Coaching sessions (in person or Skype) begin with identifying the speaking challenges you face. Next, we explore possible causes that have stood in the way of you freely expressing yourself. By uncovering what contributes to your anxiety, you will arrive at a new clarity about how to change.
Using my 7-Step Guide to Fearless Speaking, together we design a personal, successful plan that dissolves fear and builds deep self-confidence. These 7 Steps to Fearless Speaking are based on presence, connection, and authenticity.
• Presence keeps you calm, centered, and clear.
• Connection brings you closer to your listeners.
• Authenticity leads you to your inner strength.
I believe that gaining confidence to speak is not about crafting a better speech or learning performance techniques. It is about being comfortable with who you are.
