How to Perform Well in Lecturette

In defence officers are expected to lead a large force and for its success its necessary that individual should have a skill to communicate his or her thoughts properly to men and people around. The same is simulated through the exercise that we are about to discuss now. The important thing here is that it’s a individual assessment round where you need to perform all alone. Candidates should emphasis specially on such rounds where GTO officer has full time to analyse the personality of individual. Other such rounds are psychology, PI, GPE, IO, command task, at such places you should perform with utmost perfection as full views and qualities are observed and confirmed at such places. Unlike to say aspirant’s performance should be flawless in full process, but these rounds need special care as in other rounds group and team performances are judges which can be managed through other qualities.

Speaking is an art which every leader should have and communication skills should be good along with it. Effective communication can spread confidence in team and everyone will have faith over the effectiveness of the leader. Every aspirant would be asked to pick a card which has four topics to select from. Time to think is given for about 2-3 minutes and then the aspirant is given 3 minutes to express his /her views on the same. The following can help:
  • Clarity of thought, knowledge confidence and depth can fetch you extra marks. So prepare accordingly beforehand by making reading your habit.
  • Public speaking needs to be developed and it needs time. Keep reading news dailies and be updated.
  • Introduction, main body and conclusion should be the part of your script in those 3 minutes and it should be beautifully structured.

  • Don’t ever try to look at the assessor, just look in to the participants eyes who are your fellow mates. Eye contact should be proper with full audience sitting in the semi-circle manner.
  • A bell would be ringed when 30 seconds are remaining. Don’t just try to wrap immediately. Don’t ever show sense of urgency to finish, once the bell is wrung. Always maintain the same flow during your lecture.
  • Proper ending and a good show at this stage add a  lot of value to your referral by the officer , so keep self-prepared.
Body language in such an exercise is very important and I would deal it in a separate article. Still If you have any confusion or feel to take individual assessment of personality for olq’s or prepare from your place itself through one to one interaction through my mentoring / counselling program drop me a mail at jayendrapsingh@gmail.com or add me on Fb and drop in a message. It would be a pleasure to help and resolve queries and clear doubts which are more often myths that are present in the mind and that can severely degrade the performance.
