A recent participant who attended Maximum Influence said that she “hated” getting up in front of groups to speak.
She told the group that as she pulled out of her driveway that morning, she was so preoccupied with the idea of getting up in front of a group that she almost pulled out in front of a garbage truck moving slowly down her street. It crossed her mind that a fender-bender with a garbage truck wouldn’t be good, but at least she wouldn’t have to give a presentation.
Can you relate to her experience? Many people can, as public speaking is often ranked first on lists of fears. The good news is that she learned to leverage her stress and quickly organize her thoughts, enabling her to deliver her message more confidently and effectively. At the end of Maximum Influence, she was so excited about her transformation that she asked us if there is a follow-up course she could attend to continue developing her influence skills.
