However, there are many other times in the course of business and in our everyday lives that we have to speak in public.
I invite you to take the following assessment, so that you can have a better idea of your actual public speaking comfort level.
|ON A SCALE OF 1-10, HOW DO YOU RATE YOUR COMFORT LEVEL IN THE FOLLOWING SITUATIONS?|
|1. Speaking in front of an audience|
|2. Making a business presentation to a prospect or prospects|
|3. Making a business presentation to a current client or clients|
|4. Attending a networking event|
|5. Making a business call to a prospect|
|6. Making a business call to a current client|
|7. Making a presentation at a team or staff meeting|
|8. Making a suggestion at a team or staff meeting|

|10. Being called on at a team or staff meeting|
|11. Making a video|
|12. Recording an audio|

|ADD UP YOUR SCORE TO ASSESS YOUR CONFIDENCE LEVEL|
1-50 Scaredy-Cat – Afraid to open your mouth in most situations
51-75 Rather Shy – Often losing out on a lot of potential business
76-100 Part-Way Out of Your Shell – Starting to attract more clients
101-120 On the Road to Confidence – Seeing even more positive results
121-140 Comfortable Speaking Up – Potential to be a superstar!
TWO FINAL QUESTIONS:
- How much is it costing you in lost business and lost opportunities, not to have the level of speaking confidence and ability necessary to truly succeed in your field?
- Even more importantly: If you are not where you would like to be, are you ready to do something about it?
If the answer to the last question is YES, then this may be the right time to sign up for a complimentary Business Communication Mastery Consultation by clicking here; so that you can finally enjoy reaching those ambitious goals that you have set for yourself.
