If you’re one of those ‘give me death but not a podium’ people, imagine for a moment never again having to be afraid of taking centre stage…never again being afraid of getting up or speaking in front of a group of people, never again delivering a weak message or muddied points, but instead having the confidence to say just the right thing at just the right time.

The most common example is the young female professional who unconsciously casts herself in the role of either "younger sister" or "daughter" when interacting with more seni ..read more

This article is not only for people who still have a long way to go reaching their career goals. It is also for those of you who are already high achievers. You have battled and won the war (well, sort of). You have gained esteem in your callings.

In part one of the article, I covered the importance of developing personal communications skills, the consequences of not possessing those skills, and the fundamental approach I take in helping professionals become master speakers.
