I had a client who had mixed emotions about his new job. He had spent over nine months in search of what he considered to be his dream job.
He had diverse emotions because that ‘perfect’ job had one drawback that he didn’t count on: he would have to conduct bi-monthly presentations to his regional corporate managers and directors.
This responsibility really had him worried which is why he came to see me.
Halfway through the first session, we concluded that his worry was based on his fear of not having the right answers when questioned about the facts of his presentation.
This fear was brought about by his lack of knowledge.
He had little courage because he felt that he did not know enough on the subject that he would present.
Antidote: increase his knowledge as much as possible. Whilst in his present job, during his ‘notice period’, we decided that he can learn as much as he can about his role and what is expected of him.
Courage and confidence comes from knowledge. Always be willing to learn.
