Do you find it distracting when a speaker uses fillers? The use of fillers and stammering is a common occurrence in daily conversation.
First of all, using like, um, you know is what we all do, but it can leave the listener with certain impressions. There are a few things people may take away from that speech pattern.
An ill-prepared speaker
A dishonest speaker
A speaker who doesn't know about their subject matter
When speaking in an interview or to an audience, it is our desire that our clients deliver the right message. The goal is for a client to project the air of a confident, prepared, and honest communicator. A stammer and fillers don't present those qualities.
Next, what is a speaker to do? There is help! A great way to decrease stammers and fillers is for speakers to be prepared. Clients going into an interview must research the job, employer or the scholarship they are interviewing with and for. We cover more of this in our e-couse, Ace Your Interview.
Because, we find it so important, we encourage proper breathing. Speakers can think better and words flow more easily as a result of controlled breathing. Nervousness can increase stammers, but breathing can calm.
When working with clients, we encourage becoming aware of the use of fillers. After the client is aware of how many times a filler or a stammer is used, we work on decreasing them. Increments of 30 seconds to a minute increase to the whole body of speech without the overuse of these speech patterns.
As seen in the video about first impressions, it takes 27 interactions to overcome a bad first impression. Wouldn't you love to nail that? Reach out to us to learn tips and tricks that help create rapport and a great impression.
