How to Slow Down
Most people think they speak too quickly - especially in front of a group.
So how can you learn to slow down?
The answer? By believing in the importance of your message.
If you truly have something you need to share with your particular audience, you'll naturally do everything you can to make sure each person can understand you.
So often, we speak too quickly because we don't want to waste other people's time. We want to get through the material as fast possible, so that the audience can move on with their day.
From the Green Room: If you prepare a clear, concise, and relevant message for your audience - you will naturally slow down so they can fully receive it.
