What tasks are you self-conscious about doing in front of others? As a left-handed person, I don't like people watching when I do tasks in the kitchen or other physical tasks that I approach differently than other people. But I am certain that there are right-handed people who are self-conscious when other people are watching them. I noticed a man who was trying to pull his 5th wheel RV into a spot who simply was getting in a worse and worse position as others gathered around to guide him in. If you are self-conscious when people watch you, where do you think that feeling originated.

MB, an idea that worked for me. The next time you walk into a meeting think to yourself, "I'm an AUTHOR. Hundreds of people read my work and even though training is what you do, this "secret" will make your whole body take on an air of confidence.
Thanks, Billie. The politics used to be so bad where I work, that everybody tries to shrink themselves to an inch tall just to get by the jerks. The atmosphere is changing and I think we can all be more confident now.
Hey CJ, thanks so much. If I ever watch you golf, I promise I'll never watch on the first drive :)
LOL, I know how you feel CJ. Although, when I golf it is other people who should be conscious of where i am. Let's just say the word "Fore" is a popular word on the course when I play.
James, Cute !!!
Good catch. I was going to write "upset" or "nervous" or "embarrassed" for the question, but "flustered would be a much better word. I had to laugh at the scene you painted. Those of us with small families couldn't handle all that. You're a saint!
Thx. I HAVE a small family! It's just that I also have a very small "imaginary-space bubble" and pretty much zero need for guidance when it comes to my own "system" of doing things within the context of my individual circumstances. :/
ME Whelan, I hear you!
My mother used to say "We wouldn't care so much about what other people thought about us if we realized how little they do :)
I'm generally a very confident person "inside" . One situation where I am self-conscious is sometimes it's a case of a REALLY bad "hair moment" (not day) (My hair is more prone to those some people's hair is. Chopping it off is not me, though.
