Fear of Public Speaking

On this level students experience extreme stage fright. They need encouragement to come to then stage and cannot often speak clearly, their body language is timid, and they try to hide as they are so uncomfortable with the attention.
They usually suffer from low self esteem, sabotage themselves, and don't believe they have anything useful to say. Students here often carry a trauma related to public speaking which makes them feel heightened discomfort and overwhelm.

Confidence Building

Students on this level may not be bad speakers, but they do not believe they have anything to offer and so they constantly try to reinforce their negative believes by slouching, mumbling, or any other forms of outward self sabotage.
When you look and listen to them, they are often intelligent, and some are not bad speakers, however they prevent their own growth due to a lack of self belief. The belief that they are not enough is common here.

Challenge the Status-Quo

Speakers on this level exhibit little fear, and are often good speakers, there are a few minor errors and mostly they come out and deliver a great speech, but there is just something not quite right when it comes to their performance, and the audience knows and feels it. Its subtle, it comes from their unconscious beliefs about what public speaking is and how it works. They put themselves in a spectrum, categorize themselves, and are heavily shaped by others' opinions. They are often good, but not great, because they hold themselves back due to their own beliefs or others' opinions of them.
They often look to the leader, just to make sure they are doing it "right", and by doing so they are not reaching their fullest potential because their focus is on others, and not on the impact of their delivery.

Becoming a Leader

Students on this level are confident and can often move an audience, but there is just something missing. They don't fully understand leadership or don't take it seriously enough. Their knowledge, what they have read or experienced is not yet fully expressed in their actions. They are intelligent and often know what they are doing wrong, or where they can improve, except the action part is either partly or fully missing. They would do silly things, like allow minor disruptions to become big, they would be unnecessarily apologetic - thinking there is valid reason for it, they would come unprepared thinking that the audience will forgive them.
But leadership is not about your IQ level, its not about making a "wrong" a "right", it requires a proactive approach, it has nothing to do with talent, and everything to do with the courage of being yourself all whilst serving others.

Fearless Warrior / Inspiring Leader

Copy of FOR HER (6)

Students here experience Public Speaking as an honour so they give freely, their fear is overshadowed by a massive passion of their own, they are motivated by their own results, they are inspired by those around them, and genuinely want to be of service. They are confident, bold, and most importantly courageous. They have the self-esteem to stand up in the face of adversity, and the will to persevere. They manifest charisma thus, they can connect, communicate, and empathize with their audience on a deep level. Sometimes you hear them talk about something irrelevant to you, but "it makes so much sense". They don't force people to do things for them, because people want to reciprocate their generosity. They do not hide or compare themselves, and so they can sometimes get unjust criticism for basically not being perfect, but they understand the folly of perfection and they play to their strengths.

Their awareness is high and their presence is felt. They have a direction and are largely looking for support and wisdom. Like a seed in fertile soil, leave them alone and they will grow, but those who keep checking up on them will be duly disappointed as they will not compromise on their values at the expense of making others happy.
