Speaking is essential for communication and communication is essential for connection, and the thirst to connect drives human behavior. So it was worth a try.
My first meeting, I got up in front of the group and shared my Ice Breaker speech, a 4-6 minute way of introducing myself. I completed it and the sky didn't fall in. The intense fear of judgement dissipated and I survived. I more than survived. a surge of confidence welled up and I felt the urge to do it again. This drive was nurtured by welcome feedback, gentle encouragement and concrete tips for improvement. The fact that each member had been through the Pursuit of Excellence created a safe space to be vulnerable and put myself out there.
I encourage you to join us, each Wednesday from 7-830 pm at the Origins at Longwood Station in Nanaimo to amplify your leadership, communication styles and jump into the public speaking arena, fully supported!
