TM Manish uses great logic in his script for the role of Ah Counter to inspire people. He makes a valid point as to why we should focus on our usage of filler words. Read his submission below.
RELATED: How to do the role of Ah Counter?
We have all signed up for some path in Pathways. I am in engaging humor, trying to perfect the inner stand up comedian in me. Someone might be in Effective Coaching; others may have signed up for Visionary communication or persuasive influence.
Can you imagine anyone excelling in these roles with too many crutch words in their performances? A stand up comedian who mutters “umm”, or a persuasive speaker who uses “but” in loop or worse a visionary communication who keeps repeating “you know.”
That is why in Toastmasters, we have an Ah Counter whose role is to keep a track of these crutch words used by the speakers in the meeting. I will make a note of your crutch word usage today and present my reports towards the end of the meeting so that we may all begin excelling in our chosen paths.
Thank you so much TM Manish for this submission.
