The firm’s Director, Tom Harris is an ardent business coach, and he relishes his role, helping aspiring professionals to fulfil their potential. The award-winning entrepreneur frequently hosts workshops and tutorials to help the firm’s workforce develop their knowledge and skillset.
The objective of the workshop was to provide the firm’s workforce with advice and guidance to overcome their fears.
1. Take Action & Start Small
Most people will have many fears, and Mr Harris urges people to rank them in order of ‘fear rating’. The business owner advises people to start small and tackle the least significant one first before working towards conquering the biggest fear. The Live Innovations director contends that by starting small and taking actions toward overcoming the lower priority fears, it then helps build momentum, courage and motivation to tackle the number one fear.
2. Don’t set a time limit
Unlike most goals where a time limit is necessary to instil a sense of urgency, Mr Harris believes that when it comes to conquering fears, people should refrain from setting a deadline. The business owner believes that most fears have been built over a lifetime and therefore will take time to tackle. Instead set small milestones to meet and address fears regularly. For example, if someone suffers from Glossophobia, Mr Harris urges them to seek out the opportunity to speak publicly once a week to build up consistency and confidence.
3. Recognise Progress
When working to overcome fears, Mr Harris states that it’s essential to reinforce the experience in a positive light. A classic example is someone suffering from Glossophobia; once they have committed to speaking publicly, the first time will feel like a disaster, however when reflecting on that experience someone can acknowledge that they pushed past their fear and accomplished their goal.
