In Scott Kinder’s book, The Hill, he points out that the first step in overcoming fear is to identify it as fear, then accept it for what it is and move past it. Scott is a natural born teacher who is determined to assist civilians and businesses in forming high-performance teams. He translates his skills, learned in the U.S. Army Special Forces, to educate and empower business leaders on how to effectively weaponize their communication skills.
