Presenting a new idea, convincing crocodiles or taking a decision? How do you achieve your goal with self-confidence and good preparation?
Do you sometimes fail to succeed in conveying the right information in a digestible manner? Remember that your knowledge of a subject is often greater than that of those on the receiving end.
Don't get carried away by wild enthusiasm. Thoroughly prepare and reflect beforehand on what you want to achieve, without getting bogged down in dry, boring material. Adapt your communication to the person that will receive and process your message.
Achieve the purpose of your communication.
Ever walked out of an impromptu meeting with a good and satisfied feeling? Then you were lucky. It’s better to leave nothing to chance.
“Why do we sit around the table?” challenges you to:
● appear confident and prepared at the conference table;
● clearly define your audience, purpose, core message and means in advance;
● exchange information in an efficient manner;
● frame your message and convey it in a clear and concrete manner;
● stand up in an assertive yet connective manner for your own interests;
● deal with resistance and difficult questions.
‘Team members spontaneously began to make suggestions, and the dry topic suddenly became a great and constructive meeting.’
