In this day and age, speaking is an inevitable part of our daily routine. It’s a key component of our social interaction and is one of the most important parts of our social structure. Speech usually takes place between two individuals or in small groups as well as instances where one person must confront a large group of people to convey a specific or important message to as many people as possible in the quickest and hopefully most easily digestible way possible.
The act of speaking is a challenge that everyone from the neighbor next door to the famous statesmen from history has had to face up to. No matter the size of the crowd – one or a thousand – being able to find the right words to convey your idea to another person or persons while leaving little to ambiguity is a tricky challenge.
The art of the spoken word is a truly complex craft to master, but luckily Paramount Training and Development is here to assist willing and able learners a training session directed at becoming a better Speaker.
Speech is a tool that we’ve all learned to use since our early childhood. Plays a mundane, yet subtly complicated part of our everyday lives. We all utilise it, either in casual conversation with friends and associates, as a minor part in our professional lives when we communicate between coworkers, to being an indispensable tool in our trade as customer support agents. Most aren’t even aware just how much goes on when speaking to one another and how if even one of these factors is inadequate or otherwise incongruent with the others, the entire system can collapse or otherwise fail to fulfill its intended function. Speech is a process that takes a lifetime to learn and master, and every speaking engagement either in close company or in front of hundreds of people it has to be approached and handled differently from another. Paramount Training and Development created the Speaker Training course to help teach potential learners in navigating this tricky part of discourse, and aid them in becoming better, more effective speakers capable of handling any speaking situation they are presented with.
Create confidence in learners
Half the battle in speech is overcoming one’s fear. Fear can silence any potential speaker before even a single word is spoken. It can be generated by anything from the speakers’ lack of confidence in themselves or the merit of their words, to fear the potential speaker may draw from the person or persons they are addressing in that moment. This course is designed to help instill confidence in learners by allowing them to build their own self-esteem by teaching them to handle themselves in front of others by drawing from their own merits and their work, as well as overcome the challenge of facing one or a thousand people using techniques and methods which have proven effective for other speakers in the past.
Help learners create a connection to their audience
It cannot be understated how much a human name and face can help a speaker convey their message more clearly to others, as well as how creating rapport between audience and speaker can make them more receptive to one’s speech. This therefore make one’s words more effective and the intended impact of the activity clearer and more resonant. This course aims to aid learners in personalizing their speech using personal attributes of themselves to create a more personal, humanized way of speaking that will be more effective, means of communicating their thoughts and emotions to others.
Make effective use of the learner’s voice
One of the more obvious, albeit overlooked factors in speech is the speaker’s voice. A speaker’s voice can be used to add inflection, energy, color, and otherwise enhance the meaning behind their words during a speaking activity. Correct or incorrect inflection of words can dramatically change the meaning of one’s words; sometimes even changing what the words are for the listeners’ ears altogether. Adding volume and power in one’s voice for certain words in a sentence can add or subtract a significant amount of power behind a statement. Color of one’s speech can elicit emotions from the audience and add potency to a speaker’s words. All these and more make the learner’s voice a significant tool to their arsenal, and one such tool that this course will train learners in proper and effective usage in.
Promote efficiency, retention, and cohesiveness in speech
One of the largest challenges in speech, among many, is the speaker’s ability to stay focused and on a single topic for as long as it takes to convey the point that the speaker intends to make on the subject. When faced with a crowd of one or many, it is easy for one’s mind to drift in and out of conversation, be it from thoughts generated by the presence of an audience, to background events that can distract a speaker while they attempt to perform that activity. This also leads the many stammered “ahs” and “ums” found in regular speech which most people use to fill the dead air with something to maintain the audiences’ attention.
This course will offer techniques and methods to allow speakers to stay on topic, make their points in the most efficient ways possible, allow speakers to maintain their composure and attention in settings or environments that would easily draw attention away from or distract them from their speaking activity, or at the very least allow them to substitute stammering phrases with ones that allow them to return to the topic at hand more efficiently.
