Being in charge

I am an awkward person. (very much so) Basically I've been asked if I can be in charge of an after-school program at a school and I am nervous. I'm sure it'd be easy, but I'd be almost totally alone (unless there's enough kids which I'd have a helper) but can I really do it and take my own session? 

On this same vein, one of our dojos is supposed to be mine (basically I'm in charge) and I'm doing such a terrible job at it Smiley Tongue 

 

How to people be in charge/responsible for things? What is the secret? Smiley Tongue

@N1ghtW1ng - that's awesome! Congratulations on being asked! 

 

Well the secret is.. there is no secret! (helpful right?!) Smiley Very Happy

But I will say that having confidence in yourself and your abilities is really important - if you've been asked by someone to do the job, it means they believe you can do it - they've seen something in you that makes them trust you're the one for the role.
You are more than likely much more capable than you think! 

 

Another tip is to look to those around you that you aspire to be like - whether they are acing a similar role, or seem really on top of things - model the good things that they do, and ask them for advice and insights. 
Don't be afraid to ask for help. Equip yourself with good knowledge, skills and backup plans if you're nervous going into a situation.

Every time you go into a situation that feels out of your depth, you'll be challenging yourself to grow! 

Good luck Heart
