This article makes several points that are very counter productive to good speaking. For example, to tell people that the more they plan, the worse they will do is blatantly wrong. Careful planning and thoughrough rehearsal are by far the best ways to overcome communications anxiety. Furthermore, telling emerging speakers to be humble tends to give them the wrong impression. A sense of confidence in their abilities is essential, and even if you don't feel that sense of confidence, a speaker should try to project that aura. Surely it would be possible to find an article on this subject that doesn't not have this level of false or misleading information.
