Public Speaking Training Programs that Actually Work for You

public speaking fear

Finding a public speaking training company that will satisfy your needs can be a chore.How many times have you been through a company training session provided by an outside source only to find that a after a few days you find yourself forgetting what you have learned? There are a lot of training companies that boast that their programs whether it be sales training, public speaking training, or any other general business training that promises to produce more revenue for your business. I myself have experienced and endured many training programs through my years in the corporate world that promised that once we completed these magical courses that company revenue would increase at a healthy click. Very soon after our minds were armed with new approaches and solutions to outsmart  the competitors and the very people (customers) that we were to obtain new business.

Most companies or individuals are desperate for a quick fix to make themselves more potent producers not really paying attention to how the mechanics of the training course. I have only received and retained very few techniques from most of the training companies that have impacted my business skills, why? Because most training companies tout programs that they have developed with mediocre tools for success or dispense what I call “rote” information which translates into basically training material that has been rehashed and rehashed from other training courses that you may have received  in your early years in sales or management. You may also experience a training that offers a “cute” tie in with some kind recreational theme or so. I’m sorry but this type of training lasts a few days and you will feel yourself forgetting what you have experienced shortly thereafter. This s due to the fact that your training experience was one sided meaning that you probably did not participate in the training to validate what you have learned. Eighty percent of public speaking training companies do not offer the opportunity to learn a section then practice and then perform while in the training class. This is the only way to “reinforce” the training so that it sticks. Most training companies will send in a trainer as a “talking head” to ‘preach” training program and with the exception of fielding a few questions from the participants instead of taking the time to validate what participants truly learned.  So what should you look for in a successful training workshop? An example of a Public Training workshop that I have experienced is actually having the presenter or trainer deliver many sections during the day of training and after each section the participants will break out and then practice with a partner from the class to reinforce what they have learned and then do a solo in front of the room as to simulate a live presentation in front of an audience. They also showed you how to design and write, while in class, a well crafted and effective speech. When this method is employed about 8 or 9 times in the workshop the participants will actually come out with something that is truly learned and absorbed. Most training companies will specify how they institute their training on their web site or most people should inquire as to what a proposed itinerary will include. It’s  important to find a public speaking training company that will actually leave you with a noticeable change in your confidence and skills.
