Lack of Confidence in exercising or dealing with authority can be a big handicap.
At work and in everyday life we need to be able to deal with authority figures. We
may need to hold our own or express opinions, speak in groups or speak in meetings
or public settings. In these situations we can become overly self-conscious and
feel insecure - even begin to amplify insecurities about various aspects of ourselves
which are irrelevant to the present situation.
Losing the edge in this way can easily knock you off message, undermine the credibility
of a sales pitch or ruin an opportunity for job advancement or self promotion. Whether
pitching for work or in a job interview - we need to express and present ourselves
successfully and imbue any potential buyer or employer with confidence. In all such

Too conscious an effort to maintain one’s cool both feels unnatural and is generally
all too evident to those around. Too nervous and you may be thought incompetent or
evasive, whilst too nonchalant an attitude may appear defiant or arrogant.
Many people acquire the necessary skills and improve them as they go along. But sometimes
an insecure foundation or uneven development can leave gaps in one’s performance.

It makes sense in developing these capabilities and improving one’s performance to

With 30+ yrs of behavioural science experience I am able to quickly identify the
patterns underlying your presenting difficulty and to find exact and efficient means
through which to exert leverage and bring about change.
This is achieved through precisely targeted personal change strategies. Change will
involve a combination of behavioural tasks focused on those precise areas in your
own performance which need reshaping.
A sequence of personally tailored exercises are constructed to change your awareness
and approach in formerly challenging situations. Feedback is used to refine and
strengthen the process through structured NLP techniques, integrated with patterns
of hypnotic suggestion. Sometimes it is also useful to develop individually designed
MP3 ‘booster’ tracks to which you can listen to reinforce the process.
Quite quickly the new ways of proceeding become a natural part of your personal repertoire
- you find yourself able to act and speak appropriately with authority in a natural
way - and the change is complete.
