When it comes to business, the steps and processes and even the reasons they exist are important. It doesn’t do any good to have assembled an excellent team if they don’t understand what to do or how to do it.
But if you don’t know how to get your audience to care enough to soak it in, none of the rest matters.
There is a key to it and you must have those elements. Whether it is one-on-one or in front of multitudes the key to training success is twofold. Making them care, and giving your message with creative clarity.
How your presentation is crafted can fuel all presentation outcomes, including effective training. Because isn’t know-how the greatest tool for the foot soldiers who deliver your product or service?
It takes more than being a PowerPoint aficionado to make a great presentation.
Suffering from stage fright? That’s normal.
But let me tell you some things that really will make you feel better:
1. A good presentation will lead you through your talk.
Memorization? Not needed
Fear of boring the audience? Don’t make me laugh.
No confidence? Fuhgettaboutit
Apatheic audience? Let me show you how to make them realize they need and want to hear what you have to say.
2. A good presentation keeps their attention.
It’s how the hearer hearing hears what the sayer saying said. (I don’t think Dr. Seuss said that, but it’s true. nonetheless.)
Tough Room? It’s not always possible to be excellent and popular. But they aren’t paying you to be popular, are they?
3. A good presentation will compel, persuade, and communicate with clarity.
You could be seen as the person who saved the day. And everybody wants to know the hero.
