How did i become a communication mentor?


Ten years as a teacher, twenty years of experience as a television reporter and presenter and more than fifteen years running self-recognition courses inspire the personalized Communication Trainings.

As a teacher I often felt that a student might have the knowledge, nevertheless as the result of the stress of the exam he is unable to speak. Unpleasant physical symptoms may appear: cracking knuckles, involuntary movements, sweating, palpitation, stammering or even the temporary dysfunction of logical thinking.

I saw it countless times as a reporter and presenter, that some guests are unable to handle public appearances, performances. Of course it only makes it even more difficult if they are presented with a question on something that relates to data, facts or events that makes him or the public uneasy.

So I created a special, personalized Communication Training, the AntiAnxietin and so far it proves to be a success. Its necessity is very well demonstrated by an international survey, which shows that one of the first fears is that of the public appearance with stage fright.

 

 

The aim of the training

Do you know the feeling when you are humiliated by a question, a gesture, an opinion or a sentence?

When you feel that the direction of a dialogue is no longer under your control?

Have you ever experienced the unpleasantness of stage fright during a public appearance?

 

Even the presentation, job interview, exam, report, orientation and dialogue with the best of intentions have moments when one cannot get a grip and finds no way out from the situation. The reason is simple: they lack communication and people skills, lack self-recognition, knowledge of a couple of universal rules and of course experience.

The goal of AntiAnxietin is to present and help master techniques which frees you from the symptoms of stage fright and helps you feel calm and confident during public appearances.

 

  


Overcoming stage fright

  • Preparation, practice
  • Adequate diet (different for everyone)
  • Personalized breathing technique
  • Personalized physical straining
  • Posture, movement, facial expressions
  • Tone
  • Exercise in being present

  • Imagination exercise

 

Confession...

I know what stage fright is like. I experienced it as a little girl when I recited poems at celebrations, or on stage at the ballet exam and during my first television appearances.  I remember that my heart was in my mouth, I was unable to smile, and my voice was shaky. I was among those whose symptoms vanished by the moments that mattered. There are people who are already nervous days prior to the event, some only right before and there are those whose most important moments are ruined by stage fright.
