7 Speaking Habits That Will Make You Sound Smarter [Infographic]

7 Speaking Habits That Will Make You Sound Smarter [Infographic] | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

For many people, even the thought of public speaking can lead to panic. The crowd. The lights. The dreaded Q&A session. It's a lot to deal with.


But allowing these apprehensions to silence our voice can be crippling to our careers. If we want to be seen as smart and articulate professionals, we need to walk the walk and talk the talk.


After all, our intelligence is often best conveyed not in what we say but in how we say it, according to a recent study from the University of Chicago.


Rather than keeping quiet to avoid saying something foolish, it's important that we're actively identifying ways to overcome self-doubt. To help get you started, check out this infographic from the folks at WriteMyEssays.


They've compiled some awesome speaking habits designed to make you sound smarter....

4 Little-Known Reasons Martin Luther King Was An Amazing Leader, Human | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Martin Luther King Jr. seems more legend than man.


But if we peer into Dr. King's life, we can see that he was more and less than myth: a person with interior complexity and exterior grace beyond what a textbook can tell you. So let's get to know his intense, hilarious, and prescient sides below.


HE WORKED WITH HIS ANGER

MLK was a person, which means he had a range of emotions, just like the rest of us. But, as we've mentioned before, the highest functioning people exercise what psychologists call emotional agility, where you notice an emotion like anger when it arises and then choose a response—rather than suppressing it or getting overwhelmed....

8 Easy ideas to make your presentation memorable | Mark Schaefer

8 Easy ideas to make your presentation memorable | Mark Schaefer | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Let’s take a step back and consider how people actually learn from a speech. A few years ago, a research team led by Stephen Kosslyn and composed of experts from three universities studied how presenters could improve their public speaking.


They discovered three steps that must occur to make your presentation memorable:

1. Information needs to be Acquired

2. Information needs to be Processed

3. Information needs to be Connected to Knowledge


If there is any disconnect with these steps your presentation will fall flat. Let’s look at each of these steps and come up with some ideas to help you connect with your audience in a lasting and memorable way....
