Do you suffer from a fear of public speaking?
Don’t worry… you are not alone! Apparently the average person ranks the fear of public speaking higher than the fear of death and it is more common than the fear of heights or the fear of snakes, which rank two and three respectively.
However, public speaking may be a necessary skill that you need to master in your professional life. Public speaking can also be a useful tool to have under your belt in your personal life. How many times have you been to an event, maybe a wedding or a funeral, where you were unable to address a gathering of people, friends or colleagues?
Does the very thought of public speaking give you sweaty palms and shaky hands? Does your stomach tie itself into knots? Do you start speaking very quickly with a quavering voice?
Fear of public speaking is a common form of anxiety that can range from a slight nervousness to a paralysing fear and panic. It even has its own name – glossophobia.
