-Check your pride at the door.  

Are you struggling to find your leadership voice? Longing to discover your rhythm?  Are you hitting your stride or is your stride hitting you?  For those struggling in confidence to speak, there is a host of reasons that undermine your message to speak well.  

Let’s count the ways:

  • Lack of experience
  • Insecurities/fears
  • Character weakness
  • Past hurts/brokenness
  • Weak leadership
  • Lack of vision, lack of skill, lack of faith
  • Lack from detractors and many more.

How do you get past the gauntlet of deterrents to move forward?

There’s not a quick fix to building a strong voice, but there’s great news–quality coaching can inspire you, encourage you, and fortify your speaking. 

Moses, one of the iconic leaders in the days of Exodus from Egypt, faced a battery of barriers, and yet he overcame through courage, faith, endurance and also some key coaching support. 

Piggybacking on the backs of giants, Chosen to Speak is a network of leaders and coaches whose heart is to uplift and come alongside the leader who is plateaued. 

How do you get started? 

 Humility is at the core.  It takes humility to acknowledge that you need to change.  It takes humility to face your fears and step up to the microphone.  It takes humility and faith to forge ahead!!

But don’t stop reading now.  There’s hope because there’s help.  The struggle to get over yourself becomes part of your story. 

I know firsthand

For over 15 years, I didn’t know how to get past a major speaking deficiency.  I didn’t who I could trust to help. I didn’t see a way through.  Yet the Lord brought two coaches in my life who made a real difference, who walked alongside me with encouragement, support, and guidance.

Not just a one-time teaching, a module, or a program, the Chosen to Speak experience is designed to uncover your calling, your character, and your context to thrive in sharing your voice with those who need to hear it the most. 

Your voice needs to be heard.

Ok, you may need to grow in refining your message and strengthening your resolve, but how are you going to move forward without a champion to empower your confidence?

On a scale of one to ten, (ten being highest) how confident are you as a speaker?

Be honest with yourself. 

Perhaps you’re already a good speaker, but you want to get better?   Our experienced coaches specialize in providing the right support.
