Katie Holmes got virtually nothing in Tom Cruise divorce – TALLspeaking – Public Speaking made easy

24 Aug

Yet when you divorce yourself from your ahs, umms, bad eye contact, rambling sentences, no body language, racing heart, you will gain self-confidence, increase in respect, increase in $$$, and the ability to communicate effectively in a fast-paced world.

Here are some Public Speaking Tips on Pauses:

How many seconds should a “short/medium/long pause” be?

There’s no strict rules on precisely how long your pauses should be. Appropriate lengths for pauses (from a fraction of second to several seconds or more) will vary considerably based on your speaking style, the nature of your message, the duration of your talk, your audience, and cultural norms.

Consider the following guidelines:

  • While the duration of your pauses may be different than another speaker, you should vary your pause length consistently. For example, yourcomma pauses (however long they are) should be shorter than yourparagraph pauses. Failure to do so will negate the benefits of using pauses, and will confuse your audience.
  • For long pauses, pause longer than you think is necessary, perhaps longer than is comfortable for you.
  • Seek feedback on your use of pauses. Ask for candid feedback through questions such as: Did my pauses seem natural? Were there any awkward pauses? Was my overall pace too fast, or too slow?
  • Use video recordings to perform a self-assessment of your pause performance.
