Coach reveals the secret to speaking in front of a crowd—Be yourself

SHERMAN, Conn. - May 31, 2022 - PRLog -- Greta Muller has heard every reason for not liking to speak in public: It makes you nervous, you don't like the way you look or sound, people might think you're not smart enough, and many others.

She has an answer for each excuse, along with techniques and guidance to help you overcome every challenge you face when speaking in front of a crowd or a small group, or even when you need to mingle at a gathering.

In Opening Your Presence, Muller conveys her 30 years of experience as a coach, actress and consultant to help anyone — and she emphasizes anyone — speak in a compelling way with less fear and self-consciousness. In this second edition, which was recently published by Emerald Lake Books, Muller adds virtual presentations to the first edition's support for nonprofessional speakers who find themselves in front of large or small in-person groups.

The key in all cases is to be yourself.

"I want you to celebrate your successes, and objectively and kindly address and master anything that separates you from your most authentic presence," Muller writes in Opening Your Presence. "You are wasting a valuable resource when you do not appreciate and use the most precious resource you have — you."

She also gently reminds readers that people who can communicate effectively usually are the first to get promoted or make important and beneficial personal and professional connections.

When you open your presence, she says, you learn to:
  • -- Clear away your fears and misconceptions.
  • -- Prepare for your encounter.
  • --  Craft your message.
  • --  Utilize the tools at your disposal.
  • --  Present with confidence.

Muller first worked as a spokeswoman and actor before transitioning to being a coach and consultant. Throughout her career, her warm personality and passion for authenticity have played huge roles in her approach to communication excellence.

She's worked with Fortune 500 companies, start-ups, nonprofits and boutique agencies, as well as privately with individuals seeking to advance their careers and presentation skills.

With that experience, she has recognized that the effort to speak and champion a cause can make even the most confident person question their abilities.

"The neural pathways in your brain get rutted, just like any well-traveled road," Muller writes. "Without testing and repairs, your thoughts and ideas become ingrained as absolutes. I can almost guarantee there are thoughts you have about yourself and your abilities that are not true — and they don't work to your benefit. Sadly, most of us wait until something is incredibly painful or unacceptable before we make significant changes. I encourage you to take small steps that will help you see yourself through a new lens."
