As a French native speaker, born and raised for 30 years in a country were excellence and perfection are key to succeed, it took me courage and commitment to step in and start to host Teleconferences, Seminars, Workshops and other public speaking duties.
I made mistakes, I tripped on words, my hands sweat heavily, my head burned often until the day I realized that most of the people in the room were listening actively and were supportive!
Each time, it is a success over my fear (I don't have it anymore!) that helped me to build greater confidence!

Groundbreaking ideas are no longer a luxury when success is contingent upon an organization's ability to adapt, innovative, and improve. We need look no further than Kodak, Sears, or Sony for validation that status-quo thinking is the fast-track to failure. How, then, can organizations break free of conventional thinking to spark creativity?
News is bad for you. It leads to fear and aggression. It hinders your creativity and makes you sick. We should stop consuming it, says Rolf Dobelli, who's abstained for years

Many of my clients comes to prepare and find peace of mind while in transition in a multicultural environement either to overcome conflicts, or to learn how to make meaningful decision for them, their family and their organizations.

The pieces of information which go on and on on CPP and FAX NEWS from one and unique perspective: sensational FEAR and who is to BLAME.
From the article,
"The media feeds us small bites of trivial matter, tidbits that don't really concern our lives and don't require thinking. That's why we experience almost no saturation. Unlike reading books and long magazine articles (which require thinking), we can swallow limitless quantities of news flashes, which are bright-coloured candies for the mind.[...]
News is toxic to your body. It constantly triggers the limbic system. Panicky stories spur the release of cascades of glucocorticoid (cortisol). This deregulates your immune system and inhibits the release of growth hormones. In other words, your body finds itself in a state of chronic stress. High glucocorticoid levels cause impaired digestion, lack of growth (cell, hair, bone), nervousness and susceptibility to infections. The other potential side-effects include fear, aggression, tunnel-vision and desensitisation.[...]
Society needs journalism – but in a different way. Investigative journalism is always relevant. We need reporting that polices our institutions and uncovers truth. But important findings don't have to arrive in the form of news. Long journal articles and in-depth books are good, too.[...]"
