What is the difference between speech coaching and learning to speak?
The answer is simple: speech coaching is geared to giving a presentation in front of other people. Learning to speak is something most people do every single day in a multitude of situations some of which are listed above.
Speech coaching may involve: learning to use PowerPoint, flip charts, other visual aids, physically filling a stage with your presence, creating and organizing material…. The end result of speech coaching is usually a presentation. However, even if the material and presentation are perfectly prepared, how well will it come across if you can’t SPEAK well?
Learning to speak is something you will use every day. How You Speak Matters! Therefore, speaking coaching starts with what comes out of your mouth. The fluidity with which you speak, your volume, projection, tone, elimination of “ums’” “ahs”, “sos” and “you knows”. From there, coaching can expand to: eye contact, posture, body language, facial punctuators/expressions and more.
A byproduct of learning to speak in any situation is CONFIDENCE. Building on that speaking confidence I can then coach you to: appear credible in front of any audience, be persuasive, connect emotionally and intellectually, own the room, maintain the interest of and influence your listeners, think on your feet under pressure and present a powerful executive presence.
