Try Public Speaking

One of the greatest lessons we can learn in life lies in the art of communicating with others in a respectful, persuasive and effective manner. And one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves is a method of improving interpersonal relationships. Skills in communications and public speaking are extremely valuable tools that many of us must use everyday in our personal and professional life and yet training in these areas is widely overlooked. Communications experts and practitioners agree. They will tell you that these skills are the most neglected characteristics in an individual’s abilities.1

Regardless if you are a very shy individual who dreads public speaking or someone who recognizes the value of  self improvement, there is no end to public speaking courses available from a wide variety of sources including continuing education departments, on-line practitioners and recognized professional organizations such as Dale Carnegie to help you.  From an online Dale Carnegie website promotion, we read: “Learn how to build trust and motivate people to act. Gain ways to project an enthusiastic attitude, communicate logically, clearly and concisely; and energize and engage listeners. Discover ways to manage stress and minimize worry, encourage positive thinking, and commit to continuous improvement.”2

There is a wide variety of professional practitioners in your area from which to choose. You have only to spend a little research time on the web to find the course that is right for you. It is a personal investment that promises to return positive dividends.
