Qatar Social and Cultural Center for the Blind organized an interactive workshop entitled: “ Recital with Confidence,” introduced by Professor Jawahar Al – Manea via the zoom online meeting app, during which enemies of trust, emotion management skills when recital and speaking out, and how to gain confidence during recital were identified.

At the beginning of the meeting, the coach shed light on the importance of confidence when speaking and that it is one of the most important skills that must be learned when speaking in front of the public and through which information is communicated comfortably and in a distinctive, special and different way.

Al- Manea pointed to the importance of knowing and understanding who the enemies of trust were, most importantly, ideas that might be negative, directly affecting one’s self-confidence, how information was communicated to the target audience, as well as other factors such as the lack of linguistic and cultural inventory, inadequate ranking of ideas, etc.

She also pointed out that self-alienation is one of the most important factors that influence one’s self-confidence, such as the lack of awareness of negative feelings and the failure to get rid of them so that they do not accumulate and they affect trust. She added: We must make ourselves a priority and not blame the past or the upbringing. By this way, negative feelings can be easily eliminated.

The coach stated that self-acceptance and the focus on strengths were among the most positive steps to build self-confidence, as well as to accept, deal with and make positive self-reconciliation. The workshop included many exercises, practices and questions that stimulated the thinking of the present audience and their interaction with them by asking different questions and queries.
