The art of speaking clearly about things

There were times when you tried to render a message, but instead of people finding out what you really wanted to say, they understood almost the opposite. Disappointed, you ask yourself why that happened. In order to express a certain thought the way that you really want to, you have to bear in mind a few techniques.
First of all, before saying something important, take the time and meditate on it. Find out, in the first place, if you’re really convinced about it. Don’t rush to any conclusions, because your decision has to be the correct one. Then, think about the perspectives one can have in mind, when reflecting on the issue in question. You wouldn’t want to express something you agree with, in a manner that would make the others believe you’re against it, as well as, you wouldn’t want to look interested in something you’re not.
Once you are convinced what your position is, regarding a certain issue, focus on when and how to present your thoughts to the others. Bear in mind that every single detail is of great importance.
For example, if you have to present something in front of your colleagues at work, remember that including the clothes you’re wearing that day are important. Specialists always recommend that you wear gray or black – the regular business outfit – because this way, people won’t be tempted to analyze your clothes instead of paying attention to your message.
Also, remember that your voice has to be your ally. Since you are convinced of what you want to say, don’t be afraid to show it. Speak loudly, do not rush, take breaks to breath and articulate the words as well as you can. Show no hesitation and, although it’s an oral presentation, don’t forget to use the punctuation marks. Remember that a structured speech is always easier to follow and tips using rhetorical questions, helps involving the audience into your presentation.
Another important technique, when it comes to keeping your audience interested and focused, is establishing eye-contact. Do not stare at only one or two people in the presentation room, only because they are your bosses or the special guests, but try rendering your attention to all the persons in the room, because, since they took the time to come and listen to you, you should consider all of them important. Also, the movement of your eyes and eyebrows can mark a point of extreme importance in you speech. Observe that when you are convinced of something your eyes get larger and your eyebrows rise, but when you’re talking about something you are not convinced of or you don’t know much about, your eyes get smaller and your forehead wrinkles. Therefore, do not forget to use your eyes during your presentation.
Also mind your body position. When you want to convince and attract your audience, slightly bend forward. Also, be careful what you do with your hands – you wouldn’t want to realize your scratching your nose while you’re talking about an important issue.
Keep in mind that the words you are using are the means you’re employing in order for your message to get to your audience. Adapt the vocabulary of your speech to the persons listening to you. Don’t use specialized terms for non-specialists, but try to make your message easy to follow.
Meditating on the tips above mentioned will help you improve the manner in which you make your opinions known to others. So, take a deep breath, keep your head up and give the speech!
