Challenge Myself: Day #100 Effective Communication

Today is Day #100 of the Nar Anon Group Just For Today Challenge. I am also integrating the Live Happy into my Challenge. The Live Happy Challenge for today says to improve your oral communication skills by joining a group such as, Toastmasters International.

The book says,

You think you've got public speaking at your workplace nailed, but if you have any doubt or believe that there's always room for improvement, seek help from organizations like, Toastmasters.

Toastmasters International, in particular, has clubs and groups worldwide. You are bound to find one in your area. At meetings you can meet other people like yourself who are interested in being comfortable and capable of speaking spontaneously or doing more formal presentations, but you canalso work on other leadership skills such as thinking and listening.

Serving on a volunteer basis in a group like Toastmasters can help you learn more about public relations, organizing meetins, running contests, and conducting membership campaigns.

Additionally, you'll be meeting people just like yourself who are motivated to succeed in their lives. You might even talk a coworker or two into attending with you.

Those who know me know that I am not a public speaker. It has been hard standing up in front of people advocating against this heroin epidemic here but I haven't let that stop me from speaking about it. Each time has gotten a little better so that I am a little more comfortable standing up in front of others.

Just For Today: I will work on my communication skills and be an interested listener at all times.
