Fear of public speaking: work on mistakes

The article of Timur Aslanov, the editor-in-chief of the journal "Press Service"


Public speaking is a terrible dream for many inexperienced speakers. Yes, and experienced, too, sometimes worried about a particularly responsible speech or report. PR specialists often have to speak for themselves, as well as prepare for the speeches of their leaders. What if the boss is shaking his knees and his back is all wet every time he needs to go out in front of journalists or a full hall of the target audience and say the words? To get rid of such fear overnight is unreal. But if a number of measures are systematically applied over a certain period of time, then very good results can be achieved. I want to talk about one of these measures today.


Use it for yourself or for your speaker. It's about working on bugs.

What will it consist of? Let's say that today you performed in front of a certain audience. They made speeches and, as always, displeased with themselves. If you leave everything as it is, then this discontent will be fixed. You will not remember specifically what you were dissatisfied with, but remember in memory that you once again screwed up and did a lot of things wrong. And before the next performance, knees will shake even more.

Immediately after the next speech, find 5 minutes, a piece of paper, sit down and analyze in detail what was done in a wrong way than you are particularly unhappy. Sometimes even the discharge itself will calm you down, and you will realize that not everything is terrible, and there was not much that was wrong. But, if it was bad after all, it is better to write it out, analyze it and fix it, so that you can avoid these errors consciously.

So, we analyze everything. Did you keep eye contact with the audience? Did you remember that you need to look in the eyes of the audience or look at the top, the ceiling, the floor, your shoes, the slides and forget that you are communicating with living people, and forgot to look them in the eyes? Did you remember that the speaker should have a normal, natural gesture, and not nervous shaking of the hands, not messy nervous gestures, rubbing everything in the world? Did you remember this or did you give free rein to your hands and hands separate from your brain and from your body?

Analyze what happened to the words-parasites. The words-parasites very much give out the excitement of the speaker. The more a person worries, the more there are any additional unnecessary, meaningless words, there is ekanie, mechane, boo, etc. Was it much?

It's not easy to remember, but you can ask people who were at the show and are your close friends, acquaintances, support groups, etc. Do not ask other people's people, the audience you were trying to impress. Analyze how much you managed to convey key messages to the audience, how much you managed to convey the meaning of what they wanted to say - this is the main thing in the speech. You crumpled your speech, you failed to make a spectacular ending, you failed to make a spectacular start and put the audience to yourself ... Remember and analyze again, why. Because when we go on stage, we want to be uninhibited, natural, easy to joke, but fear clamps us, we sweat, our hands do not obey, and we forget about this looseness, and, accordingly, the audience too long can not begin to perceive our speech is correct, because it sees excitement or sees our constriction.

Analyze what was in this specifically your speech is not so in this aspect and, of course, - most importantly - whether you had time to tell the essence, whether you brought the right arguments, etc.

Write to yourself all this in the most detail. I do not think that everything was bad. If this is your very first statement, maybe the list of mistakes will be very long. But, if - the second, third, fourth, fifth, then something you probably already learned to do, and this, too, you will be pleased. Of course, the ideal option - to write all of their performances at first on the video - so it is much easier to parse errors. Alas, not always there is such an opportunity. But, if you could not record, try right away, right after the performance, remember everything.

The next step: in order to avoid these errors on the next speech, you need to make a plan of work on them. It is clear that you can not immediately avoid all mistakes. If you are a beginner orator, you will still be worried and still have to step on any rake.

I offer you this technique: you must choose one or two errors that you definitely will not allow at the next performance. And let it be easy mistakes, for example, the same eye contact or gesticulation. Because with the delivery of a key message, it can be much more difficult, it's easier for you to get lost, it's easier for you to get lost. Start with a simple one, when you succeed in a simple, it will be easier to succeed in a difficult one. You will be more confident in yourself. Set yourself the task - in the next three public appearances I will bring to the ideal work with the eyes of the audience. Do this and fix again in the work on the errors after the next speech.

As soon as you master it, proceed to the next error. Do not try to "lick" everything at once. This does not mean that you should not care about the message at all - of course, you should try to avoid all mistakes. But we focus first on the simplest, we achieve that they disappear from us, then we focus on a little more complex and then get to the most difficult.

Do the work on the mistakes for yourself. Make it necessary for your speaker - it will be much easier for you to notice and fix his mistakes from the side. It is important to immediately say these mistakes with him. And together with it, we plan what we are correcting next time. And so step by step you and your speaker will gain confidence and performances will become better, brighter, more interesting.
