Public speaking is said to be the biggest fear for most people. For your employees, however, it doesn’t have to be. There is no debate that communication is essential for successful business. Yet, many struggle to “find their voice.”
In a recent survey by an online presentation platform, 70% of employed people agreed that public speaking skills are critical for their success at work. But, in this same study, 20% of people also stated that they would do anything to avoid presenting. This included pretending to be ill or asking a co-worker to give it instead.
If public speaking is so important in a business setting, why is it such a burden for employees?
