5 WAYS HOW TO INSPIRE PEOPLE AROUND YOU


“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I may remember. Involve me and I will learn” 

– Benjamin Franklin

Being able to inspire others is not an overnight or a week’s work. When you want to be a source of positive energy and inspiration for others, you have to work on your behavior, thinking pattern, communication, and presence impact.

Let me ask you something. Did you find any person in life who has inspired you? If yes, think about the characteristics of that person and how that particular person actually inspired you and for what.

3

People always talk and also often advise each other. But, does everybody behave the way they are told to? Does everybody follow the advice given by their parents, relatives, or friends? Of course, not! So, what is it that enables certain individuals to inspire others? If you are also making your career as an inspirational public speaker, you should be familiar with the tactics and ways of inspiring others.

1. Relationship 

In the industry of public speakers, a quote of Theodore Roosevelt is pretty common and quite useful -“nobody cares how much you know, until they know how much you care”.

So, first of all, you should know how to make relationships better. Since this career will introduce you to new audiences of different backgrounds and regions, you can’t expect to know everyone beforehand. Thus, you need to learn the art that helps you develop a connection with your audience. It could be your body language, facial expression, gestures, words, or the aura you carry with yourself.

2. Influence with Actions

All of us know that actions speak louder than words. So, apply this rule in your life too. When you are on the path of inspiring others, you should leave the ego behind. Just be yourself and let your actions (i.e. your speech) speak. When you are amazing at something, express it through your actions rather than bragging about it all the time.

3. Active listening

Even though you are going to be an inspirational public speaker and you will be doing most of the talking, you still need to listen actively. When someone from the audience or even people around you in real life is sharing something with you, asking questions from you, or simply saying anything, you ought to listen to them carefully. This is one of the ways of letting them know that you care for them.

4. Resilience

People inspired by those individuals automatically who are resilient and emotionally strong. So, focus on building your resilience. When you gracefully handle situations physically, mentally, and emotionally, people find it awe-inspiring. It is true that people love hearing stories but it is only half-truth. The complete truth is that people most love it when these stories are true and based on real-life experiences.

5. Enthusiasm

Inspiring public speakers are enthusiastic and passionate about inspiring the people around them. Reflect your enthusiasm in your actions, speech, and whatever you do. The energy you ooze tends to energize and motivate other people too. So, smile, show positive energy, and caring concern.

And the last tip is to remember a saying by Aristotle:

“To write well, express yourself like the common people, but think like a wise man”. 

This goes perfectly for speaking as well.

AN OBSTACLE TO THE EPIDEMIC. DISTANCE LEARNING. TRANSITION TO A REMOTE FORM


Due to the spread of the Covid-19 epidemic, most countries imposed quarantine borders, cities, and educational institutions. The situation will complicate the transition to distance learning, but do not panic. It is necessary to implement with great control the methods that are resorted during the “usual” quarantine associated with the annual flu.

It should be borne in mind that the obstacle to the spread of coronavirus infection should be accompanied by a large explanatory work on medical methods of combating the virus and preventive measures.

jobsora

Let us examine in stages how to organize the transition to distance education, and what should be done for the effective operation of educational institutions.

Preschools

All preschoolers are immediately transferred to home learning. Parents and guardians are provided with advisory information containing the norms and standards of child education, in accordance with age. Methodological materials are distributed that tell about the infection, its distribution options and methods of dealing with it. In matters of upbringing, care and maintenance of the child for the entire period of quarantine, the responsibility lies entirely with the parents.

The work of preschool educational institutions for the entire period of quarantine is prohibited.

Schools

To effectively transfer students to home learning, due to the threat of a massive spread of infection, it is necessary to take measures to digitize curricula and programs for each parallel of study. It should be done for all of subjects. At the same time, access to the materials should be available to all teachers of a particular subject, employees of the administration at any time.

It is necessary to take emergency measures to bring to the attention of working personnel, teaching staff, administration and students methods of combating the disease and methods of its initial diagnosis. Create telephone lists of emergency medical facilities.

