“Front of the Room” confidence is important for managers, teachers, civic leaders, and others whose work requires speaking to groups. It can even be one of the keys to being perceived as a leader by others. One’s credibility is enhanced and one’s career can be advanced by being good and looking good in front of the room.
This confidence is rooted in having something to say, being organized, and knowing the audience. Many people struggle with these challenges especially when there is not much time to prepare.
