The Stuff That Comes Out of Your Mouth

Posted on April 19, 2006 by Sarah Eaton.

I admit it.  I use email more than I should.  I've always thought I'm better at writing than I am at talking, so if I have something to say, I write it out, edit and hit send.  When you're writing, no one waits as you pause to recollect that perfect word.

Lately, though, I've been thinking more about the importance of being able to speak with ease and confidence--for me, that's half the battle: recognizing that I can be confident in my speaking skills.

In pursuit of my improvement program, there are certain things I'm attempting to correct.  I'm trying to eliminate the non-word "um" from my vocabulary, and I've tuned into other words that I use too much (like "essentially").

I found this article (it's a couple of years old, but no less relevant now) about the way women speak--using qualifiers, disclaimers and apologies--and how they're perceived as a result.
