Public Speaking: Dispelling the Top Ten Myths

Sunday, June 1st, 2014

Public SpeakingThere are many misconceptions about how to speak effectively to an audience. People look for formulas and rules to follow with the belief that public speaking is a mechanical process.  It’s not. It’s a human process. Other people think they could never become a public speaker-they just have no talent. While exceptional speakers usually do have a real talent for it, this doesn’t mean that we all can’t give a speech that will engage our audience and be a personally rewarding experience at the same time.

The more you hold onto old-and often misguided-beliefs about public speaking, the less effective you’ll be on the platform. You must go in with an open mind and, in some cases, work to change your thinking about giving presentations.

With that in mind, here are ten of the most common myths about public speaking-along with some food for thought to help you dispel the myths in your own mind.

1. I’m  not a public speaker. Wrong. Everyone is a public speaker. Every time you speak at a staff meeting, you’re speaking in public.

Public Speaking and Communication SkillsPerhaps you think your career does not entail delivering any presentations. Well, this is where you might be wrong because no matter what your job is, presentation skills ultimately will come into the picture in some ways.

Hence, you are not alone when you say that you do not enjoy delivering presentations and speaking in front of a large audience. Stage fright is inevitable. And yet, speak well and you can rise to the top of your organization or industry. Good presenters are quickly recognized as rising stars and catapult over their “mouth-full-of-sawdust” colleagues.

Communication is a vital key in this new century. All of us will, at some time or another, chair meetings, deliver presentations, training or workshops, either to internal or external customers. It gives an edge to keep abreast with the fast pace of the times. Presentation skills definitely work towards this goal. Maybe you are up for a presentation delivery soon and you need valuable tips. Or perhaps, you see the link between success and effective presentation skills, and have realized that effective presentation skills can be a great ally. (more…)
