Public speaking training
Apprehension to speak in public
Why does the simple idea of speaking in public give me an accelerated heart rate, when I haven’t started to express myself? Sweating, loss of concentration and your means? Why is public speaking a bad time that we want to see ended as quickly as possible? Why do I have a real phobia to speak in public? Can public speaking training make a difference?
These questions must undoubtedly be seen in Pavlovian conditioning. Indeed, the person with one of the above characteristics will no doubt be expressed as a child in front of his comrades without asking questions or feeling a particular apprehension during his life. What events could have triggered a conditioning of fear, stress and anxiety to speak in public?
The answers are as manifold as there are people and experiences of their own. Thus, we often find a presentation at school that will have gone wrong and the child who begins to be stigmatized as being “bad or null” by his teacher and his classmates. Unconsciously the person will have been judged “to speak in public”. This event is written in the person’s deep memory.
Public speaking training: vicious and virtuous circles
Public speaking becomes more and more difficult and a vicious circle is set up. Therefore, at the simple idea of speaking in public, the person puts himself in a situation of stress. She is the speaker’s worst enemy because he inhibits the speaker from gaining access to all of the speaker qualities and skills that we all possess. These become few if not nonexistent during his public speaking. The person is thus comforted in the idea that he is bad at speaking in public and this state of affairs is established.
The events that can lead us to cultivate this anxiety before speaking in public are thus often linked to the fear of judgment of others. But it is above all conditioned by the image we have of ourselves. In other words, the eyes of others are often much less severe than we think. Still you have to be convinced!
Public speaking training: positive conditioning
So how do we change this vicious circle of public speaking? Train yourself to speak in public so that this exercise becomes a pleasure. Make sure that appearing before an audience is associated with positive events and that these are anchored in the speaker’s memory and experience.
How do you make public speaking fun? Training in theatrical improvisation is a very concrete solution. Participants learn to trust each other, to trust the group, to let go, to speak clearly, to listen to other players and topublic. So all the ingredients and soft skillsto speak in public are developed.
