I don’t know about you but when it comes to talking to someone on the phone, I shiver at the thought. In fact, I try to avoid it as much as possible. However, in the Professional Writing world, talking to numerous people on the phone each day is a normal occurrence.
If you are anything like me, this article by Thorin Klosowski called “Overcome Phone Shyness By Creating a Script” could be very helpful. It explains how writing a script of what to say before calling someone could make things so much more comfortable. I can speak to this myself. I was recommended this tip recently and started writing out my introduction or message to leave if they don’t pick up, and I am already feeling more confident and comfortable making phone calls.
For more details on this technique, I recommend checking out Klosowski’s article on Lifehacker.
