You’ve been assigned a new project at work, or perhaps you volunteer for a local not-for-profit organization. Either way, you have some important phone calls to make, or you have a meeting coming up, or - maybe - they’ve asked you to lead a workshop next month. As you sit down to think through the “presentation” you’ll make (on the phone, face to face, or from the stage) you find yourself thinking, “Am I ready for this?"
This month at Get Momentum we’ve published the information and activities you need to be a better, more effective presenter.
Be Seen as a Leader
Do you talk to clients on the phone?
Do you manage meetings with small groups of people?
Do you ever “take the stage” and present in front of large groups?
If you have something to share, and an audience to share it with, you need to improve your presentation skills.
In fact, research from Harvard Business School shows that leaders who develop certain mindset-based techniques as they prepare for discussions, meetings or presentations are more likely to be viewed as having “expertise, competence, and commitment” and “someone others want to follow."
It may be vital to your personal and professional success to be able to present your ideas proactively.
People make snap decisions about your quality based on how confident you present yourself.
I have a short quiz that will help you focus on improving your presentations.
Whether you’re talking to a someone important on the phone, leading a team meeting, or standing on stage, getting better will have a big impact on your career…and your life.
