Why do good speakers project such strong leadership?

When speaking it’s important to realize that being comfortable is not an end in itself. Ease obviously provides more comfort but it is by no means a guarantee of performance. In terms of personal and professional development, the goal is to be identified as a speaker who is capable of creating adhesion among the audience…

Stress: the longer it lasts the worse it is!

Since work stress is increasingly singled out for the physical illnesses it provokes, it appears essential to develop strategies to protect us. Public speaking is part of these well-known “stressors.” This type of stress however has one advantage: it stops once the presentation is finished. The exercise of public speaking thus provides excellent opportunities to…

Build a reassuring image of yourself

We have often written about public speaking being a source of stress for the majority of us, and how this stress is expressed differently according to each person, and influences our thought process. We suddenly have the feeling of not being up to the task though we know perfectly well that we are properly prepared.…

It is indeed a widespread taboo that one should not boast about oneself, to avoid being considered pretentious. And yet, there are many who simply…

Don’t let yourself be dominated anymore

There’s an obvious parallel between “words” and “power.”  Naturally, the person speaking acts as a guide. We most often summarize it in one sentence: “Any public speaking is the expression of leadership.” This explains why it is so difficult to speak in front of an audience that is in a hierarchy above you, or to…

How to control your emotions?

Public speaking terrifies many of us. Yet in fact, the act of speaking is rarely the real problem.

3 exercises to escape from stress
