Did you know?
The fear of public speaking is the most common phobia - ahead of spiders, heights and even death! The National Institute of Mental Health reports that public speaking anxiety affects about 73% of the population. The majority of careers involve some level of public speaking, from participating in meetings to giving presentations to clients, colleagues, or boards.
Y4PS can help your organization’s leaders, both seasoned and emerging, become calmer, stronger and more confident when they present, whether it is onstage or while interacting with others.
Have you ever wondered how confident speakers make it look so easy?
Have you noticed that no matter how prepared you are, anxiety and fear can hijack your brain, body, and voice? If so, you are far from alone. Public speaking can challenge even the best communicators.
The good news? It’s possible to get control of your nervous system so you can bring your best, authentic self to your next public speaking opportunity. What it takes is a whole new approach to the mind-body connection.
This innovative six-hour course introduces a new way to address public speaking challenges and guides participants to a new level of calm and control. Each insightful lesson includes practical advice and easy-to-follow instructions for preparing, rehearsing, and delivering their best.
"For a presentation to hit the mark, it's important to focus on the top one, two, or no more than three goals. If you're trying to say everything, you'll end up accomplishing nothing."
