Managing Stress Anxiety • Causes: o Simply feelings of uncertainty, unease, and nervousness; it does NOT indicate that something bad will happen o These feelings develop and our bodies react with physical changes (increased heart rate, sweating, nervous habits) • Ways to Combat it: o Practice! Good delivery develops over time o Remember you are not alone! Not only is everyone else nervous, but we all want you to do well o Imagine it going well o Stay busy before you go up to speak • More Tips: o Reframe public speaking o No matter how bad you feel your speech went, it’s never actually that bad in reality o Even if you’re nervous, chances are most of us don’t tell Speech Delivery • Delivery Type o Extemporaneous Style—Practiced, but not rehearsed. Conversational o Nonverbal Delivery ▯ Personal Appearance (Comfortable) ▯ Body Movement (utilize your space, don’t tense up) ▯ Gestures (conversational) ▯ Facial Expressions (reflect meaning) ▯ Eye Contact (makes connections) o Verbal Delivery ▯ Vocal Inflection ▯ Tone ▯ Speaking Speed ▯ Volume ▯ Avoid vocal fillers (ahms, umms, you knows…) ▯ Use concrete language ▯ Incorporate metaphors ▯ Include meaningful quotes ▯ Use ‘you’ language and be inclusive ▯ Repetition (Phrases and Themes) ▯ Provide Defenitions Communication 101 • It’s a cycle • Feedback o Positive—“Yes I understood” ▯ Direct or indirect—i.e. everyone becomes quiet and focused indicator: everyone is listening o Negative—Not listening/understanding ▯ Direct (person walks away) or indirect (person sleeps in class) o Fake—Act like you know what’s going on when you don’t • Interference (also called noise or barriers) o Semantic—When words are a distraction o 2 Types of Barriers ▯ External—Things that you can’t help ▯ Internal—Things inside of us—emotions (i.e. jealousy, anger) • Even a positive emotion is negative—i.e. love • 3 Keys to Communication 1.
