Communication Apprehension

-          The number one fear among people is public speaking, so know you’re not alone.

-          Apprehension leads to bodily experiences such as “butterflies”, cold or sweaty palms, dry mouth, and racing heart rate.

-          These body responses are caused by stress. Which can lead to certain behaviors such as,

-          Withdrawal, you may clam up and refuse to speak.

-          Disruption, inability to make fluent oral presentations.

-          Overcommunication, dominating social situations by over-talking.

-          The only way to promote effective group speaking or for some “one-on-one” speaking is to work to overcome the stressful event.
