Competent Communication Manual
New members receive a membership kit containing the Competent Communication manual, often called the “Basic Manual”, and four other manuals: Competent Leadership, Your Speaking Voice, Effective Speech Evaluation, and Gestures: Your Body Speaks.
The Competent Communication manual is designed to give new members a strong start in developing a core set of skills for public speaking. Each of the ten projects in this basic manual focuses on a certain aspect of speech making – from orgranization to delivery.
Completion of the Competent Communication manual fulfills the requirement for the Competent Communicator award.
Advanced Communication Manuals
Each of the Advanced Communication manuals challenges members to further improve their skills in a specific area of public speaking. Some manuals focus on “real life” situations such as public relations and technical briefings, while others help develop more widely applicable skills such as humor and storytelling.
