In the last six weeks, i believe that if my communications skills were better they would've benefited me a lot while doing presentations at church. Because I am always nervous when speaking in front of crowds and i tend to stumble over my word, and beneficial to the audience who may have ad trouble hearing or understanding my words.
I feel like church is a hard place to communicate. But once one is able to over come speaking in big crowds it will be simple as talking to one person.
J'Taija, it is always hard to speak in front of people, especially at church. But it is good to hear you are more confident!
I had to do that as well it was hard for me at that time but now you can improve.
I too found myself in a similar experience like you in the past six weeks. It could have been beneficial to the person I was speaking to because they wouldn't have had to guess what I was saying or have trouble hearing what I said.
I always get very nervous when speaking infront of a crowd also.
I can totally relate to this because that's exactly how I feel when speaking in front of my church members or at events that they have.
It can be really hard to speak in front of large groups of people, so it's perfectly normal to be nervous about it. With things like speeches, practice is key. The more speeches you give, the more likely you are to be confident.
Speaking in front of a huge group of people is nerve racking but the more you do it the easier it will get.
Maybe telling a bit about yourself can make a sense of trust to others. I like to usually talk about business and usually make friends with the person I am doing business. I was at a store once (Subway) after work and I was hungry. The person taking my other was named Shelby and I told her it reminded me of the car brand Shelby. we talked a bit more and went on to tell her about my interest in cars (not as big). I told her a few stories and she as well. after a few minutes it was time for me to head out. When I was about to pay she said, "Don't worry about it! It's on me!"
Marcos, that's cool to hear that you sparked a conversation that quickly, and most importantly got free food out of it.
Its great to know that have good communications skills can be vey useful.
You had great communication and since you got to know each other better you get free food.
That's good to be able to talk like that. And you got free food out of it.
A time in which the communication skills I have learned have been beneficial was, when I was talking to my college professor about a writing assignment that was due. I effectively talked to her and asked if I could have the due date extended because I had submitted a piece to the writing center and I had not heard back, in which I needed to in order to edit my final draft. When I had sent her the message she changed the due date for everyone in the class, which made me feel better.
Good communication was a key role for that situation. Since it wasn't just for you maybe you did help others who wanted an extension on the due date.
This exact situation happened to me in my English class as well. The communication I portrayed could have been a bit more formal in my email, however it did work out in the end.
Communication was very important factor in this situation. I'm glad you were able to get your point across and not only help yourself but the entire class as well.
When you asked for an extension date for the assignment, you probably helped out a lot of other people that needed more time to complete it. It can really pay off to communicate with your teachers and professors, because more likely than not, they will be understanding.
I really could have needed a lot of improvement with my commutation skills last week because not to long ago I started my new job as a cashier. That means I meet and talk to new people everyday and I'm not a big talker so I often have trouble with speaking up when I'm reading there orders to them or telling them how much something cost.

That means I meet and talk to new people everyday and I'm not a big talker so I often have trouble with speaking up when I'm reading there orders to them or telling them how much something cost. If I could speak up people would know what they are paying for , which is good because I don't like angry customers.
I know how you feel. I recently started working as cashier at work too. Trust me, it gets better.
I was the same way when I worked at food lion back in Virginia as a cashier I use to be so shy before I had that job , but I'm glad I had the chance to experience that environment because it improved my communication skills a lot.
I remember when I had to speak to people at church when I was like a person that opens the door greeting people welcome them. Though the door and I was so nervous I was that type of person that did not like to speak that much. I had talk at one point it was a long conversation with lots of people but I guess I pull through.
I time in the past six weeks that I could have improved my communication was yesterday morning. I went to Crazy Burrito to pick up some burritos and I was stuttering very badly and I had no idea why. I don't have a speech impediment at all but it seemed like when I noticed that I was stuttering I stuttered even more. Improved communication could have been beneficial to all persons ivolved because it would have benefitted the burrito stand employee as they wouldn't have to guess what I was saying and the transaction wouldn't have taken as long as it did.
It may have tooken a while, but at least you got your burritos. Next time hopefully you improve your communication skills and get them faster.
In the past 6 weeks a time were my communication skills could've been better was today. I have early release so I leave school at 2:17. However, today I needed to get back to school at 3:15. My mother picked me up and I told her about it but she explained that my brother needed a ride at 3:15 too. I tried to tell her my plan so that both me and my brother would get to where we needed to be on time. It didnt work. Everything that came out of my mouth sounded like jibberish. If I would've just relaxed I could've talked to my mother more clearly and we could've figured something out.
I can defiantly relate to this! It happens to me very frequently and you're right we should relax so we can process our information better. By doing so we will be able to communicate our points across a lot better.
In the past 6 weeks one instance would be at my job. making sure that the referee crew fully understood the new build out line on the field for the U9 and U10 aged soccer teams. If I had effectively explained to both my crew members what needed to be felt with the whole experience would have been better for us all.
Making sure everyone understands is a good idea. You wouldn't want anything wrong to happen.
In the past 6 weeks there have been instances where I would've wished my communication skills were superior. One example of this is when I went to speak to my counselor. I went into her office to talk about college applications and I didn't communicate the way I wanted. Due to that she didn't quite understand what I was trying to ask and I wasn't fully able to have my questions answered.
In the past 6 weeks communication skills would have been beneficial when I was in church giving the welcome speech to the visitors who had came to church service that day. I was so nervous talking in front of all those people there, I was even afraid that I may fumble across words because that's how nervous I was. I didn't fumble over my words but I had paused between some words that shouldn't have , I made eye contact with some people which shouldn't have done because it made me even more nervous. If I would have just relaxed the speech would have went smoothly.
In the last six weeks, a time where my communication skills could have been better was when I asked my mom to give me a ride to spend time with my friends. I wasn't sure exactly where they were because they were about to leave, so I didn't know where to tell my mom to drop me off. If I had communicated better with my friends, there wouldn't have been a problem.
I've had that problem sometimes in the past. Better communication with the people you want to spend time with is essential before actuallt going out.
I had this problem a lot when I didn't drive. It really helps figuring things out before hand.
When I was at a friends one time and it was getting pretty late. Usually my mom calls and asks when am i coming home and from there I would say if she could pick me up. But she didn't that night. So i had to call her at about 9p.m. to come pick me up.
In the past six or more weeks I've been working with improving my communication with leadership with the color guard. It can be hard speaking in front of a big group of people but, with practice it can become really simple.
