Course Description

Don't let fear keep growing. Take control and change your mind. This entertaining and stimulating interactive course will provide skills and strategies for people to build and develop their communication skills and self-esteem so they can be more confident at work.


Almost everyone at Cutting Edge admits to having fears. Marcus worries about Sam scrutinizing him to find mistakes. Casey thinks Carols always pouncing on her mistakes. Dion is afraid that he is considered to be too young for his role. Barney states that fear is all in the mind, while Steve reminds us that fear stands for False Expectations Appearing Real. Sam recommends deliberately tensing one’s body and then releasing fears in one big breath, while Carol asserts that fear can be handled with one of her verbal punches. Dion practices a mindfulness technique with Marcus who he hypnotizes into visualizing Sam as a chicken whenever Sam triggers his fear reflex.