Since distance measures require the availability of computing power for storing and processing information, documents, grades tables, summary reports, students’ finished work, abstracts, working protocols, it is necessary to provide online access to them for all participants in the educational process. Provide it everyone in accordance with their competence and position.

School methodologists and head teachers should provide for the unimpeded communication of all teachers, their access to administrative documents, school orders. Timely provide reference materials that relate to the work of the teaching staff involved in remote work for the period of quarantine.

Consider the transition to a remote form of work (learning):

  • Students must be provided with materials that are directly related to the educational process (specifically the subject being studied). It can be electronic articles, textbooks, digitized books from the school library, etc. Publication of links to materials is allowed in thematic communities, personal correspondence with students (parents);
  • For parents of students who switched to distance learning, easy access to information regarding the performance of their children is organized. For this, you can use ready-made software solutions or use third-party developments (many schools have their own electronic portals);
  • For the purpose of operational monitoring of academic performance, document storage is organized on the server of the educational institution to record the grades and works of students submitted after conducting thematic control and verification work. Software packages for the implementation of the task, the teaching staff chooses independently;
  • To coordinate the work of teachers, an uninterrupted mobile (Internet) connection is introduced;
  • The head teachers and methodologists of the school monitor the execution and implementation of the orders of the district education department. The development and implementation of working documentation, bringing its content to employees remains with the head teachers of the school;
  • Access to the school’s server (cloud storage, mail) is remotely controlled by a staff system administrator or computer science teacher;
    The overall coordination of the “mid-level remote education institution” remains with the principal.

During the quarantine period, it is necessary to exclude the personal transfer of certificates or documents from the parents of students personally. All workflow is translated into electronic format. The mechanism for certifying school documents in electronic format is being developed by the district department of education. Any abnormal situations that may be associated with the learning process, taking into account the working time of the teaching staff or administrative tasks, are solved in telephone or video mode, using modern ICT methods.

All changes in the work plan and difficulties in the implementation of the learning process, teachers report to the head teacher or director. The higher management systematizes the information and transfers it to the district department of education, awaiting further orders.

Higher education institutions

The similar measures are for institutes and universities. Employees of the educational institution provide electronic access to general guidelines, lecture lists. Between the curators of the groups and the elders, stable mobile communications are being established for fast communication and solving on-duty issues. Remote access to teaching aids is implemented through regular computing power. In special cases, it is necessary to provide for remote lectures in video mode.

Students, teachers, and administration workers are informed about methods of combating infection, recommended medications, and methods of providing first aid.

The general nature of the measures required to be taken is as follows:

  • Ensuring free remote communication of students by group / stream / course. For such connection any chat rooms, online rooms, social networks are suitable. The choice of the method implementation method is up to the students. Performance control is assigned to the head of groups, curators, deans of faculties;
    It is planned to create cloud storage for the exchange of educational information, if one is absent. The task is performed by full-time computer engineers or computer science teachers;
  • A separate communication channel is being created for educators, methodologists, and administration workers of each faculty. It is allowed to use any available methods that do not contradict the current legislation;
  • The possibility of remote lectures by teachers. Organized the possibility of communication with students, the issuance of training materials, and the reception of finished tests;
    It is the responsibility of teachers to select educational materials that are relevant to the items in the current curriculum, if none are available in the electronic library;
  • Working questions between participants in the educational process are carried out in a hierarchical order.
  • For the entire period of quarantine, all entertainment events related to the life of the university are excluded. Any abnormal situations are handled by telephone with the curators of the groups who decide to transfer the information received to higher authorities.

Courses and seminars

Any educational activities are also subject to transfer to distance learning. In accordance with the specification of courses, seminars, other events, methods of communication between the participants of the educational process are quickly developed. In a short time, it is planned to lay out educational and methodical material and students’ work. We are working on free online communication of all course participants with curators. Implementation methods are selected by each group independently.

Digitization of working documents is being carried out for operational monitoring of performance, maintaining reporting documentation, issuing certificates of completion of courses.

