Lack of Confidence in dealing with authority can be a big disadvantage.
At work and in daily life we may need to hold our own and speak in groups or in meetings or in public. If we become too self-conscious & feel insecure with authority figures - we can magnify insecurities about ourselves out of all proportion to the situation.
Losing one’s edge like this can easily knock you off message, undermine 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 & present ourselves successfully and imbue our listeners with confidence. We need to demonstrate ease with authority - whether wielding or responding to it.
Too conscious an effort feels unnatural and is generally evident to others. Too nervous and you may seem incompetent, whilst a defensively nonchalant attitude can appear defiant or arrogant.
Many people acquire & improve the necessary skills as they go along. But an insecure foundation or uneven development can leave gaps in confidence and self belief - generating uncertainty and stress.
Such difficulties can be relatively easily overcome - mostly without digging up the past. Its largely about knowing how to construct the right positive states and inner skills and call upon in a reliable way.
With 30+ yrs of behavioural science experience I can quickly identify the patterns underlying your presenting difficulty and find exact and efficient means to make the necessary changes - guided by a modern understanding of the underlying neuro-psychological processes.
Precisely targeted personal change strategies will involve behavioural tasks focused on those precise areas in your own performance which need reshaping.
Personally tailored exercises will change your awareness and approach. Feedback is used to refine and strengthen the process through structured NLP process, integrated with patterns of hypnotic suggestion. Sometimes it is also useful to develop individually designed MP3 ‘booster’ tracks to reinforce the process.
Quite quickly these new patterns become part of your natural repertoire - you find yourself able to act and speak appropriately with authority in a natural way - and the change is complete.
