Teaching requires public speaking and persuasion skills on a daily basis – both “inwardly” – a teacher in front of the pupils, a lecturer in front of students, a principal in front of teachers – and “outwardly” – principals and teachers in front of parents, supervisors and senior officials in the education system and local government.
Anyone whose occupation is in education has public speaking, rhetoric and leadership skills. The unique workshops for teachers and lecturers developed by “Dr. Persuasion” are aimed at exposing the participants to methods and rules that will refine and improve these qualities, with an emphasis on elements that are unique to the teaching profession, such as improving the ability to deal with disturbances.
The ability to speak to an audience and control the listeners is not a trait we’re born with. Anyone can learn basic tools and use them. Rhetorical skills, at any level and regardless of the number of years of teaching experience, can be significantly improved.
