VOICE TRAINING ~ Managing Fear

Public speaking is quoted as one of the most feared activities in the modern world today. It rates even higher than financial worry, loneliness and death! It can be debilitating and prevent people from communicating and sharing all the great ideas they might have.

When facing an audience, do you suffer from:

“Make the FEAR of public speaking your slave and not your master”

The issue of fear of public speaking is tackled on two levels:

# 1

We will teach you strategies to manage and control your breathing which will give you greater control of your speech. You will also learn strategies to eliminate dryness in your mouth, reduce the rapid rate of delivery and speak with confidence and clarity.

# 2

We need to examine the cause of your fear, and using some of Martha Beck’s Coaching tools, identify your fear, name your fear and tame your fear!

Fear can be caused through external means – a very large audience, equipment that is not working, feeling intimidated by the audience,  OR

Fear can be caused internally – a lack of preparation, poor self-confidence, inadequate skills and experience in public speaking.
