Stephanie Scotti, writing for Smart Brief rallies us into managing our fear of giving presentations. Here are my key insights from her piece.
- Whether you’re heading into your first or 50th presentation, you’ll be attempting to manage your anxiety—don’t worry, that fear is a normal human response to public speaking
- By using the A.R.M. (Acknowledge, Reframe, and Manage) approach, you can minimize your stress, so begin by acknowledging your nerves to gain perspective
- Reframe your mood by setting up some vocal exercises before your presentation and finally; manage the moment—even if things don’t go as planned, stay smiling!
