As I rose from my chair, I could feel sweat collecting at my temples and in my armpits. My chest thumped so quickly I was sure the room of my colleagues could hear it. As I uttered, “Welcome,” my voice began to quaver and I tried to put my attention equally on suppressing my desire to cry and reviewing everything I had learned in my public speaking classes in high school and college. ‘Speak directly to each person in the room. Take a deep breath between sentences. Use your hands to bring your message from your body to your audience.’ But all I could bring to mind was a vision of my fourth grade self—standing at the front of my classroom—drooling and slurring words as I tried to get through my first current events report. ‘I’m twenty-three years old chairing a friggin staff meeting,’ I chided myself. ‘I’ve spoken to thousands of people as a motivational speaker. I should have this.’ But I didn’t.
