Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, October 3, 2013 9:22 PM

Here are the community building tips I shared with my friend Nikol Murphy today:

* NAME the team (creates a sense of connectedness).
* Create public profiles so teammates can know each other.
* Arm the team (with a clear mission and tools).
* Reward the team (with social THANKS and a little competition).
* Learn from the team (LISTEN very carefully and creation of brand advocate teams is the fastest way to improve branding, marketing (Internet or not) and other important Critical Success Factors).

Wondering what this has to do with Robert Redford's 3 Days of the Condor? Will need to read the post for that nugget :). M

How to Give an Emotionally Intelligent Presentation

How to Give an Emotionally Intelligent Presentation | The power of Play | Scoop.it

Emotions play an active role in almost all of our decision making. That's one reason why emotional intelligence, the ability to identify, understand, and manage those emotions, is such an invaluable skill. 

 

But how specifically does emotional intelligence help us with our daily tasks? Here are three tips to make sure your next presentation is emotionally intelligent:

 

1. Don't get anxious. Get excited.

All of us get nervous before a presentation, even if we've done it hundreds of times. So take that nervousness and turn it into something positive: enthusiasm.How do you do that exactly?

Spend those final few moments reviewing your favorite parts of the presentation. Remind yourself why you're doing this, and focus on the value you have to deliver to your listeners.

Now, take that enthusiasm and give a talk that you passionately believe in.
