AFTER SPEAKING … SELF REFLECT AND EVALUATE

After presenting, take a few minutes to self reflect and evaluate your delivery. Be analytical. ‘Self-praise’ – and also reflect on things you might do differently. Make a few notes on pros and cons.

Keep a notebook or a running file in which you note things being done well and mastered. Also note speech and speaking challenges that continue to confront you during your development.

Appreciate the speech efforts of others and where appropriate commend them on strong points of delivery and impact of message. Have the confidence to offer advice in a non – threatening or ‘put down’ manner. People can only improve if they know where areas of challenge exist.
