,Presentation skills are a standard feature in any manager or leader worth his salt. How we come across verbally and visually is crucial.
We are one package that should inspire trust. So it is important to build your presentation skills like a pro if you want to succeed in your career.
In the coming weeks I will be delighted to facilitate such a session for managers and leaders and wanted to share with you some teasers.
Presentation is a 24x7 task
Good persuaders do not need to switch to persuasion mode. They just feel is naturally. This frame of mind can be learned and practised by simply look at one's self from a third person point of view. How am I perceived by others? What they see, hear and understand about me, does it persuade them about what you want to communicate?
Preparation, Preparation, Preparation
You need to prepare to persuade. You need to go the ground work. Can you imagine the amount of research that goes into a persuasive presentation? You need to have a cast iron argument and be prepared to address all possible challenges. Preparation and understanding the detail is the rule of the game.
Self Confidence and Self Management
Having self confidence is crucial. You first have to persuade yourself about what you need to persuade others about. So self confidence in what you want to persuade others in is a must. So the best bet is always to immerse yourself in the matter and build you confidence in it. It just takes self discipline.
Master the Science of Persuasion Psychology
Persuasion psychology is a big area but the notions are fairly basic, based on the veracity of the logic and facts, the authority of delivery and the perception of the target audience vis-a-vis the subject matter.
Am looking forward to share these and more practical aspects of the power of presentation in a persuasive way in the coming weeks in in London, New York, Singapore and of course Malta.
