What Are You Doing to Ensure Success for Your Audiences?

Quick quiz….

As you sit down at your computer and get started with the planning of your workshop, talk, or retreat session, which of the following questions goes through your mind?

(a) What information should I give my audience? or

(b) What can I do to ensure success for my participants?

My students tend to initially focus on the first question “What information should I give my audience?”

Is that you too?

It’s the place most presenters start, and unfortunately stop…

If you’re thinking only about what you want to say, then…

The session is focused on you…good for your ego, not so much for your audience members.

I get it… You’ve amassed a wealth of information and experience on your topic, and…

As an expert, you want to give a lot of value to your audiences, but…

Quantity of information doesn’t automatically mean value nor does it mean success for your audience members.

Think of yourself as an audience member for a moment…

If you’re being hosed down with lots and lots of information, how do you react?

How easy is it for you to use the information you’re hearing?

Too much information is overwhelming, and instead of trying to figure out how to use it…

You probably go into MEGO mode (My Eyes Glaze Over)!

Truthfully, your audiences don’t need more information…

They can find all the information they want online.

The value that you provide is in helping your participants use the information that you’re sharing with them…

So ask yourself, “What can I do to ensure success for my participants?”

Think about the elements that make a session work for you when you’re in the audience.

Do you like discussion, case study analysis, problem-solving, hands-on practice, or lecture?

Your audiences need, want, and like these things too.
