As a speech coach and public speaking trainer, I often get questions from skeptical new speakers about the benefits public speaking has to offer. They wonder why they should bother with challenging themselves to master it. When these misconceptions come forward I always detail the many powerful and wide-spanning reasons one should always invest in improving communication skills. Public speaking is a fundamental life and career skill, no one can be without.
Communication Skills Are Vital
In nearly all aspects of life communication is vital to our success. From the interpersonal to the professional we need it every day to survive and thrive. Public speaking is at the most fundamental level – all about communication. Mastering it is a key pillar in our personal & professional success.
Personal Benefits of Public Speaking
In our relationships, just as in professional world – public speaking/communication skills reign supreme. We use them every day to convey a message, attempt to persuade, or even effectively listen. Without effective speaking skills our interpersonal relationships face unnecessary challenges. You will find that all of the skills we learn yield benefits far beyond the places you ever imagined. Most importantly, you will find them of tremendous value your interpersonal relationships. You’ll have a deeper sense of how to effectively convey a message to friend, family or loved one. A skill more than worth its weight in gold.
Professional Benefits of Public Speaking
For a moment, think of any professional setting where you might have to lead or persuade. Would effective communication skills help? Public speaking gives you these fundamental communication skills for delivering as a speaker but it goes well beyond those powerful benefits. Whether before a small group of board-members or a group of 1000’s mastering these skills will outfit you for communication success. Examples of individuals that succeed in speaking, communication and leadership abound. The one commonality of them all is they are effective communicators and excellent public speakers.
