We are what we repeatedly do

Too often neglected, rehearsing is the key to successful speaking. In all fields of activity, experts demonstrate that by rehearsing, they instill more confidence, generate more commitment and strengthen their leadership. What do Steve Jobs, Michael Phelps, Freddie Mercury and Yves Saint Laurent all have in common? Masters in their respective arts, they all gained…
