In this day and age where we seem to be hustling for our worth and our value, the ability to speak confidently is of utmost importance. It seems like sound bites are all people have time for; therefore, those few seconds carry tremendous weight. My heart hurts for those who are unable to carry off the confidence needed. And that is where I come in.
I began working with children with communication disorders in the early 1990's. (I know! You thought I was born then, but I wasn't. I'm a little older than that.) Through studying communication and working with children, a few things have proven to be true. One of the things I have found to be true is that people can help create confidence in others. My theory in working with people was to create a rapport and trust and find out how they best operate. After those things are established, then start to work on their weaknesses. I never wanted someone to feel anxious or insecure about what we working on. It always seemed that insecurity fed on itself and created a cycle of its own. For example, if a child began to stutter and then became fearful of stuttering, that would create a cycle of fear and realization of that fear. I believe this is true in so many aspects of communication. i think of the young man who has a crush on a young lady and musters up the nerve to speak to her, only to be shot down. He is not going to be nearly as likely to confidently speak to a young lady again. It is also true of a person going into an interview situation. Once rejection has happened, it is hard to walk into another interview confidently.
The second observation that I have concluded to is that practice can help. Our brains are wired to fire a certain way. When we are able to practice something correctly, over and over, it becomes easier to do over time. This is true in answering interview questions. When we are asked and able to successfully answer the questions, we are more calm and confident. For example, the student who is striving to do well in school and wants to go to college may have never had the opportunity to learn how to interview. This student is probably going to be very nervous going into a situation where they are unsure of what is going to happen not to mention, being judged. When they are able to have a person coach them in a professional situation, they will be more likely to do well.
