FIND MY OWN VOICE – voice has to do with character and personality and highly affects other people’s perception of us. How do you find your own, true voice – both physically and in terms of speaking?
TO STAND BEFORE AN AUDIENCE (big or small) – growing up, were you one of the people who cringed every time it was your turn to speak in front of the class? Maybe you still shudder at the mere thought to speak in public today? Speaking at a wedding makes you sweat? Learn to understand the mechanisms that make you uncomfortable and pick up some tricks and tips as to how you can practice to make it fun (or at least that it doesn’t make you panic every time).
TO GRAB AN AUDIENCE – can you notice how your listeners are slowly fading out and maybe slouching in their seats? Do you feel stressed over that fact that you ”go on and on” and feel like you’re not connecting or getting through? No worries, you are far from alone – it can be fixed and you can master this too.
NETWORKING – networking is essential, no matter what line of work you are in – it is increasingly becoming a more vital part of both our professional and personal lives. Do you cheer at the thought of going to (another) ”professional networking event” or ”business drinks and mingle”? Learn the ropes to make it fun, exciting and rewarding (again)!
(SELF) CONFIDENCE – the big one, mythical and misunderstood. To build confidence takes bit of work and practice, but it’s something everyone can get a lot better at – if you know how – and is not to be confused with arrogance or self-esteem. HollywoodCoachen has your back and gives you practical advice and exercises.
