. Pay attention to your gesture do they appear natural or forced. And it also much important that how you handled the situation when people ask question or there is disturbance in the audience or you sneeze at times. These are the times when you have to be patient enough to handle any situation at ease. Always think positive side of the argument if you feel that this question must not be answered then plainly says no to it.

 

I hope this article will give a sense of positivity for public speaking without any fear or fumble. And foremost you will enjoy the session which will be interactive that you will like public speaking.
