BiteSized@NFTS: Confidence Surgery

Short course


What is confidence?    How is it different to self-confidence?   And where does confidence end and arrogance begin? 

Handling high-stakes situations such as pitching your project, a job interview, or a disagreement with a boss, giving presentations to an audience or doing something you’ve never done before - Confidence Surgery covers all of these and more. It is a practical, interactive and highly motivational bitesized session looking at simple, practical skills everyone can learn to build up and sustain the confidence and self-confidence they need not only to do well, but to shine and even enjoy the experience.  

The Confidence Surgery demonstrates that self-confidence and confidence are not mysterious gifts one has to be born with, but skills that can be practiced and perfected by everyone. Yes, everyone!

Feedback from other online training Sasha has provided for us include:

“I probably felt more comfortable doing this course over Zoom than I would have standing up in person reciting the same stories.”

“This course was delivered remotely and I was surprised at how well it worked. I felt at ease being at home and lost no focus. I felt that I was actually more honest about my faults and it gave a more informal feel”

 “A really great inspiring course with a very likeable course leader”

“Sasha had a very good structure and was passionate about their subject. I felt engaged and informed throughout.”

“The practice sessions were my favourite part. We got to think on our feet and really put the teachings to the test. The tasks set were easy to follow but hard enough that you really had to think to complete them”
