Getting Over Yourself

Improve your speaking by watching the candidates

We’re in that season again to learn the candidates political views as well things in their delivery that work and don’t work

I caught snippets of a few of the possible GOP Presidential candidates speaking at a meeting last week. Two things that didn’t work jumped out at me. Ralph Reed was doing a fine job of making his point until his last words. He lost the extra bump you can get by staying focused on your last words after you’ve delivered them. It’s like not sticking the landing after your gymnastics performance. He stopped focusing as soon as the words were delivered.

Michele Bachmann needs to stop waving her index fingers around. Less wrist movement, all fingers rather than just the one–looking out of control.

These aren’t hard to fix. Be sure you avoid them in your speaking.