Software and software tools necessary for the implementation of tasks are selected and implemented by persons conducting the courses.

STRONG EXECUTIVE PRESENCE IS NOT MAGIC NEITHER AN INBORN POWER. YOU TOO CAN DEVELOP IT!!!


Executive presence is a crucial topic that cannot be ignored anymore. It is not only required in large organizations but also in smaller ones. Very few executives are aware of developing self-awareness and understanding the significance of what influence they impart on others or what kind of aura they develop around themselves through their confidence and poise.

1 (2

But, few questions arise with the increasing popularity of executive presence development:

  • Is executive presence only for executives?
  • Are only executives taking sessions for developing executive presence?
  • Is this is just a fashion and fad?
     

The answer is a big NO!

Building executive presence is a top priority goal for mid-level managers, directors, team leaders, and even, in some cases, new hires and interns as well.

Every employee who is interested in becoming more polished focused, and prepared for handling organizational challenges and stepping on the milestones one after another is a suitable candidate for executive presence coaching.

According to a survey carried out on 600 professionals engaged in coaching either as coaches, HR professionals or executives, led by Brian Underhill and KimceeMcAnally, 57% of the organizations that hire coaches and around 40% of coaches identify presence as one of the two purposes for their coaching. The other one is leadership development.

It implies that organizations indeed seek robust executive presence in their employees. So, being an aspiring employee, enrolling in sessions for developing an executive presence at the earliest will hugely benefit you in the long-term.

How will Executive Presence benefit your Career?

When you seek to move ahead in your career, building executive presence is of paramount importance. Regardless of what level you are at now, developing a strong presence will make you notice in the eyes of your colleagues, subordinates, and senior executives sooner.

Executive presence may seem like a magic potion but it is more of an agile and fluid approach that helps you adapt to different communication styles and audiences, and demonstrate readiness and connectedness with the audience. Showing up with confidence, reflecting positive energy, maintaining composure, and putting others at ease are the traits that help an employee getting promoted and appreciated.

Sylvia Ann Hewlett, the CEO of the Center for Talent Innovation and a leading expert in the field of talent management, mentioned in “The Sponsor Effect: Breaking Through the Glass Ceiling” that –

“52 percent of men and 45 percent of women believe promotions to senior management are based on a candidate looking and acting like C-suite executives”

One of the studies conducted by the Center for Talent Innovation in 2012 revealed that “executive presence accounts for 26 percent of what it takes to get the next promotion” and also affirmed that “presence alone won’t get you promoted, but its absence will impede your progress”.

So, the sooner you look for such sessions that help in developing executive presence, the better for your career.

Great leaders are not defined by the absence of weakness, but rather by the presence of clear strengths.

HOW TO ENHANCE YOUR PRESENTATION DELIVERY WITH EASE?


“There are always three speeches, for every one you actually gave. The one you practised, the one you gave, and the one you wish you gave.”

– Dale Carnegie

Indeed! Every presenter wishes to deliver a great presentation but only a few of them succeed. Effective business presentation skills are quintessential to kick off the enthusiasm in your audience and bring them out of their wandering thoughts, sleepiness, and boredom. Whether you are trying to pitch your services to potential clients, discussing your business plan to a potential business partner, or promoting your business at a large event, excellent presentation skills can be a powerful tool to attract and engage the audience.

4

Regardless of how well you prepare a speech or PowerPoint presentation slides, your way of delivery can change the game. Let us discuss six ways to improve your presentation delivery.

1. Be Precise

A study carried out in Canada, by technology giant Microsoft, suggested that the attention span has now plummeted to 8 seconds from 12 seconds in 2000. So, better be brief while delivering a presentation rather than meandering from one folklore to another to explain your point. Prepare a strong narrative with important facts and figures to increase audience engagement.

2. Speak The Audience Language

Doing demographic study and matching the semantics of your audience can be very helpful. For instance, if you are going to sell snowboards, your semantics is going to be a lot different than if you’re going to present a financial plan and layout for investors. Match the semantics as close as possible thus you are able to speak the language of your audience.

