What are the main causes of public speaking anxiety?

The main causes found are: “A low self-esteem, foreign language anxiety, readiness for language speech, loss of memory and little experience with public speaking.” A low self-esteem means that you don’t believe enough in yourself that you’re capable to manage your public speaking anxiety, this causes you to perform even worse while doing so. Foreign language anxiety makes you very nervous when you have to speak in public, but in a different language, this kind of anxiety makes you also perform worse. Loss of memory, speaks for itself, it occurs often that when you’re speaking in public you forget what you wanted/were telling. Also if you have little experience with public speaking it can make you not just less capable but it will also have an impact on your self-esteem.

What can you do about public speaking anxiety?

It is important that you learn to influence the named causes. This is hard to do on your own, especially when you want to impact your public speaking anxiety on a short notice. Because your public speaking anxiety is not a thing you can change by using logic, it is important that you learn to control your subconscious. You need to learn how to manage your anxiety, therefore is it important that you get a training. As a result you will get rid of the underlying cause of your public speaking anxiety.

In the training led by Herman Otten, you learn to get grip on your subconscious. There are many causes of public speaking anxiety, but it doesn’t matter if you have a low self-esteem or loss of memory, because in the training you learn how to deal with these problems that cause you to have public speaking anxiety. Therefore you will perform and work on the underlying causes that apply to you. For example: He teaches you how to keep talking even if you forgot what you were saying, or even if you didn’t know what you will be telling. He does this by giving you the tools to influence your unconscious mind and letting you get familiar with these tools by letting you use them right away.

The way Herman was sensitive with our team really put me in a comfort mood. Everyone who joined the workshop were very positive about the public speaking course. The way we learned to listen to the one speaking, and how to listen was incredible. Everyone was very satisfied and enthusiastic..
