Stop, Drop and Roll: Managing Conflicting Personalities (One Day)
Trainers, Group Leaders and Project Managers are often faced with a variety of participants: on a team, with internal and external clients, and training participants. Different ages, cultures, values and priorities can cause participants in a group activity or meeting to become confused, angry and disruptive. Learn skills in the Stop, Drop and Roll technique: Stop reacting, Drop the level of tension, and Roll ahead with an agenda. Put out fires by gaining clarity with basic rules, be heard by different personalities, and manage differences to get the best result from each participant.
Listen-Up Presentations: Fresh Approaches to PowerPoint (One Day)
PowerPoint (or Keynote) is useful, but was never meant to be a stand-alone education tool. Unfortunately most presentations are unclear, cluttered, vague and nap-inducing. Presentations benefit from structure, visuals, and story-telling techniques to create compelling materials. Participants will learn how to tell their story to an audience and use visuals that relate and wake up the material and the participants. (Participants will not be taught any PowerPoint or Keynote techniques, this course focuses on content, storytelling and using images for best effect.)
‘Winging It’ Doesn’t Fly: Preparing, Practicing and Presenting Without Fear
Presentations use important business communication skills, yet many presenters don’t plan, prepare, practice or present with conviction or polish. Many presentations are a mash-up of previous work, put together too quickly and with little thought. This course helps presenters organize their thoughts, plan a presentation, and practice public speaking. The emphasis in this class is presenting material: eye contact, voice control, preparing a deck to fit the time, handling Q&As, and managing an audience.
