Comfortable in Her Skin

Tips you can use!

Try on your leadership shoes
Don't save your "powerful" new shoes for that special presentation. Wear them around the house to break them in.  Because it's hard to look and sound like a leader when your feet are killing you.

You need to eat. . .
The truth is your brain needs glucose to work. If you are hungry or dieting, your thinking may be fuzzy, and so will your speaking.   

Find your own "bridge phrase"
When you need time to think whip out your bridge phrase! It can rescue you from that dreaded silence. Practice, practice, practice till it feels natural rolling off your tongue. It will help you break the habit of relying on "um" or "so" to fill the void!
