Now here's a quick and handy resource for you -- 8 ways to grab your audience's attention when starting a presentation.


The beginnings of stories and presentations are not easy. You want to engage folks right away. Beginnings and endings are the places most folks get stuck with their storytelling. The ones presented here will definitely help you.


Now I will say, in conversational business storytelling where folks are swapping stories, simple beginnings are best: "It was 2003...." or "When I was working at..." or "One time when I was a project manager...." These 3 openings are based in time, in a location, or task. Choose one -- it's all you need to get started.


But for presentations we've got to get our game on. That means openings that grab attention.


Read this post and write down these ways to hook your audience -- because they work.

Another useful set of 8 ways to grab your audience's attention at the beginning of a presentation. Again, story is the important thing. Thanks to Gavin McMahon for this.

Linking practical experience to theoretical concepts helps the audience remember because they get a 'visual' not just 'words'.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, January 22, 8:52 AM

Contemporary neuroscience has now affirmed Freud’s inferential assumptions - that we are all quite ignorant of ourselves and of the mechanisms that determine a large part of how we feel and act.


In the corporate world, the fact that much of our mental activity is done on an automated mode explains the dichotomy between what executives say they do, and what they actually do. Why the significant gap between good intentions and actual behaviour exists, and why so many executives are completely unaware, of it is troublesome.

This is a very quick article that connects directly with another post I curated today on Similar Stories and their use in sales.


This article by Tori Reid talks about how to talk about mistakes by sharing a Similar Story. The application in this case is to help someone change their behavior. Of course, it could apply to sales situations also. In the field of Folklore we would call these 'cautionary tales'.


Regardless, the point of this piece is how to offer criticism in indirect, yet powerful ways through storytelling. Reid shares 2 reasons why this works.


I wouldn't use this technique 100% of the time, but it is important to have in your storytelling tool box.

The best leaders are definitely story-tellers?

Matthew Farmer's curator insight, January 27, 1:53 AM

Powerful stories are told with conviction and the most powerful are often told on the basis of personal experience. 


Learning to articulate your powerful personal learning experiences as stories will not only help you to reflect on your learning and therefore make it more powerful, but also help you share your learning with others and influence them to take action.  Leadership indeed!

James Hutchison's curator insight, January 28, 11:01 AM

Of course you reach people by telling stories - it's how we make sense out of life - you can give the theory but you have to provide real world examples and that's why we have stories. Stories help us understand life. But if you tell a story to teach a moral I would suggest that unless you live by that story's moral lesson it doesn't matter how many stories you tell - nobody will believe you. Telling a good story is one thing but having integrity is another.

The Iceberg That Sinks Organizational Change

The Iceberg That Sinks Organizational Change | HR Learning & Development Toolkit. | Scoop.it

Some aspects of organizational culture are visible on the surface, like the tip of an iceberg, while others are implicit and submerged within the organization. Because these ingrained assumptions are tacit and below the surface, they are not easy to see or deal with, although they affect everything the organization does.

Jeremy Pollard's curator insight, January 29, 5:56 PM

Icebergs are a great metaphor. We use an iceberg in Shipley win-work sessions to highlight that deals are often won under the iceberg around unstated issues, then justified on the stated requirements. 

 

Later, when client agree they could make some powerful changes to their process for winning work, this iceberg about the hidden barriers to making that change comes into play.

 

The ratio of people and organisations that want to changes, but struggle to make it stick, is very high. We are fast approaching the point where effective change management becomes a bigger issue to work on with clients than the specifics of the solution being considered.

 

I recommend this article, and the powerful visual as a starting point for you own conversations with your team about making things happen.

 

I suggest starting with examples of projects or changes of significance that HAVE worked for you. Talk through why you think they worked.  Compare them to the projects or changes that stalled or ran late. What was different?

 

Talk to colleagues about their success and failures in change.

 

Leading a team, helping a customer - change is the foundation skill.

Where would you rank your ability to drive, lead and make change happen?
