nervous in these


asking a question in a meeting, expressing your opinion in a group, talking in group discussions, being put "on the spot"

 introducing yourself, pitching your ideas, one-on-one conversations, speaking to authority figures such as your boss, dating

interviewing, networking, talking to strangers, performing in front of an audience, and giving speeches and presentations

You get the idea—it's all those situations where you have to speak or perform in front of others. When you’re overly afraid of these situations, it can stop you from developing relationships, graduating from school, getting a job, advancing your career, and achieving your goals. Ultimately, you can't do the things you want to do. Your quality of life goes down.

The fact is, public speaking anxiety and social anxiety have the same root cause. This program is designed to help you overcome both public speaking anxiety and social anxiety.

Here's the path I recommend for overcoming public speaking anxiety

  1. 1
    Take the SELF-PACED COURSE: Learn the fundamental concepts and techniques.
  2. 2
    Sign up for the Desensitization Laboratory (LAB) workshop: Get 16-hours of personalized coaching and practice the anxiety management techniques with others who share your fear.
  3. 3
    Join a public speaking practice CLUBKeep practicing the anxiety management techniques and maintain your gains.

 Sign up for one-on-one coaching (optional). If you cannot attend a Desensitization LAB, sign up for at least 2 coaching sessions so you can learn the framework. This will give you what you need to join a Club.
