In this episode, Tyler and I discuss how people approach public speaking, the difficulties we contend with, and how to become confident in yourself and your speaking. We talk about how Tyler coaches people into learning to speak with confidence, communicate effectively with other people, and how to win over an audience. We also discuss how our perceptions and expectations of ourselves and others contribute to how we feel about ourselves. Whether it’s going in expecting the worst or going in and expecting the best, your perception can begin to shape your reality. Being present and working in the moment also has a huge role to play in connecting with an audience – being able to take in and work with your audience’s energy is also a hugely important process. Finally, we get into how stories are made and told in different ways for different purposes – and how one should go about learning to tell their stories for maximum effect.
