You can practice on family, friends, pets....plenty of time to perfect your technique!Oh, I won't be doing the presentation until August 9.........plenty of time to prepare. But knowing myself, I'll probably wait till August 7th or 8th to write it.
- 1Jan 12, '11 by jahraWhat a great opportunity for you! It is nice to see such a close relationship
between the DNS and executive director.
I fear public speaking as well. Just pick out someone you admire for
public speaking. I watched weeks of Prime Ministers Question Time (British
Parliament) and focused on how they presented their speeches.
It worked for me, got an A in the class assignment and my instructor
thought I had a job which involved public speaking. ()Last edit by jahra on Jan 12, '11

The reality of how many poor nursing managers are out there, wrecking havoc, causing hell for others who are trying to do their jobs and seem to find senior positions, no matter what the sin - is pretty overwhelming in numbers. Regardless of the plethora of management training, skills asessment etc. etc. we witness a never ending repetitiveness of nursing managers who should not be in that role. I was reminded of my own experience where I had a similar director who encouraged all of us, recognised our skills and was always ready to teach and support, most of all, to joke, laugh and support our endeavours. Our unit was also growing rapidly and its success was due to the constant, positive vibes and feedback from managers and patients. Only many years later, do I realise how much missed this, as I have never had a similar experience where I would enjoy working 7 days a week if needed! With such support and mentor, You will do well because you love what you do which injects into whatever type of presentation you choose to make, Congratulations and continue along the path.

However there's another choice, which is going to the nearest Labor Board with the fact that public speaking isn't in your job description (you have looked at that, I hope) and you have been coerced with the threat of "two weeks notice", to sell that facility's services.
Selling health is one thing, but selling your facility to the public is unlikely what you were hired to do, I would think.
