You can finally exhale.

 

Your public speaking nerves no longer have to be a barrier to your successful facilitation of college class discussions.

Whether you suffer from minor nerves or downright debilitating anxiety when you get in front of your class to speak, you are certainly not alone.

Did you know public speaking consistently outranks death as the greatest fear reported by people in the United States?

I'm here to offer you a reason for hope.

Public speaking courage can indeed be learned. (I know because I was once a terrified speaker!)

No more shying away from leading difficult discussions because you doubt your ability to manage the conflict that might emerge.

No more lecturing from a script because you don't trust yourself to think of what to say on the spot.

No more feelings of dread driving in to campus on discussion day.

You're going to enjoy teaching in the ways you've dreamed, with the conviction that it's worth it and the assuredness you have what it takes.

Your students lives are going to be transformed by the powerful learning experience you courageously offer them.

And your colleagues are going to admire and be inspired by the example you set as a visionary leader on campus.

Are you ready to finally show those nerves who's boss and become the outstanding facilitator you are meant to be?

I'm ready! Let's do this!

By the end of this course, you will be able to...

Quiet your inner critic

and replace it with an affirming and motivating mindset so you don't sabotage your own efforts

Ease your physical discomforts

and facilitate your class without the distraction of jitters, sweaty palms, and a racing heart

Nurture your spirit

and care for your own needs so that you can take on your challenges in a healthy way

Articulate why your facilitation is important

and use that awareness as a reason to push past your nerves 

Identify your unique facilitation strengths

and show up to class with knowledge of why you have the potential to facilitate well

Name what you stand for as a facilitator

and use your conviction to drive your courage in stepping out of your comfort zone

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

If you're thinking this sounds perfect for you but you're still not sure...

 

You can be confident in giving the Courage Builders Community a (30 day, risk free!) chance, if any of these sound like you...

1. You are currently teaching or about to teach a college class and you wish you didn't feel so nervous speaking.

The Courage Builders Community will give you tools to transform your experience right from the first module, so you can apply what you learn without delay.

2. You are doubting whether you can ever be an outstanding facilitator, because your nerves seem impossible to shake.

You are not alone. A supportive resource awaits that will provide you with powerful tools to replace fear with courage, joining the ranks of countless others who have successfully done the same.

3. You're an introvert and have a love-hate relationship with facilitation.

Introverts are the best kept secret in the facilitation world! You've come to the right place to gain the clarity you need to courageously unlock your unique potential.

4. You're still paying off grad school loans and can't afford to go back to school for teacher education.

This program offers top tier instruction from an experienced and distinguished former college professor at a significantly lower rate than a traditional graduate level university course. Plus, if you complete the course and it doesn't work for you, you can request a full refund up to 30 days after enrolling--you've got nothing to lose!

5. You'd really like this support but are worried that because you've managed your nerves thus far, your case isn't severe enough for such a program.

There is no right or wrong amount of nerves needed from which to build more courage. If the results offered here appeal to you, don't let your concern over anyone else's journey get in your way.

That's me! I'm going for it!
