My presentation, “Speak Up for the Record & Your Well-Being,” will take place 11:45 to 12:45. Details below.

Learning how and when to speak up is a challenge for most of us. Take it up a few notches when it’s your job to capture a verbatim record.

Learning how and when to speak up on the job or in life requires self-awareness; the ability to connect with what you feel and need in the moment while maintaining acute focus on listening and capturing the record; keeping track of exhibits; and myriad other tasks.

Like mastering steno, learning how and when to speak up is both an art and science, a skill that can be mastered.

The same is true for mastering our thoughts and emotions. Mastering a new skill requires repetition and practice, just like every other skill.

In this workshop, participants will explore:

▶ Using your breath to quiet your negative self-talk and connect with your body

▶ Understanding how feelings, needs, expectations, and assumptions drive your behavior

▶ How to own your story, sovereignty, and your voice in service of the record and your needs
