Creativity: The Secret Behind the Secret | Steven Kotler | Communicate...and how! | Scoop.it

In 2010, IBM’s Institute for Business Value surveyed over 1,500 chief executives about the most important leadership competency for this new millennium. Creativity was the across-the-board’s winner.

Want to Make Your Presentation Memorable? Do These 5 Things

 

Want people who hear you speak to remember you long after your presentation is over? Follow my top five rules for success.

 

You're standing at a podium. In front of you is a crowd of friends, peers, and co-workers. Sitting. Staring at you.

 

Your presentation is about to begin.

 

Will your presentation wow the crowd?

 

Or will your presentation be background noise for attendees as they look at their smartphones and laptops?

Want people who hear you speak to remember you long after your presentation is over? Follow my top five rules for success.

Bovee & Thill's Online Business Communication Magazines's curator insight, February 20, 2017 4:47 PM

"I've done about 40 presentations at conferences around the globe. I've given presentations to crowds of 300 people and audiences of more than 2,500.

 

"When I started giving presentations, I was pretty terrible.

In fact, for a long time I fell victim to the worst speaking mistake possible: kicking off my presentation by introducing myself. Sorry, but nobody who pays to attend an event really wants to hear you talking about how awesome you are.

 

"Today I'm consistently rated among the top one or two speakers at the events where I'm invited to speak."

Every writer gets asked to work for free from time to time. Every writer should also know that every time a writer works for free, it makes it harder for every writer to make a living. Here is your reminder of the basic rules about writing for free.

A CV is a great way of explaining your expertise to a would-be client. Not all freelancers use a CV/resume to market their services or to convey their experience to their clients. Those who do use one will tell you that it’s a great way of explaining complex information to potential clients and partners without long speeches. A freelance CV is very different from one used to apply for a job, and it’s a good idea to learn how to approach CV development for freelance work even if you decide it’

Does the Language We Speak Affect Our Perception of Reality?

Ethnobotanist and hallucinogenic scion Terrence McKenna said in one of his lectures that, “Culture is your operating system.” Through hallucinogenic drugs, McKenna posited, one could shed that operating system for a time and gain union with nature, other humans, and even an ancient mode of thinking which could give us insight into modern life. He wanted to bring about an “Archaic Revival,” which would end estrangement from society and reconnect us with one another. That puts a lot of emphasis on the power of language and culture. To some experts, language is considered a technology, perhaps the most powerful one of all. Eminent explainer of Zen Alan Watts said that in our culture, we often mistake words for the phenomenon they represent. “The menu is not the meal,” he said. Another insight, “We seldom realize…that our most private thoughts and emotions are not actually our own. For we think in terms of languages and images which we did not invent, but which were given to us by our society.”
