While standing in front of the Be Yourself On Stage workshop audience, Jennifer told me she felt very awkward with her arms in a neutral position – casually down by her sides. Then I turned to the audience and asked, “How does she look?” Everyone in the audience said, “She looks normal.” What’s awkward for you comes across as great body language to your audience.

The big ah-ha moment for the workshop participants was that feeling awkward in front of your audience does not necessarily look awkward to your audience.
