I believe that, as individuals, we all want to be considered “a confident person”. We recognise the benefit of coming across to others as being fearless and self-assured. It is always interesting to clarify the exact meaning of words that we use so regularly …
‘confident’ –marked by assurance, as of success
having strong belief or full assurance
trust or faith in a person or thing
the state or quality of being certain.
Trust, assurance, aplomb, self–confidence … these nouns all denote a feeling of emotional security resulting from faith in one’s ability to achieve a certain goal.
So if we desire to be confident in the area of verbal communication we remember that a ‘communicator’ is someone who is skilled at conveying information or ideas to others. ‘Communication’ is the art and technique of using words effectively to exchange thoughts and to express oneself in such a way as to be readily and clearly understood.
Let’s put time, focus and intentionality behind achieving the above and we will be able to confidently say “I am a Confident Communicator!”
