10 Ways to Empower Your Communication


The Blarney Stone is an ancient stone, or part of the Blarney Castle in Ireland, where it was formerly thought that kissing the stone would grant you the gift of gab. Yes, it seems unusual in this day and age, but who are we to call tradition into question? It’s not like I’m denying the existence of Santa Claus (OOPS!).

There is far more to dialogue than anyone, including me, could ever comprehend. You can go through talk shows, radio programs, public speaking groups, and regular chats; certain laws still apply when it comes to contact through words. I know it sounds tedious, but even though your mouth is performing the job, your brain works twice as hard to produce results.

There is far more to discussion than anyone, even me could possibly comprehend. You can progress by watching talk shows, radio programs, groups dedicated to public speaking, and regular discussions; certain rules still apply when it comes to contact through words. I know it sounds tedious, but even if your mouth is doing the job, your brain works twice as hard to produce as many things as you know. So what better approach to begin learning to communicate effectively than to get to know the person closest to you: yourself?

  1. What you are aware of
    Education is all about mastering the fundamentals, but becoming a good speaker requires putting what you’ve learned into practice. My experience as a guest at every Toastmasters meeting I attend has taught me that while we all have limitations, we can learn to keep up and share what we know.

  2. Paying attention
    It is equally vital as asking questions. Listening to the sound of our own voice can sometimes teach us to be a little more confident in ourselves and to say what we believe in with conviction.

  3. Sincerity
    We all make mistakes, and occasionally we slur our words, stutter, and most likely mispronounce some phrases even if we know what they mean, but we rarely utilize them to impress listeners. So, if you’re in a group, don’t be afraid to question if you’re saying the right word correctly, and if they’re hesitant, make a joke about it. I guarantee that will make everyone laugh, and you will be able to get away with it as well.

  4. Make Eye Contact
    When it comes to directing your attention to your audience with an arresting stare, there’s a lot to say. Even if he or she is stunning, it is critical that you maintain your concentration when speaking to a large group in a meeting or gathering.

  5. Joking around
    When giving a speech, a small touch of comedy might help to relieve tension or, worse, boredom. That way, you’ll catch the bulk of the audience’s attention and make them feel that you’re equally as personable and human to those who listen.

  6. Be like the others
    Interaction is all about interacting with others. You’ll gain a lot of ideas and learn why things are the way they are.

  7. Me, Myself, and I
    Admit it, you occasionally sing to yourself in the shower. I’m sure I do! Listening to the sound of your own voice while practicing your speech in front of a mirror might help you adjust your pitch’s stress spots. You can even spruce up while you’re at it.

  8. With a smile
    A smile, like an eye contact, says it all. It’s pointless to scowl or grimace in a meeting or gathering unless it’s a wake. When you grin, you can better explain what you’re saying.

  9. An Example
    You must have listened to at least one or two persons in your life when they were speaking in public or at church. They read their lines, but paying attention to how they accentuate what they say can help you once you hit the stage.

  10. Preparation
    Make the most of your preparation rather than just scribbling notes in a hurry. Some people prefer to write things down on index cards, while others are more amusing when they look at their notes scrawled on the palm of their hand (not for clammy hands, please). Simply be at ease with what you know because you appreciate your professionalism.

That basically sums it up. These tips are a little amateurish on the surface, but I’ve learned to empower myself when it comes to public or private speaking, and it never hurts to be around people and listen to how they make talks and meetings a lot more entertaining and enlightening.
