Getting Ahead by Conquering Fear of Public Speaking
Why Is This Important?
Fear of public speaking holds many talented people back. “I was in management for 22 years and saw many people in management who would not seek higher levels because they knew they would have more speaking responsibilities. My experience and education convince me coaching can help instill skills and confidence.”
What Are the Key Lessons Learned Here?
One-on-one support and attention—coaching—can help motivated individuals conquer fears and improve communication skills. “I’ve seen this is true whether they’re at Gillette, Procter and Gamble, Duracell, or at an entrepreneurial start-up or civic group. The people who are succeeding are the ones who have discovered the mentors, teachers and support they need.”
