Speaking Effectively

Regardless of how old you, where you come from or what experiences you have had in life communicating effectively is a skill that can very easily be discovered and implemented in one’s life. With a little confidence in yourself as well as some understanding of the basics when it comes to communication, Brad Roemer is convinced that anyone can project their message in a clear and concise manner to be understood and well respected.

 

There Is Always The Right Time For Everything

As the saying goes, there is a time for everything and communication is no exception. Avoid addressing important topics such as finances or weekly planning at the end of the day. Few people will be happy to solve major problems when they are prone to fatigue. Instead, treat these major topics in the morning or afternoon when people are alert, available, and more likely to be able to respond with clarity.

There Is Always The Right Place for Everything

Try at all cost to choose the right place when trying to bring up a conversation that is important to you. In the event that you have to announce bad news (such as a death or breakup), do not make such an announcement in a public area with colleagues or other people around you. Choosing the right place is very crucial as it brings value or diminishes the importance to what you will be saying. Be respectful and attentive to the person that you are announcing and communicating privately to. This will also give you the opportunity to have a dialogue with the person about the communicated factor whiles ensuring that the exchange takes place in a proper manner.
If you are performing in front of a group of people, be sure to check the sound systems in advance and practice speaking clearly and concisely. Use a microphone if necessary to make sure your audience can hear you.

There Is Always The Right Way To Say Everything

The timing is right and the location is right as well. All that is left is for your message to be projected in a clear and concise manner. First, you have to know what it is that you are trying to say; let the message be clearly structured and organized in your mind. This process should be completed before you even attempt to express the idea(s). In the event that the topic is very important to you and brings up a lot of passion and emotion, it would be even more important to structure what you will be saying as the emotions may destabilize you and prevent you from saying everything that you want to actually say.
A good general rule is to choose three main points and keep your communication focused on it. In this way, if the subject deviates, you will be able to return to one or more of these three key points without feeling overwhelmed and sidetracked. Writing down these key points (if appropriate) can also help as some people are more visual and need to reference their speech.

 

These three important steps will get you on your way to speaking effectively when infront of people. Everyone happens to be shy at times but if it was able to work with Brad it can work with anyone as he also had some issues with speach that he quickly got over with these steps.
