Grab hold of what?

Great letter to the editor of the Washington Post by Ed Barks, a communications trainer, author and speaker.

The letter is in response to an article on stage fright that recommended, among other things, to "grab hold of the podium and with your hands squeeze as hard as you can."

Riiiiight. That's some of the worst advice I've ever heard.

I agree that nervousness and fear are a natural part of performing. Like athletes, performers and speakers can use that adrenaline to propel them and give them an exciting and lively presence onstage. As long as they manage it and don't let it control them, a little anxiety can be quite helpful.