3. Develop your voice

According to the concepts of Evolutionary Psychology, people respond better to deep male voices and high female voices. Though it takes a lot of practice, it is something that you can achieve with time.

4. Use Constructive Words

Don’t think about monkeys. What did you imagine? Now, you get why it is important to avoid such phrases. Instead, you should tell your audience what they could do. In the same way, also avoid saying things like “I hope you will enjoy this presentation”. Rather, say “I am confident that you will enjoy this presentation”.

5. Groom Your Body Language

Keep a comfortable distance from your audience. Distance between 2.5 and 7 feet is deemed to be suitable when it comes to presentation. Rather than surfing the audience with your eyes, make eye contact with one person at a time. Make yourself appear confident by taking care of certain things such as:

  • Shoulders back
  • Hands open or slight closed
  • Smile slightly enough to make the audience more comfortable
     

6. Ask Questions

Asking questions from the audience is a great way to keep them engaged. When the audience is questioned, people tend to pay more attention. This can be as simple as taking a pause to ask if the audience understands what you are explaining.

On a final note, more than 30 million presentations are created every day. You need to know what a good PowerPoint slides or presentation decks look like. Therefore include compelling and meaningful images in them. As discovered by Prezi 33% of people believe that visual stimulation is critical in maintaining their engagement.  Limit your sentences per slide rather than writing out blocks of paragraphs. The slides need to be relevant to keep people stick to what you want them to see.

Keep all these tips in mind while delivering your presentation. To become a great presenter, start cultivating effective business presentation skills right away.

LEADERSHIP PRESENCE COACHING: DEVELOP AUTHENTIC POSITIVE INFLUENCE WITH PEOPLE AROUND YOU


“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” – Maya Angelou

Have you ever been asked or questioned yourself whether you can be a leader? Do you deem yourself as leadership material? Do others in your circle perceive you as a (good) leader? You may think that you are a great leader, support your team well, and complete your projects on time; your peers may have different views about you. Why? It’s because being a leader is not enough unless you have a strong leadership presence. 

1-1 (1)

Leadership presence is something that is often regarded as something mysterious and magical. In reality, it is all about your ability to inspire and build confidence in everyone around you including your team members (to follow you), peers (to show that you are credible and capable), and senior executives (to demonstrate that you can achieve milestones and take their mission ahead).

Sessions for developing executive presence
To be honest, leadership presence is a skill rather than a trait. It means you can actually develop and cultivate it. How? The shortest possible answer is leadership presence coaching. Dylan Walsh from MIT Management Sloan School shared in one of his articles-

“In-factory soft skills training returned roughly 250 percent on investment within eight months of its conclusion.”

Since employees’ stronger leadership presence directly benefits an organization, developing this skill can help you go a long way and become a profitable asset for your organization.

Is Leadership Presence Really Important? 

First, we want to ask you a question – Have you ever heard a popular saying that “all critical decisions about you are made in your absence”?

It’s true. With leadership presence coaching, there is one thing certain that you could shape. That is what people think and say about you in your absence. So, when it comes to important opportunities and events, such as your promotion and assignment of high-visibility projects, your ability to inspire confidence in people can play a huge role.

When you have a strong influence on your seniors and decision-makers, there are higher chances that the first person that will emerge in their mind is you. Their decisions and inclination will be based on the confidence you have created in them.

Yes, leadership presence is an essential career and life skill that all ambitious, goal-driven, and foresighted organizations seek in their leaders. If you desire to create a powerful impression with everyone you interact with, developing an effective leadership presence is the ultimate answer.

While leadership presence may seem to come naturally to charismatic leaders it is a skill that can be attained under the guidance of the right coaches. Learning this career and life skill through leadership presence coaching will help you bridge the gap between merit and success.

Developing Leadership Presence Through Presenting

For your ongoing success learn to develop skills that allow you to communicate, negotiate and lead. With leadership presence or also called “executive presence” increases your happiness leading to your growth and increase in value.

