Calm and confidence are qualities that everyone-not just presenters and performers-wants and needs in their everyday lives. Confidence is important. But calm and confidence together are a magical and powerful combination.
After years of struggling with communication in school, business, and public, Patricia Stark achieved this state of "calmfidence" not through some single moment of revelation, but through years of small insights, "aha" moments, and constant practice. Today, after helping thousands of students and clients find their own voices and abilities, Stark makes her methods available in Calmfidence-a comprehensive guide to improving your self-talk and communication skills in any social interaction. Inspired by her coaching workshops of the same name, Calmfidence gathers a unique set of mental tools, experiential practices, and natural remedies for quelling the self-sabotaging habits of the Inner Critic.
With warmth and compassion, Stark guides you in how to identify and overcome your blockages to communication, how to react skillfully to strong emotions as they arise, and how to deal with setbacks in your Calmfidence journey without self-judgment. You don't need some rare talent to communicate well. When you engage with the exercises and encouragement in Calmfidence, you'll learn how to stop surrendering to fear and become the calm and confident communicator who has always been waiting within.
