I gave a ‘Ted Talk’ last week to a big food company. They were wonderful but I was nervous – because my son was going to be in the audience. Crazy I know!
Here are 3 self coaching questions which got me back on track – suggested by Andy McNab, ex SAS.
- What would I do if I didn’t feel this way?
- What would I do if I didn’t give a damn what other people thought?
- What would I do if it just didn’t matter?
Then just do it. Works a treat! The presentation was really enjoyable.
