Tips on Public Speaking: Eliminating the Dreaded "Um" - 0 views

  •  
    For me this article is going to be a big resource. I struggle with filler words not only in public speaking but with everyday conversations. For me it's a hard habit to break mainly because I was never allowed a chance to speak and this comment accurately explains why I use them: "Though not an issue when you're giving a speech in front of an audience, when speaking in a group setting (think work meeting) there is often a level of "competition" for the chance to talk. A pause when speaking often gives someone else the opportunity to pounce and take over the role of speaker. A filler word signals others that you're not yet done talking."
