How often have you:
- Been fearful of presenting in front of people; strangers or otherwise?
- Needed help organizing a Power Point presentation
- Stressed over having to give a speech such as a Maid of Honor, Best Man or Father of the Bride speech?
Why Good Communication Skills Are Critical for Success
In today’s world, the electronic written word rules. No longer do we routinely communicate face to face or on the telephone. Instead, we take to our screens and churn out email after email or send quickly worded texts with no second thought.
But what then happens if we’re suddenly in a social situation that requires conversing with another human, or we need to take on a presentation at work? We stumble over our words, and we don’t put our points across as succinctly as we perhaps should or could.
On a social level, this can lead to feelings of frustration or even anger, as we leave feeling disappointed and awkward. At work, and inability to communicate properly during a presentation or interview can mean we’re not properly rewarded and our merits not properly recognised.
We might have all the ideas, opinions and dialogue in our minds, but we struggle to get it all out. And we’re not alone. Many adults find verbal communication difficult, and for as long as we’re able, prefer to converse by text or email. But as soon as we’re removed from this place of comfort, we struggle, and our confidence takes a tumble.
