Many highly skilled professionals feel that their presentation ‘persona’ – in meetings, at conferences and in interviews – is a weak imitation of their real selves. If that’s you, I would argue that the reason is not because you can’t present, but because no-one has yet shown you how to overcome the personal mental obstacles that inhibit you.
Obstacles that prevent you being energetic, engaging and inspiring. Obstacles that stifle your personality. Obstacles that can – ultimately – inhibit your career progression because you fail to impress when it counts: in meetings, at conferences and in interviews.
