* Allows you to take control of question by rephrasing question to a more positive light if needed. * Enables everyone, if in a public setting, to hear question. 4.Focus on One Main Point and Support It The number one reason why we sometimes freeze up when asked to think on our feet is because we have so many ideas running around in our minds. We don’t know which idea to mention. Here’s solution: Go with first idea that comes to mind and say it. By sticking with that one point you can focus on two or three supporting points. You sound more direct and confident when giving your answer. 5.Summarize and Stop (SAS) End your answer with some SAS (Summarize and Stop). Give your answer, summarize, and stop. Don’t apologize and don’t ramble on beyond finish. Try this trick: repeat essence of question. For example, you may be asked, “Why did you stop project?” In your summary you might say, “And that‘s why we decided to start another project.” Then stop.
Give your answer, let them know end is near by saying:
“In summary…” “In conclusion…”
Then simply stop. Remember SAS.
Apply these techniques so that you can become a master at “thinking on your feet” and give great answers. You can practice these skills by joining Toastmasters. In their meetings they have an exercise called “table topics,” in which you can practice this skill in a supportive environment
