Once & For All: Stopping Sexual Harassment at Work

Speaking Effectively to 1 or 1000

Speaking Effectively to a GroupMost people, even high-powered successful types who are fearless in other aspects of their lives, absolutely dread public speaking. Studies show that public speaking is a top phobia; in fact, it is a recognized medical condition. Considering that public speaking is a highly sought-after workplace skill, it’s a shame so many people avoid it.

If you or any of your employees suffer from a fear of public speaking (or could just use a refresher course), the popular video Speaking Effectively to 1 or 1000 is an extremely helpful and effective training tool.

In the video, host Steve Landesberg and a team of improvisational actors show the most common ways speakers can botch a presentation and what can be done to fix it. The four main components of speaking effectively to an audience of any size are explored. These components are: Mental Effectiveness, Visual Effectiveness, Vocal Effectiveness, and Verbal Effectiveness.

As the various the learning points are presented, the following guidelines for successful speaking emerge:

  • Before making a presentation, visualize the success of your performance and “hear” the applause.
  • Improve enunciation through practice. Using good breath support…speak with a clean, natural voice in front of a mirror.
  • Make eye contact with the audience by focusing on different people in the audience for several seconds at a time.
  • To make gestures more effective, consciously vary them and use them to punctuate different emotions.
  • Always dress in a manner that’s appropriate for the audience.
  • Know as much as you can about the audience so you choose your topic, content, and type of speech accordingly.
  • Remember that being a little nervous is something that can push you toward peak performance, if you’re well-prepared.
