Lecture description 2 the making of your fear in public speaking

Lots of people experience fear when public speaking.

The symptoms of fright are quite well known: our hands are shivering, we are sweating, we have a lead ball inside our stomach, etc.

And fear can appear in various circumstances and present itself under various forms.

Circumstances such as delivering a speech to an audience, large or small; speaking to shareholders; negotiating with potential customers; at the moment of a job interview or the final oral exam in an academic competition; etc

Various forms such as: fright; stage fright; anguish; tension; nervousness; apprehension and even dread.

But how does fear work? : It works in 3 steps and 3 elements.

These 3 elements have a great importance for fear in public speaking. Every method to reduce your fright must take these 3 elements into account, either separately or as a whole. You will discover that during this course.

Lecture description 3 : Abdominal breathing

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Coming from the techniques of yoga and zen , this method is very simple.

We must acknowledge this fact: in public speaking, we don’t know how to breathe!

Lecture description 4 SARAH BERNHARDT’s ANTIFEAR METHOD

You may ask yourself: Who on earth is Sarah Bernhardt?

Don’t worry. Here in France, many people don’t even know who she was !

She was a French theatre actress.

She had what theatre critics called a golden voice. The best golden voice of the whole French theatre. Ever.

But she had something very surprising for such a talented, such a gifted person.

She was scared to death, scared stiff when coming on stage. She had a blue funk on entering the stage. Surprising, isn’t it?

But she had a trick, something smart that theatre critics have noticed and brought to posterity...

So how can we take inspiration from Sarah Bernhardt‘s method?


I invite you to discover 2 exercises in the vocal recording of this lecture

Lecture description 5 small training or small learning by small doing

This method is the one I like best and that I have fine-tuned for my trainees and using it for me too.

It’s a very easy and powerful method I want to share with you.

It puts emphasis on the concept of “small-learning by small-doing”.

What is it about?

Section 3: 3 MORE SOPHISTICATED METHODS FOR A LONGER TERM RESULT

Lecture description6 positive mental programming detailed

Before speaking in public, you may have negative images in your spirit. More negative images than positive images.

Here is really the root of your fear.

We must recognize that the origin of our fear of public speaking comes mostly from negative thoughts and negative experiences we made in our past.

These images are stored in our unconscious and influence our life.

And here is the good news: Even if you’ve accumulated complexes of all kinds to speak in public, you can deactivate most of those negative hindrances, all those crippling impediments.


So how can you deactivate all those hindrances?

Lecture description 7 practice inner smile

The idea of smiling goes counter to what makes our everyday life.

Everyday we have continuous reasons for sulking.

Some of these reasons are justified, others are not. But the problem isn’t there.

To get out of this bad mood, we can always make a beautiful smile when passing a mirror.

And some of us can even give a funny face. A funny face which will look more like a grimace than a real smile.

Inner smile is something completely different.

This technique comes from the wisdom of Asia. Especially TAO. This part of the world, including China, has known it for decades.

What is it about?

Gain more self confidence: some helpful tips

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Self confidence is your best tool for your successful public speaking.

If you lack self confidence, it shows that, from the start, you’re afraid of yourself and afraid of others.

A study conducted by the Purdue University, Indiana, in 2007, concerning fear in public speaking and its problem solving techniques, has come to the following result:

A proper preparation and a correct rehearsal can help you to reduce your fear by 75%.

A proper breathing technique can further reduce this fear by 15%.

Your mental state accounts for the remaining 10%.

Of course, we can discuss these percentages but this study puts the emphasis on the real main topics to reduce fear of public speaking.

In the light of this study, I’d like to share with you 3 leading rules and commentaries.

Instructor Biography

Pierre Barbier, Public Speaking Trainer For Shy People

<?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />

As a French speaking English professional, I am a pure product of France's upward social mobility.

Starting from a mediocre and a rather poor general academic level and mostly thanks to scholarships, I have gained an education in 3 high level and prestigious French schools.

These prestige university-level (post)graduate colleges, we call “grandes écoles" (great schools) here in France. For instance: HEC Paris Business School (second best Master in Management in the world according to The Financial Times) and ENA French School of Government.

Since the start of my career, I had to speak in public quite often.

And nevertheless, I was a mediocre, a below-average, a shy public speaker !!

So I trained myself intensely, attending various public speaking courses. And coined my own method. Then I started in my turn training many French professionals for a better communication.

Today, I'm willing to share with you my professional experience and help you to improve your communication skills.
