There may come a time when you have to speak on a topic that your audience does not want to hear, but must. In today’s episode, Marilyn Wolf shares her tips on how to develop the skill of presenting undesired information to what amounts to a hostile audience.
Marilyn Wolf’s Big Tip: “Small increments and small successes create an environment where confidence can be learned at a rate that’s comfortable for the learner,” said Marilyn. “That confidence allows and encourages the learner to try a little more next time.” She believes that this method can be applied to learning speaking skills.
