The Habit You Have to Change

Lisa Braithwaite summarizes just some of the reasons we may want to be better speakers and what we have to do if we want to achieve that

If you want to be a better speaker, today’s post is meant for you.

First of all, here are a few of the reasons I’ve heard for why someone would want to be better at public speaking:

  1. To open up more opportunities at work by taking on greater responsibilities
  2. To build reputation and visibility in their field
  3. To stop dreading requests to speak by dealing with speaking anxiety
  4. To have a unique voice and be heard, both at work and in personal life
  5. To be more effective at expressing themselves
  6. To build confidence, self-esteem and self-respect
  7. To have a marketable skill when changing jobs or starting a business

There are a lot of reasons that a person would want to improve their speaking skills, which mostly tend to boil down to:

Money
Reputation
Confidence

But you’ll never reach these goals or reap the benefits without practice.
