After watching the lectures and completing the Public Speaking Anxiety Questionaire – discuss your own public speaking anxieties. What is your current level of comfort and experience with public speaking? Is it related? – meaning have you become more comfortable and confident with time and practice?
What specific anxieties do you (or did you) suffer from? Has it ever impacted you negatively or prevented you from accomplishing a goal? How do you cope and manage them? What have you found to work well? What techniques from the lecture do you think will benefit you most moving forward?