Yes, digital technology helps. To get that edge to speak and engage with people by presenting live in front of them. In turn allowing you to communicate, negotiate and lead with great success. There are many traits needed to be an effective leader and one that demonstrates actual executive presence shines out. It is not just about style and appearance.

No matter what you wish to achieve, acquiring executive presence is going to make the job easier! Each person’s executive presence varies. Through leadership (executive) presence equip yourself with tools and techniques that allow you to:

  • Establish rapport with individuals, teams, and audiences
  • Appeal, influence and persuade different types of people
  • Learn techniques to remove self-doubt, nervousness and fear

In addition, learn skills that allow you to:

  • Realise your strengths as a presenter
  • Get ready to handle tough questions with ease
  • Present with a BANG! BANG! BANG!

With great impact to inform, influence and inspire people. Enhance your image, convince, and be impressive by presenting with high personal connect. It’s never too late to work on developing and improving the key aspects of leadership (executive) presence.

Get Ready for IMPACT…”Speak Your Success through EXECUTIVE PRESENCE”

The key to successful leadership today is influence, not authority. —Kenneth Blanchard

WHY YOU NEED PRESENTATION SKILLS TO CLIMB THE SUCCESS LADDER


Being a good presenter is no longer good enough in this time and age. There was a time that either the most outspoken person, smartest person or a leader was the requirement to be a good present to whom people would listen to. Times have dramatically changed and transformed from that era.

When you are in the corporate world, you have to prepare for delivering a presentation at one or another point of time. Most people think that only people with extrovert personalities can have remarkable presentation skills. Fortunately, in today’s era, anybody can develop and improve presentation skills in the business communication part. Whether you belong to the sales and marketing department, management or leadership team, you require excellent skills to present and articulate your ideas precisely and effectively.

2-1

A working individual needs to deliver presentations in various scenarios right from product/service presentations to motivational speeches. Having the right skills is necessary, as they need the person to inform, influence and inspire the audience. Communicating, challenging a C-level audience, negotiating with seniors or highly experienced people requires you learn to develop your presentation skills. This could be for stakeholders in different scenarios:

Sales – delivery of a powerful pitch to a client or selling a concept
Technical – ensure teams, budget holders or clients on projects get updates with clarity
Business Case – influencing to get approvals for your ideas
High-stake – persuasion with ease when defending decisions made
Here are five easy ways in which presentation skills benefit you, help you go ahead in your life and earn recognition:

Boost Public Speaking Skill

Whether you need to speak during a roadshow or product release, business communication is a part that you cannot ignore. If you do, it costs you the success that you dream and desire your whole life. If you do really want to achieve higher goals, get ready and prepare by learning presentation skills in business communication. They help you hone your public speaking skills.

Create a Long-lasting Impression in Positive Way

All of us know how important it is to make a good impression right from the beginning. In fact, it can make a massive impact on the likeliness of success or failure of your career or business. Since presentations are often the first step through which investors and prospects get to know about you, your company, and its offerings, you need excellent presentation skills to impress your audience.

Display Your Confidence

Confidence is a quintessential characteristic that can open a world of opportunities and help in succeeding. No matter if you belong to a high profile company or a fresh startup company, people will only notify you when you have the confidence to explain things properly in a clear and interesting way. By boosting your presentation skills, you can stand in front of an audience of thousands of guests and sport a confident look while delivering a presentation.

 
Build Trust in You and Your Business

Investors, prospects, and clients will trust you when you demonstrate how confident you are in your products, services, ideas, and beliefs. If you don’t display any sign of excellence, confidence, and clarity in communication, no company would like to place trust in you. So, develop good presentation skills and show them that you are trustworthy, credible, and confident in what you are saying.

Prevent Misunderstanding

Poor communication and presentation skills let you down on various occasions just because you don’t know how to convey a message properly. Improving presentation skills help you communicate in a much clearer and precise way. Besides, you get to learn how to deliver well-presented and informative props to avoid potential misunderstandings. Knowing how to mold a situation in your favor also helps you get out of tricky situations.

Thus, the importance of presentation skills in business communication is huge and ignoring them is not an option in this era anymore.
