Habits are what we do without thinking. They are so ingrained in us that they are second nature, instinct, action without deep and sometimes no thought. It is best that they are good … especially when you are a cruise ship speaker.
The cruise ship speaker will be delivering his/her topic, engaging the audience, making adjustments on the fly. There is no time nor leeway to be thinking about mannerisms and should haves.
Good solid habits are great confidence builders. They allow the speaker to focus on content knowing that their content is embedded in quality.
Example: It is very hard to say with the necessary confidence, “This style of digital marketing is the absolute best'” if in the back of my mind I am thinking, “Am I gesturing effectively, have I said ‘um’ too many times, have I practiced this phrase for best results …” and so on.
Build solid habits as an effective public speaker so that you can focus on content, delivery, presentation tools and have the wherewithal to adapt to different venues and audiences.
In coming posts I will share some of the habits that I think need to be developed.
I welcome your feedback.
