“The art of communication is the language of leadership”- James Humes
Communication is an expression in its own form. As it is said, words are the most powerful weapons hence, one should use it wisely as that’s the kind of impact it leaves once said. To be precise, the way one speaks is the way his/her personality is sculpted, the talkative one, the silent one, the spiritual one or the intellectual one. In this manner, there are many more to describe, but the point here occurs is all of these individuals are given these particular titles on the basis of/based on/ because of their communication.
Be it in school, college or universities, the students are encouraged to participate in debates, open discussions, reciting competition and many more such extra-curricular activities. By pushing the students to actively participate in such competitions helps them to speak-up and come face-to-face with an audience and also indulge in one-to-one communication. Coming in contact with such competitions will help boost a student’s confidence and conquer stage-fear, nervousness and anxiety if any. During school, students are in their young and tender age, hence inculcating the habit of narrating stories, speech is very important for them to imbibe these qualities in future.
Growing up, when students are in their early teens they start to feel shy and are constantly under the thought of what others think and react. This in turn is putting a full stop of merely even participating in any competition. Hence, starting at an early age and being consistent builds up a strong personality and character, which does not seems to dissolve anytime soon.
As its said “you are what you speak”, being true to this everyone around you is going to make an opinion in terms of how you frame and portray your words. Todays’ generation will represent upcoming generation, who will turn to be professional in diverse fields and setups.
