I work as a dispatcher who sees the chance for movement upwards in the next two to three years. I have been doing a lot of listening to these podcasts as well as others concerning public speaking. A lot of the skills and techniques seem to work for dispatchers. In limited context of course.
My problem is when I talk with people, I find myself talking better and more professionally now and it sounds so foreign to me. I occasionally pause after saying something that I know "is not me" and it makes me wonder how others perceive me.
I really want to make supervisor or even assistant director, so I don't plan on stopping my study and or practicing. I guess my question is; When will the professionalism mesh with who I am?
