A highlight for me this week has been coaching a client on presentation skills. She is a delightful young woman with an inspiring story of overcoming adversity to emerge stronger, less fearful and more confident. Here she was telling me her story of courage and how she came through the other side and there I was coaching her on how to control nerves when public speaking. Seemed ironic really but to her being on stage and speaking was a terrifying thought. I gave her a few pointers about breathing techniques, focus, shifting energy and preparation to help control the nerves. Here is a summary of some of the other points we discussed to help her become a confident speaker.
With this final point, my client not only inspired me with her story but imparted practical advice to use every day about being resilient, moving forward and undertaking new challenges.
