Here’s a time converter to assist all of you around the globe in converting 10am EDT to your local time.

Background on This Chat Topic

As we stretch ourselves to learn and grow, we sometimes feel that sense of incompetence and insecurity. The old saying “Fake It ‘Til You Make It!” kicks in to boost confidence and carry us forward. The question is: Does that make us appear fake? Is there a negative side and does it outweigh the confidence boosting value?

Join People Skills Twitter Chat Sun. Sept. 1, 2013 10am EDT.

So we will explore this long held mantra and see where ita takes us. Joining me as co-host for this week’s Twitter chat will be executive business coach Lalita Raman. Lalita is an executive coach who assists executives and professionals to succeed in the business world of continuous change and uncertainty.

Some questions to ponder before we engage on Sunday:

  • How often are we aware of our lack of confidence?
  • When has “Fake It ‘Til You Make It” helped you in those moments of awareness?
  • Why has “Fake It ‘Til You Make It” taken on a negative meaning after so many years?
  • What other approach works to boost your confidence in the instant you need a boost?

These are just some questions to get us thinking before we begin the people skills chat this Sunday.

So bring your personal perspective, your favorite beverage, and join us from around the globe this Sunday in the USA — Sunday Sept. 1, 2013 at 10am ET — to explore Fake It ‘Til You Make it and how it impacts people skills.

I also invite you continue this chat by joining the Google+ People Skills Community to be a part of all the people skills discussions not just on Sundays but everyday 24×7.
