Today’s episode is a practical one - how can we prepare well and find our voice as we lead others when we need to speak up? How can we prepare for a small group or a PTA meeting or to give a talk and still do it within our own personalities?

Jo and Steph share their journey’s into public speaking and how they prepare for those settings in different ways within their own personalities. 


Discussion questions:

1) How does the idea of leading a small group / giving a talk / speaking up in a meeting make you feel?


2) How do you currently prepare for a situation where you need to speak up? What things have you found that help? What things haven’t worked so well?


3) Who are the people who can give you feedback on your speaking and leading? Do you ask for feedback? Do you give helpful feedback to others?


4) Where would you like to grow in speaking up? What steps can you take to intentionally engage with this?
