And every time you try to do something about it, you either get stuck or can’t even get started.
Don’t worry! You are not alone.
I helped to facilitate meetings in Spanish for several years, so when I had to go to meetings in the US, it was quite a new challenge!
So, I did what you are probably doing. I observed. I listened. I wrote down the vocabulary the participants were using. I tried to model the #facilitators who did a fabulous job. (I was lucky to work with the best!)
Eventually I caught on and was able to gain the #confidence I needed to participate more and even facilitate or lead some meetings.
Believe in yourself, and you can do it too!

What do you find MOST DIFFICULT about participating or leading meetings in English or with international colleagues?
