A lot of people practice invisibility, and then ultimately complain about being invisible. They’re not noticed – because they don’t make themselves noticed! They don’t speak up, don’t make themselves known. If you have a fear of getting in front of a group, your responsibility as a leader is clear: to take on the challenge of conquering that fear. Your fear of public-speaking is a crutch, and it can be a great liability to the progress of your career. Losing that fear is a process – you’re never going to change a lifelong habit overnight. But the confidence you will gain by learning to do something that you never thought you could do is tremendous: it will change the way you look at every challenge you face for the rest of your life.
