“Communication is a skill that you can learn. It’s like riding a bicycle or typing. If you’re willing to work at it, you can rapidly improve the quality of every part of your life.”
If you get nervous or feel intimidated when you have to speak at a meeting or in front of more than just one other person, try Toastmasters. It’s an inexpensive way to get better at speaking – both in and out of the workplace. Toastmasters starts you with a basic manual and you grow from there. It’s a great way to take control of the greatest fear most people have (yes, they would rather die than speak in public).
