All job opportunities are posted in the employee break area at work. I take a look at it now and again, just in the off chance there is something that I would actually be interested in doing. When I saw a new position that was opening up, I knew that I wanted to go for it after reading all of the details of the job duties. I knew that I was going to have to work on a few things, like finding a public speaking coach who could help me excel in this area, but I also knew it would be worth it.
I knew that I needed the help of a personal coach in public speaking because while I was adequate at it, I knew that I was not the best. Recognizing weaknesses, especially in one’s own self, is vital in this world, and fixing those weaknesses is just as crucial. I was not looking for an online one hour course that would help me become a better public speaker. I wanted a hard core but quick course, and that is what I found at the Excellence in Speaking Institute.
I was able to find a two and a half day course in North Carolina that taught me how to be a better communicator. It was not that far from me, and I was able to request some time off work so I could help better myself. The class sizes are small, and that is what really appealed to me the most. I learned so much just that first day, and by the end of it I was confident that I would be able to do everything I needed to do if I was hired for the new job posting. I so impressed my boss and his boss with my desire to go after what I want that it was a very quick process to find out that I was exactly what they were looking for!
