In 8 Weeks, Turn Fear and Anxiety Into Confidence

Feel at ease with public speaking, job interviews, meeting new people, dating, and more!


How Many of These Problems Plague You?

Over the past five years, students have emailed me that they joined my classes because...

  • “If I'm ever in a social situation, I don't try anymore—I stay invisible and slip away as early as possible.”
  • “Even though I know the material, when I get up in front of a group of people I just blank. I stutter, stumble over my words, and lose my train of thought. I sweat and my heart races.”
  • I feel crippled by my inability to engage in conversation, to think of interesting things to say, to develop close relationships, to participate in meetings, etc."
  • "I feel inadequate, boring and uninteresting and it's really affecting my quality of life.”
  • At work I have trouble leading.”
  • Being quiet and super introverted will not help me be recognized among my co-workers, who are more outgoing.”
  • “It took me about a year to have the courage to sign up for your class. I’m not a public speaker. In fact, I hate it."

If you've had similar struggles, you've come to the right place. Down below you'll get to read what students have said after the classes, but first...


What's the Solution?

Hi, my name's Chad Elliot!

I grew up extremely shy and socially anxious. It took me years of struggle and lost opportunities to overcome that. Yet, companies like Amazon and Microsoft now hire me to train their teams. And through my classes and coaching, I've helped hundreds of people break out of their shells and gain confidence and communication skills. 

Refined over the past five years, my Think on Your Feet Mastery online class series will teach you how to:

  • Alleviate performance anxiety.
  • Eliminate mental blocks.
  • Unleash your creativity.
  • Give a strong presentation, even with zero preparation.
  • Handle tough interviews.
  • Tell stories that grip your listeners.
  • Use your voice and body to become more dynamic.
  • Ask fascinating questions to connect with new people.
  • Talk about anything in a more engaging way.
  • Use simple strategies to get out of your head.

The great news is this won't be the boring drudgery that often comes to mind when we think of learning. Instead, it will be so enjoyable, it's addictive. Here's why...

Silly Games or Brilliant Approach?

Many people are used to a mind-numbing approach to learning that involves hours of boring lecture. (Perhaps with a few dull exercises thrown into the mix.)

But that's a sure recipe for failure. 

So in my classes you'll practice everything through fun, improv-style games. Improv was created for comedians and actors, but it's become a popular method of personal development. Here are a few reasons playing these simple games is so useful:

  • Unscripted Ease. Many people panic without a script. So by practicing in an improvised way, you'll to feel ready for anything. 
  • Retrain Your Brain. Because you'll laugh and have fun as you stretch your comfort zone, you'll create new mental associations. It rewires your mind, so situations you used to link to fear become linked to pleasure.
  • Learn by Doing. Knowledge isn't enough. These games will give you enough practice to learn these skills behaviorally. That way you can use the skills in the real world.
  • Motivation on Autopilot. Rather than try to force yourself to attend class just because it's good for you, you'll feel eager and excited for class because it's so enjoyable.

However, out of the hundreds of improv games, only a fraction are beneficial to the average person. So I'm extremely selective. In fact, I've designed most of the games we do in these classes myself. So it's super fun, but far more useful than a run-of-the-mill improv class. It's really a one-of-kind series of classes.

Luckily, now you can join from anywhere on earth...

Why are Online Classes Better?

In our virtual classroom, you'll participate in exciting full-class activities. Then you'll effortlessly move to “breakout rooms” and practice in small groups. You'll enjoy numerous perks doing classes online:

  • No Commute. This saved you hours of time and hassle, and may even save you from having to miss entire classes.
  • Sharper Focus. Fewer distractions mean you and your classmates will pay closer attention and learn more.
  • More Efficient. Breakout rooms and other features allow us to move at a faster pace.
  • Modern Training. Communication in the modern world is largely virtual. I've designed this training to guarantee you know how to communicate effectively both in person and online.
  • Fewer Nerves. If you feel anxious and scared, taking classes online can feel easier and less intimidating.
  • Top Quality. Rather than be at the mercy of whatever is near your home, you'll get the best training available.

Thanks to these and other advantages, online classes are a surprisingly fast, easy, and effective way to learn. 

The good news is, the next series starts soon...

FAQ

What's covered in the classes?

Each class in the series has a different focus and builds on previous classes. Here's a brief listing of what we cover each week:

Week 1: How to Think Creatively Under Pressure.
Week 2: How to Avoid 7 Common Mistakes.
Week 3: How to Give a Powerful Presentation.
Week 4: How to Tell Captivating Stories.
Week 5: How to Unleash Your Charisma by Mastering Nonverbal Communication.
Week 6: How to Enjoy Deeper, More Engaging Conversations.
Week 7:
How to Get Out of Your Head and Be In the Moment.
Week 8: The Most Powerful Exercise You'll Ever Experience.

While each week has a different focus, ideas do get revisited. For example, nonverbal communication is the focus of the fifth class, but we'll also work on it in most of the other classes.


Plus, you'll get tons of fun practice with each skill through simple improv games. That means, as you learn to handle everything from interviews to presentations, you'll build your ability to think on your feet creatively, too.

How does this compare to other classes?

It's unlike than anything else out there. It's far more practical than regular improv classes. It's far more fun and active than regular communication or public speaking classes. And much of the material simply isn't available elsewhere, because I designed it and refined it to meet the needs of my students.

What if I have to miss a class?

Most people have to miss a class or two during the series. I understand and designed the series with that in mind. Naturally, it's best to attend as many classes as you can. But missing one or two won't stop you from getting phenomenal benefits from the overall series.

Is it okay if I'm not a native English speaker?

Many of my students over the years have spoken English as a second language. They've always done very well in the classes.

While your English skills don't have to be perfect, you do have to be conversational. You need to be able to understand most of what people say in English. And you need to be able to speak it well enough to be understood most of the time.

Can I drop into a single class?

No, the classes are meant to be done as a series. You wouldn't get the same experience if you just joined a single class. Also, there are a limited number of spots, and they're reserved for students who commit to the entire series. If people came for just a class or two, the class size would fluctuate dramatically and it would hurt everyone's experience.


But remember, once you finish the series, if you aren't satisfied with the results, you can get a complete refund.

What if I sign up but can't attend for some reason?

While I offer a complete refund if you attend the series and aren't satisfied, I can't promise a refund if you simply don't show up. There are a limited number of spots and the classes sell out. So if you sign up but don't attend, it takes a spot away from somebody else.


If you sign up for the classes and discover later that you won't be able to attend, let me know as soon as possible. If I can fill your spot with someone else, I'm happy to give you a refund or transfer you to a later series.
