How is executive communication training beneficial?by Jaques Montegolifier Chartered Accountant Public speaking is one of the tremendous human fears. We conclude this is rooted in our education, where we have been taught to be listeners to ideas, not ‘professors.’
Yet, look at us on the playground, and see a different person and voice, one alive in spirit, body and soul. It is essential to have public speaking training as it helps in complete transformation and makes you an effective communicator as well as an outstanding speaker.
The benefits are enormous. For once we become confident and successful in speaking to larger groups, we can interact with smaller groups and in our relationships. The executive communication training helps bring out a deeper part of ourselves, making us more authentic, interesting, sensitive and appealing to others.
Speaking before others is inevitable
Whether you are a chef or student, a trainer or a CEO, it requires you to speak publicly. Students must give class presentations, chefs need to give directions in the kitchen, trainers need to instruct their team, and CEOs need to head the meetings. When the time comes, the best way to get prepared is to get comfortable with who you are as a speaker to convey effectively.
Be a good leader
Indeed, some of the best speakers of our day are the greatest leaders of our time – besides, their ability to speak, compellingly, and charismatically is a part of how they first became leaders. One's leadership capacity is closely linked to their ability to connect and inspire their audience. Executive communication training trains you to have excellent communication skills and help you to have leadership qualities.
Using your public speaking skills
Consistent reading can make you a better writer; it will improve your skills as a general communicator by practising public speaking. Writing a funny tweet in 140 characters will translate into being able to write witty captions on Instagram. Watching TV can often teach you to understand a video game's graphical spaces better. Practising your public speaking skills will then improve your general oral speech, whether you have a 200-member audience or one-member audience. You are learning the basics of all verbal communication as you learn to formulate and deliver speeches – transparency, coherence, and confidence.
Being able to talk to the public will help you in an interview
Whether you are delivering a speech or the topic of an interview, the centre of attention is one of the most stressful aspects of the process. Since public speaking and the atmosphere of a meeting can often be so close, becoming a self-assured speaker will only improve the confidence in other environments while in the spotlight. If you are used to giving lectures and interviews to dozens or even hundreds of people, you will be prepared for a severe one-on-one or two-on-one interview.
Not only will the practice of public speaking give you confidence in your skills, but you can also feel confident about your real communication skills. Interviewers are always looking for someone who can talk well and do it with assertiveness, whether for job opportunities, internship requests, or volunteer positions.
