The power of applause

| -Uncategorized

Listening to the Entrepreneurship 101, I find myself struck by the
silence of the rooms sometimes. Perhaps it’s Toastmasters training,
but I feel strange when transitions between speakers aren’t
accompanied by applause. I’ve been up there before. The stress of
speaking in public does *not* stop when you step off the stage. No, it
gets worse. You start wondering whether you said the right thing.
You’re sure you rambled on and that no one learned anything useful.
You retreat to your seat and agonize.


I should try applauding every transition, even if that means being the
first to clap…
