As the CEO, she has been asked to make presentations. She’s also joined a women’s club and before long, she found herself president of the group as well.

She knew she could do a great job, but did not have confidence in her vocabulary and her ability to lead public meetings so she hired me to work with her privately.

For the monthly meetings, we worked together to plan what she would say and how she’d say it. She watched videos of herself and was surprised that she didn’t look as nervous as she felt.

For one particularly large meeting, we went to the banquet room at the hotel to do a dress rehearsal in front of the empty room, in order to visualize her success. She was ready for her biggest challenge. Her husband, boss and the other 300 in attendance all praised her performance. Best of all, she beamed with pride during our last session. She now trusted herself as a speaker.

Pharmacist Knows His Purpose

Doug received a request to speak to a large group of women about the topic of natural hormone replacement therapy. He was not experienced in public speaking and this astute businessman admitted he was in a panic mode.

I was curious about his fear and asked, “How many pharmacists are in this city?†He guessed there were about 1200. “So with all those choices, why did the committee ask you to speak?â€

He thought for a moment and then began to itemize the reasons he was selected. It was a long list, including his interest in women’s health issues. He’d even published a pamphlet for women to read on the topic. It was clear that he wanted women to be informed of the available choices so they could make informed decisions about their health.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_column_text]A lightbulb went on in his head as it sunk in why he was the best person to address this topic. Of course, we practiced his presentation, yet the moment he knew his purpose, he transformed from fearful speaker to courageous advocate.

Passion for a group of people or a topic is vital. When we advocate for a cause, our words come from a deeper part of our being, and audiences sense this. My advice: Don’t think of yourself as the speaker, be an advocate.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” css=”.vc_custom_1619329336337{background-color: #f5f5f5 !important;}”][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Spiritual Coach Sees Clearly

Jane is an amazing spiritual coach and the members of her church wanted her be a speaker for one of their monthly meetings. Just the mention of making a presentation upset her stomach, sometimes for days.

As we began to work together, I realized that it wasn’t the fear of getting up in front of a crowd that bothered her the most; it was the fact that she could not visualize how to translate her private coaching methods in front of a group. Once we figured that out, she was more willing to face her feelings.

Needless to say, I was very proud of her when she received a standing ovation after her first presentation. She discovered she really liked the feeling she got when speaking publicly. Did all of her nervousness disappear? No, of course not. But with the taste of one successful event, she wanted to continue to do more. Knowing she had a plan made all the difference.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Insurance Association President Does it His Way

Leo owns an insurance agency. He came from a blue-collar family, but when he saw the career possibilities in the insurance industry, he gave up the tools of his father and grandfather, in order to help people feel safe in their homes and cars. He was good at his job and with lots of hard work, created a successful agency.

Like other successful people, he was asked to become a leader in the local and then state association. When he was selected as the state president, he called me to assist him in writing his acceptance speech. Since he was thousands of miles away, we spoke by phone. I wrote a first draft, and we edited my words to become his words. He practiced reading it aloud and we revised until he was confident of each word.

For the next two years, we worked together to decided not only what to say and how to say it, but more importantly, we discussed the fact that he was a pioneer, a person who built a business with no assistance from his family. I understood why he was asked to lead, but he needed to KNOW that he was worthy to hold this position of honor.

Often, when confidence vanishes, low self-esteem is the culprit. Being prepared will take care of about 50% of fear and naming your credentials and passion are vital for boosting your self-trust.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” css=”.vc_custom_1619329678208{background-color: #f5f5f5 !important;}”][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”What Our Clients Are Sayings” font_container=”tag:h2|text_align:center|color:%23ffffff” use_theme_fonts=”yes” el_class=”org-heading” css=”.vc_custom_1619347327575{margin-bottom: 25px !important;}”][testimonials style=”single-photo” hide_photos=”1″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” css=”.vc_custom_1619333327304{padding-top: 25px !important;padding-bottom: 25px !important;background-color: #22b7d8 !important;}”][vc_column][vc_cta h2=”If You Would Like To Have A Private Class For Your Family, Group, Or Event, Contact Jan Whalen For Details.” shape=”square” style=”custom” add_button=”right” btn_title=”Book your Classes” btn_style=”custom” btn_custom_background=”#f1874b” btn_custom_text=”#ffffff” btn_shape=”square” btn_size=”lg” btn_el_class=”org-btn” custom_background=”#22b7d8″ btn_link=”|title:Contact” custom_text=”#ffffff”][/vc_cta][/vc_column][/vc_row]
