The experts at SOAP Presentationsin São Paulo, Brazil, compiled the following presentation on the most important body language techniques to look like a natural in front of your boss, colleagues, and clients.

Ian Berry's insight:

All change champions use "speakership" to lead There's some good stuff in the SOAP slides and links to more. I recommend rehearsing/practicing in front of a mirror and learn to go with what's natural. I also recommend no slides until you mastered delivery and create slides that are a visual aid which is all slides will ever be. Personally I don't use slides at all for presentations under an hour I prefer to share stories and engage in conversation with the audience, skills any one can learn to master

5 Ways to Find Mentors and Make it Matter

5 Ways to Find Mentors and Make it Matter | Change Champions | Scoop.it
Mentoring is a tricky thing: most people want it, but don’t know how to get it. Mentoring is also loosely defined. Just because someone gives you advice, doesn’t mean they are your mentor. Mentoring is a responsibility; a commitment that requires valuable time and focused attention to assure the mentee’s goals are progressing forward. If you have one steady mentor that is adding value to your career and life, you’re fortunate. Although finding a mentor is difficult and making it work is even more challenging – the rewards are abundant.

Great advice. All true change champions have mentors. Who are your mentors?

Culture Of Courage: Creating A Culture That Breeds Bravery

Culture Of Courage: Creating A Culture That Breeds Bravery | Change Champions | Scoop.it
People are innately wired to avoid risk. During times of times of change and uncertainty, our risk aversion is amplified. Yet the number one way to gaining competitive edge is by creating a culture where people feel safe and emboldened to innovate and challenge the status quo thinking. The first key to creating a 'culture of courage' is leading from possibility, not probability.
