Speaking with Confidence.
Gousie, Gene
This paper offers a summary of two aspects of effective speaking in public, whether it be with co-workers, supervisors, friends, or a group of little-known or unknown others. One aspect of public speaking is the level of sincerity, and the other is the level and variety of skills used. The paper first considers sincerity and then, it discusses the skill areas in depth. It lists the skill areas as: (1) tone of voice; (2) hand gestures; (3) eye contact; (4) on your feet; (5) pace; (6) enthusiasm/knowledge; (7) organization; (8) general and specific; (9) use of language; (10) listening; (11) connecting with the audience; and (12) nervousness. The paper gives suggestions for self-assessment and offers ideas for next steps, including identifying likely strategies and an outline for a communications plan. (CR)
