The benefits of having a speaking coach

July 4, 2008

Have you ever noticed that professional sports people have coaches to help them improve? 

Everyone seems to have a coach, sports teams have coaches, businesses have coaches so should speakers have a coach?

My answer to this question is a resounding YES!

A coach will take your speaking to the next level. Your speaking coach will have new ideas and suggestions for you and this will foster your own ideas to help you improve. When you find a coach it’s important to listen to what they have to say, some students want validation not education. You may not always agree with your coach, but if you have an open mind and are willing to try something new you will succeed.

Practice what you have learnt and then go back at a later date and have another coaching session: Success breeds success.

Benefits:

  • Assess your current skills and receive suggestions for improvements
  • Learn something new
  • Gain a plan of action
  • A coach can help you to achieve your goals
  • Quicker results in less time
  • Perfect your skills and abilities
  • Avoid common mistakes

A speaking coach can teach you simple techniques to help you reach that next level, for me, this is a great incentive.

Keep speaking – Carrol
