Wednesday, July 24, 2019, 9:00 AM

This is a 2 Day Public Program delivered for up to 12 attendees. Each attendee is coached across the Four Quadrants: Executive Presence, Message Organization, Delivery (from PPT at the screen, seated using handouts and standing using notes) and Q & A. Each attendee is videotaped 7 times with coaching feedback and tape review. Day 1:  Skill Acquisition o  Initial Skills Assessment:  Each presenter is videotaped introducing him or herself to the group.  The purpose of this is to ‘see and hear themselves’ as others do.  Videotaped & Reviewed  Executive Presence Skills o  Focus for Confidence:  Presenters learn a skill which helps them think more clearly and come across as confident, sincere and engaging. o  Natural Energy:  Presenters learn a series of skills which include how to stand and move, what to do with their hands, how to control their vocal energy with volume, inflection and momentum or pace.  When managed, the presenter looks and sounds more natural, credible and interesting and delivers with passion, energy and confidence.  Actively Coached, Videotaped and Reviewed  Message Organization o  Consider your Listeners:  A brief exercise is introduced which helps each presenter think through who his or her audience is so that the message can be tailored to their listeners. o  Organize your Message:  Presenters are introduced to a ‘Know This, Do This and Believe This’ format.  These are the 3 great reasons we message to others.  When we use a format we apply logic to the flow of our information with the listener in mind. o  Forms  of  Influence:  The 6 major forms of influence are introduced to presenters along with the universal formula for sharing a story, example, personal experience or case study.  Speakers are then encouraged  to  employ  forms  of  influence  in  their  presentations  to  make  their  messages  more memorable and persuasive. Delivery Options o  Tips for Creating and Presenting from PowerPoint:  Problems and general best practices are shared around the use of PowerPoint.  Sessions can be tailored to other forms of delivery. o  Delivery Options are reviewed:  We cover the most common methods of delivery and how to blend the message content with the physical presence skills practiced earlier in the session.  The methods are:  Extemporaneous, Speaking from Notes or Handouts and Speaking from PowerPoint.  Actively Coached, Videotaped and Reviewed   Day 2:  Skill Application  Review Day 1 Skills:  A brief review of Day 1 begins the final session.  Delivery Skills o  One-to-One Practice:  Each presenter practices delivering his or her presentation to a partner.  This is done seated speaking either from their PowerPoint, notes, handouts or laptop. o  PowerPoint  Presentation:  Each presenter delivers a 5 minute presentation applying all the Day 1 skills.  Actively Coached, Videotaped and Reviewed o  Seated,  Speaking  from  Handouts,  Notes  &  Tablet:    Each  presenter  delivers  a  brief  3  minute presentation  seated  speaking  from  notes  or  handouts  or  Tablet  applying  all  the  session  1  skills.  Actively Coached, Videotaped and Reviewed o  Story: Presenters learn the concepts that create powerful ‘Stories’, and then dissect two examples of stories (one written and one video). o  Establishing  a  Viewpoint:    Each  presenter  learns  a  formula  for  sharing  a  viewpoint  in under  30 seconds.  This is a ‘whole life skill’ which is used frequently in our professional and personal lives.    Interacting with my Listeners o  Answer the Question Directly:  Presenters learn to listen for the issue and answer the question first, before developing the answer.  This directness has them come across as credible and transparent.  Actively Coached, Videotaped and Reviewed o  Listen for the Issue and Rephrase Challenging or Confrontational Questions:  Presenters learn how to listen for the issue and then reposition the question, staying true to the issue (this is not ‘Spinning’).  When done properly, this
