Don’t Let Stuttering Stop You From Landing Your Dream Job!
A lot of business leaders, entrepreneurs, entertainers, politicians, and otherwise brilliant minds are stutterers, including the former CEO and chairman of General Electric (GE), Jack Welch. His mother gave him the confidence to believe in himself and to ignore those who bullied and teased him because of his stutter. Armed with that confidence, he went on to get his Masters and PhD from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1960. In 1999, Fortune Magazine named Welch “Manager of the Century.” And by the time he retired in 2001, Welch had turned GE into a multi-billion dollar company.
Stuttering is a fluency disorder characterized by breaks in the flow of speech by repetitions, prolongations, or abnormal stoppages of sounds and syllables. For over 3 million Americans nationwide, or approximately 1% of the population, stuttering is an everyday hurdle to overcome, especially in the workplace. In times of stress or nervousness, like during a job interview, the symptoms tend to increase and become harder to control.
