Graeme Reid's curator insight, February 10, 2014 7:42 PM

Some good advice for making a presentation.  The best advice is keep it simple and remember that you are telling a story not downloading information.

Emeric Nectoux's curator insight, February 16, 2014 1:36 AM

Always good to remember...


Here is one of the four:


Keep it Simple 

Every speech should be distilled to the simplest points so your audience will be able to retain the information. "When you see someone with 100 different bullet points on the slide," that's boring, says Holman. "Follow the rule of threes ... a simple grouping of things is much more powerful."

How leaders win with people

How leaders win with people | Mindful Leadership & Intercultural Communication | Scoop.it

Leadership involves influencing people to cooperate through positive relationships to achieve a meaningful goal together. If you are going to leave a legacy or anything of significance, you need people. Lao Tzu said it best, “When the best leader’s work is done the people say, we did it ourselves!” 

 

Great leaders throughout history have always left a mark because of the relationship with the people they led. Winning with people is doing a lot of little things consistently. Leaders need to take more time to become better acquainted with others and their needs. Leaders take a moment and reflect upon the people they lead and serve.

Working together is more than always agreeing. Strong leadership holds a space for people to come to agreement over contentious issues. Collaboration is more than collegiality and blind agreement.
