A Piece Of Blarney Stone" 10 Ways To Add Force To Your Communication (2)

By Abraham Saleh

5. Jesting around

A little bit of joking can do wonders to lift the tension, or worse boredom when making your speech. That way, you'll get the attention of the majority of the crowd and they'll feel that you're just as approachable, and as human to those who listen.

6. Act similarly like them

Relations is all about coming together with the community. You'll get a lot of thoughts, as well as recognizing what people make them as they are.

7. I, Me, and Myself

Acknowledge it, there are times you sing to yourself in the bathroom. I know I do! Listening to the sound of your own voice while you practice your speech in front of a mirror can help correct the stress areas of your pitch. And while you're at it you can improve as well.

8. With a grin

A smile says it all much like eye contact. There's no point on grimacing or frowning in a meeting or a gathering, unless it's a wake. You can better express what you're saying when you smile.

9. An Exemplar

You should have listened to at least one or two people in your life when they're at a civic gathering or maybe at house of worship. In no doubt they read their lines, but taking a mental note of how they highlight what they say can aid you once you take center stage.

10. Homework

Some people like to note things down on index cards, whereas other resort to being a little more silly as they look at their notes written on the palm of their hand (not for sticky hands, right?). Just be at ease with what you know given that you enjoy your work. Make the best out of preparation rather than just scribbling notes and often in a hasty fright.

And that about wraps it up. These suggestions are rather amateurish in edgewise, but I've learned to empower myself when it comes to public or private speaking and it never hurts to be with people to listen how they make conversations and meetings far more enjoyable as well as educational.
