Communication Skills for Young Adults

Jun 12, 2008
It is quite ironic that some of life's biggest decisions are made in our late teens and early twenties. Decisions about further education, entering the workforce, building a career and getting ahead are very prevalent during this time of life. But unfortunately with very few life skills and experience behind a young person this can make for a very stressful and confusing time.

Not only is the decision making process itself all consuming and an incredible pressure for young adults but the process of discussing their options with parents, teachers and university advisors, then interviews with educational facilities and later on, potential employers, can make them feel completely out of their depth.

While living life might be the only way to gain true experience there is much to be said for a person who is able to enter into these challenging scenarios confidently and with the ability to discuss matters of such importance thoroughly and with a clear understanding. Knowing what one wants to achieve, whether education or career related, and being able to communicate that desire effectively and efficiently can ease the pressure experienced during this time and will also provide an individual with an excellent foundation in good communication skills that will serve them well in the years ahead.

Being able to speak confidently with peers, colleagues and superiors is a very valuable skill and will be called upon time and time again in a person's life. A person who is able to communicate their ideas and thoughts articulately is much more likely to avoid the common stress and challenges of higher education, the interview process, employment reviews and leadership opportunities for example. However, it is important to note that the hallmark of a confident speaker is not one who is overly witty, clever or super polished. The value of a confident speaker is in being someone who is able to easily join a conversation, contributing thoughts and ideas clearly and efficiently and enjoying verbal interaction with people from all walks of life. By mastering a skill such as this an individual would always be a step ahead of the crowd.

So how can a young adult develop these skills without the benefit of life experience and the associated natural learning curve? Many people in similar situations have found great success with a specially designed self hypnosis training program aimed at building confidence when speaking in public. The goal of the program is to help the individual understand where their lack of confidence comes from and to help them break down their old responses to these situations and build up a new set of responses. They will also gain access to new tools and resources that will provide the individual with new found confidence when communicating with others.

Just imagine 30 days from now being able to walk into any situation and instantly feeling poised and confident when contributing your thoughts and ideas, being able to communicate your desires and goals in an inspiring manner without the common feelings of insecurity and intimidation. Someone with this level of confidence would have the edge over their fellow peers without a doubt and would not have to suffer the self conscious awkwardness typical of this period in ones life.

So if you or a young adult you know could benefit from becoming a more confident, self assured communicator, self-hypnosis might be the answer you've been looking for and a valuable skill gained for life.
