Speak with Authority
Clarity. Confidence. Connection
If you are like 70% of people, at some point in life you will suffer from “impostor syndrome”, wondering how long it will be before somebody realises you are faking it. Even high-achievers aren’t immune, especially in high-pressure situations. You may know from experience how self-doubt can seriously undermine you in important meetings and presentations.
You are not alone. I can help, using a powerful combination of body and mind techniques. I teach professionals how to deal with the gremlins that hamper them, and focus instead on critical variables that are guaranteed to make a positive difference. I will help you connect with your authority and embody it, so that you are better able to communicate with greater confidence and clarity in any situation.
About Attention Space
My name is Stuart Harris. I set Attention Space up in 2004, choosing a name composed of two valuable factors that are under constant siege in our always-on world. Over the years, the demands for your attention have only increased, leaving little space to think clearly and breathe freely.
For over 40 years I have been seeking out the most effective body-based approaches to address the challenges that matter to people in work and life – overcoming mental limitations, improving performance and enhancing well-being.
I am a certified NLP coach, NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) trainer and Embodiment Facilitator with an MSc in Applied Positive Psychology.
The Creative Process
How often do you have a conversation that really makes a difference to how you think and feel, to what you do and how well you do it?
When you engage a skilled personal coach you can be sure of having this sort of conversation regularly.
When you engage the right personal coach, you are getting somebody who is trained and skilled in helping people like you create positive change in your life.
Your initial focus with the coach may be your professional life, or it may be your personal life, but the coaching is likely to have a positive effect on your whole life. After all, it’s the same brain in the same body wherever you are and whatever you’re doing.
The International Coach Federation defines Personal Coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximise their personal and professional potential. (source)
Positive Resilience is your capacity to prepare for, recover from and adapt in the face of challenging situations. You probably know some people who bounce back from tough times, some who struggle and some who fall apart.
Is that just the luck of the draw? Is resilience something you’re born with or is it something you can learn? Is resilience nature or nurture?
The answer is it’s both nature and nurture. Whatever your “natural” level of resilience, you can improve it.
Think of Positive Resilience as deliberately honing two parts that need each other to work together. One of them is knowing the right thoughts and actions to apply. And the other is cultivating the reserves of mental/emotional energy to apply them.
The more you apply the right thoughts and actions in everyday life, the more you build up reserves of energy. And the bigger your energy reserves the more you can apply them. It’s a virtuous circle.
