Articulate

Have you ever been in a situation where you need to ARTICULATE your thoughts into spoken words? We all have.

I believe that being able to ARTICULATE is a learned skill. Like any skill or habit it is going to require practicing certain fundamentals. When those principles are mastered it becomes a powerful asset to any leader.

Here is a list to consider:

  •  Slow down-when I am struggling with my golf swing which is often I remind myself to slow down. The same is true with ARTICULATING your thoughts. We all are nervous at some point when we are asked to speak or ARTICULATE. Take some deep breaths and speak slow. When you have the chance practice speaking slower.
  • Competent-this goes without saying but you need to know your stuff and do your research. Just winging it will cause anxiety and loss of self-confidence.
  • Posture-If speaking while standing keep your shoulder back and erect. If speaking while seated don’t slouch in the chair.
  • Vocabulary-Can you use different words to state the same thing. For example if you need to offer an opinion on a matter that you have concerns about using words like troubling, pessimistic, alarmed, perturbed, and agonizing will all be far better than repeating “I’m concerned”.
  • Do not scream or shout-talking louder does not make you more ARTICULATE
  • Imitation-who do you admire as an ARTICULATE speaker-spend time looking at their videos
  • Visualization-Picture yourself being ARTICULATE prior to giving your remarks.

If you are a leader you need to realize the success of the team you lead will improve with your ability to ARTICULATE.
