Mission

Speak Confidently

EIY aims to provide a professional, tailored and practical learning environment in which every member progressively enhances Public Speaking and Professional Development skills.

Core values

Speak Confidently 

  • Learners’ growth is EIY’s commitment. Constantly grow yourself, classmates, learners and colleagues. The version of you tomorrow is always better than the version of you today.
  • Constructive feedback is an essential ingredient in the improvement process. There should be no hierarchy in the giving or receiving constructive feedback.

Confidence philosophy

5 steps to gain Self-Confidence

  • Step 1 – Self-awareness: being able to be aware of yourself is the first step to gain self-confidence.  When you’re aware of your strengths for example, you can be more strategic about nurturing them further. Same with your weaknesses. When you have a clear lead on what you aren’t, you can take steps to fill in gaps or improve.
  • Step 2 – Self-understanding: That means acknowledging your weaknesses and strengths.
  • Step 3 – Self-acceptance:  It means accepting the paths you’ve taken in the past that have led to where you are today. Best of all, accepting who you are helps you set realistic expectations, something that will build your confidence as you achieve goals over time.
  • Step 4 – Self-respect: That means seeing and believing in your own worthiness as a human being. And it can mean seeing your value in more specific ways too.
  • Step 5 – Self-validation: Where you regularly assure and endorse yourself without needing outside input but it is from day-to-day internal self-validation.
