As a presentation coach, I see what you describe all the time: someone who is trying to control their nervousness comes across as uninteresting and dull because they lack energy.

My advice:

Change your paradigm about the sensation you are labeling as fear or anxiety. Instead of labeling it as “fear,” think of it as energy. Channel that energy.

Scale up the energy level! You will command more attention and project more confidence and charisma. I cannot stress this strongly enough. 80 – 90% of the presenters that I observe do not expend enough energy. Hence, they come across as uninvolved, uninteresting, and unenthusiastic.

Thanks for the post.

Ehealth of the greatest hurdles is overcoming misconceptions in the minds of regulators, doctors and patients alike. I just returned from a trip to Germany and colleagues there are amused about America's 3rd World-like medical records situation.

The first time I saw Tom Peters speak, I sat in the front row -- so I got the full effect. He rants. He bellows. He patrols the stage like an angry wrestler.
