Tweetables and Quotes:
“While you learn many things in law school and have a very large body of knowledge to draw from, that doesn’t always translate into confidence presenting in front of others. Skills really targeting voice, body, mind and anxiety management are not usually a part of a law school education.”@consultwebs
“Oftentimes when we ignore physiological and emotional emotions such as anxiety, it ends up getting louder and stronger.” @consultwebs
“What happens when we’re nervous? Well, we tend to shrink in on ourselves. What happens when we’re at ease and confidence? Well, we tend to be more open. We tend to stand taller, have our arms by our sides rather than crossed. All of these things can convey a lot of confidence to our audience.” @consultwebs
“We tend to place so much value on the content of our communication that we forget about how much we’re communicating nonverbally.” @consultwebs
“If someone wants to hire us, it’s in our best benefit if we can appear calm, collected, confident, at ease.” @consultwebs
“When it comes to persuasion it’s not just about the argument itself and the content. It’s the feeling of showmanship, being able to command attention via physical presence. And again, this doesn’t have to be something you’re born with. This is something that we can work on and it can grow.” @consultwebs
