I often ask clients, WHY?
Why is it important to listen to you and what you have to say? So, why should you listen or read what I have to say? Because I have a LOT to say! Working with teens has enlightened me that they too are full of knowledge. I believe my daughter chose ME. She is here to teach ME. As each day passes, I learn and grow.
As I stand in front of a class of teens, they teach me as I teach them. We laugh. We play. We learn.
2017 blessed me with the grade 7 students at Beaconsfield High School. Some had courage, some gained courage and some are still searching. They stood and spoke their truths: depression, anxiety, family, autism and cats! It was rewarding Teen Talk Program. The proof is right here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ctzbWtx_qd0
Why does it matter? Being a teen can be a difficult time. From what I can remember I never felt heard or understood. There is something special about teens. I remember what it was like to be 13-14 years old. I was painfully shy (yes I was!). If only someone had given me tools to speak with more confidence. I am the example. Adele sees and watches and take in my every move. ”Mommy, can I do Teen Talk when I am older?” My heart melted that morning.’Back then’ there were less distractions. Yes boys were still on our minds! But nothing like what teens seem to face today. So giving them a reason to share and matter is crucial in my opinion.
Why do I do it? I do it, to do better and be better.
My goal with every client whether it be a teenager or a business leader, is to have them
Speak with confidence
Say what they really mean and say it well
When we intertwine these three areas of speaking, only your authentic voice can rise out and shine.
What is it going to take for you to find your voice?
