In terms of communication skills, I want to share a story of something that happened to me, which is demonstrative of how I work with people. I was in a relatively new position as a counselor in an agency, and the director was suddenly unavailable to give a public talk. I was asked to step in and represent the organization despite my lack of experience there.
I focused on staying relaxed because I had to go in cold without time to prepare, write, or memorize anything. I continued to concentrate on feeling grounded as I was sitting in my seat while they were introducing me. As I stood up to talk, I kept reminding myself to remain relaxed while I spoke to the group, so I could enjoy the process.
I addressed the topics that I was asked to speak about, and then I sat down to answer a few questions. Several colleagues who were there commented afterward that they really enjoyed the way that I communicated, and I did too. I do not mean to brag or say I did a great job, but rather I mean to say I felt comfortable while I was speaking, and I think other people can sense when we feel comfortable.
So, one of the ways I can provide support is to help you learn to feel comfortable within yourself while you communicate, and with practice, you can get really good at that.
