Communication is a crucial skill in business today. Whether you’re talking to your client, your peer or your boss, you must be able to formulate your thoughts in a clear and concise manner, and then deliver those thoughts in an engaging way. This is a foundational skill of all successful leaders: even those who don’t have polished ‘platform skills.’ The good news is that you don’t need to be born with this skill: it’s learned!

Let’s take care of one myth right off the bat. Everyone does public speaking. Any time you are talking to anyone, other than yourself, you are ‘speaking in public.’   Unfortunately we tend to believe that public speaking is either done on top of a soapbox on the street corner, or behind a lectern to the masses. Both, and neither, are true. Public speaking comes in all shapes and sizes. Presentations can be formal, like presentations in front of your entire department in an auditorium, or informal like when you present your idea to your boss. In order for you to be effective and get the result you want, you must convey your message clearly, succinctly and in a way that engages the hearts and minds of your audience.

Companies often times don’t see the need for people to take public speaking training if they do not give stand up, formal speeches as part of their job requirements. And even for those who do a lot of presentations, a confident speaker does not automatically mean a competent speaker! So, for the group of people who don’t have the time, want some specific or advanced advice, or who don’t want to admit to anyone they need help, this Self-Study Guide is for you.
