Video is everywhere, and the cameras used to create it are too, which makes it incredibly easy to practice these techniques. Performance jitters decrease with familiarity. In other words, the more you do it, the easier it’ll become.
So here are a few ways you can flex your on-camera muscles:
Suggest turning your next teleconference meeting into a video conference. Your teammates may not be thrilled at first, but the video collaboration wave will crash over them at some point. And meetings with the webcam on are often more productive and shorter, which is a pretty good incentive.
Do you have a blog? Instead of writing it, record it. People are four times more likely to watch than read. You’ll be able to practice all of the techniques you learned about speaking on video and communicate with them in a way they prefer.
The goal shouldn’t be to do it in one take. The goal should be to do a take that you are proud of, whether it’s take two or 200.
