ON THE FEAR OF MEETING OTHERS

Would you agree that the fear of meeting others may be a fear of speaking in public? I often read that the fear of public speaking for many adults is more fearful than dying. I have worked with many professional speakers over the years and most will admit that they feel some anxiety at the beginning of their speech. So our fear is a common thing. And because public speaking is the number one way to advance in your career, many work on and commit to overcoming their fear. They find a nonintimidating, safe and supportive environment; a speech coach, a speaking class, and a world wide organization called Toastmasters Club. People love to speak about themselves. Reach out to new people and begin the conversation with open ended questions.

The Coach sez . . . to the extent you give people what they need, they will give you what you need. This helps you overcome your fear in speaking to others.
