At the end of one of my workshops, Derek, a corporate trainer and coach blurted out, “I’ve been reborn. I’m a whole new presenter now!”

What had triggered this “aha” moment?

Derek had come in with a long-held assumption that when he took on the responsibility of giving a presentation that it was his job to do all the talking…to carry out the whole “dog and pony” show…

During the workshop, he learned that a presentation doesn’t need to be a 1-way information dump…

As a matter of fact, he was doing a disservice to both himself and his attendees by doing it all himself…

Think about it… if you’re doing all the talking…

You’re disregarding the knowledge, experience, and needs of the people in the room…

Your nervousness likely won’t let up. All eyes are on you…for the entire session!

You’re easily missing out on valuable information that will allow you to truly help your participants solve the problems that brought them to you…

You’re creating and encouraging passive attendees. They become bored, unmotivated, and inattentive if your style of presenting is not their preferred style of learning. There they go….thumbs on their smart phones…

Back to Derek…

When he stopped doing all the work himself, and started incorporating other teaching techniques, he got lots of great feedback and he saw the positive results in his attendees first hand.

If your goal is to create a transformation in your attendees and make a life-changing difference in their lives, talking at your audience alone just won’t do it…
