Presentation Skills Coaching
Does the thought of delivering a presentation give you the jitters?
Whether you want to overcome your fear of public speaking or fine-tune your skills, Presentation Skills Coaching will enhance your ability to speak more effectively — with confidence and impact.
Presentation Skills Coaching is an individualized program designed to improve the delivery of presentations by increasing knowledge and skills of effective presentations, evaluating individual strengths and development areas, and creating a structured plan for improvement. It involves video-recording, critique and practice. Participants work with both original and prepared presentations to fine tune the “4 C’s” of an effective presenter: command of material, conviction about message, compatibility with audience, and communication skills. Through coaching, individuals become more self-assured and more effective speakers.
Although many people have taken a public speaking class, most have not had the opportunity to watch themselves deliver a presentation. The recording sessions are a vital factor in the coaching. You can’t improve your skills until you pinpoint your weaknesses, and the video-recording provides the opportunity to do that.
The ability to speak confidently and persuasively in public is a benefit to anyone who wants to take an active role in the workplace or in the community. Whether it is speaking in a staff meeting or making a presentation before a board, good presentation skills are linked to personal and career advancement. In essence, if you get so nervous that you are unable to deliver an important message to your colleagues or present the benefits of your product to potential clients, you will not be chosen to represent them. No matter how brilliant you are; if you can’t communicate your ideas, no one will ever be able to assess your expertise or what you can contribute. Poor presentation skills are a liability.
