Using Gestures in Presentations

Some say that a "gesture" is movement of the hand and arm. But at our presentation training Atlanta,  presentation training Boston, and presentation training New York City, we show you why it is so much more than that.

 

A gesture has meaning. And during our presentation training Atlanta,  presentation training Boston, and presentation training New York City, we teach you how to couple a gesture with your oral delivery for a powerful combination.

 

Audience members rely heavily upon what they see for full receptivity of information. When you participate in one of our presentation training Atlanta,  presentation training Boston, and presentation training New York City, you learn the science behind the methods.

 

Most presenters just get up there and talk away. When you use purposeful gestures, our presentation training Atlanta,  presentation training Boston, and presentation training New York City show you that you will be a fresh new experience for your seasoned audiences.

The Importance of Projection

You’re known to be rather quiet with a soft voice. But that has some downsides as a presenter. At our presentation training Seattle, presentation class New York City, and presentation training Philadelphia, we coach you on the fundamental need for audiences to hear you easily, without straining.

 

Hearing easily is just the first part of projecting. For your audience to believe in you and your message, your conviction in the material has to be carried strongly through your projection. At presentation training Seattle, presentation class New York City, and presentation training Philadelphia, you exercise your projection in new and effective ways.

 

But projecting at only one decibel level is boring.  At our presentation training Seattle, presentation class New York City, and presentation training Philadelphia, we show you how to vary your projection for more interesting presentations.

 

Breathing diaphragmatically, you can project more strongly without hurting yourself. At our presentation training Seattle, presentation class New York City, and presentation training Philadelphia, you learn how to get in touch with the best mechanics of speaking with strength.

Self-Awareness Bank of Monitors

We have 70,000 thoughts a day zipping through our heads. We have corresponding zaps of emotion flooding our body; and physical sensations constantly come and go. So what? In our management training Seattle, management training San Francisco, and management training programs San Francisco we discuss how these thoughts, feelings and body sensations guide our actions, and our actions (and inactions) produce the results in our life. Again, so what?

 

Take a look around your life. Are there any results currently there that could be better? Of course there are. What couldn’t be improved. In our management training Seattle, management training San Francisco, and management training programs San Francisco, we discuss that to begin to make changes, you need to stop having the old thoughts, feelings, actions… that produced your current results, and start thinking, feeling and acting in new ways for new results.

 

In our management training Seattle, management training San Francisco, and management training programs San Francisco we uncover that good news is that your brain has built-in abilities to be self-aware; to observe your own thoughts etc…; our prefrontal lobes of self-awareness. Try this simple exercise. Close your eyes and count silently to yourself from 1 to 5. While the counter was counting, your frontal lobes were able to observe this counting. 

 

Knowing that the prefrontal lobes of self-awareness come with your package is only the beginning. If you are like most of us, you have probably not been taught how to use this equipment to your best advantage. In our management training Seattle, management training San Francisco, and management training programs San Francisco   We cover an image that might help you. In movies, TV shows, or perhaps in real life, you’ve probably seen a Security Guard sitting in front of a bank of monitors. They can observe the front gate, multiple corridors, important rooms etc. So imagine yourself as that sitting person, using your prefrontal lobes as monitors of your inner world: thoughts, images, intuitions, inclinations, positive voices, negative voices… When you realize that you do indeed have such a monitor room and that your higher self can sit in the seat and watch the stream of information whenever you choose, well that will change your life. You choose which screens to allow. You turn off any monitor that does not serve your positive visions of who you want to be and what you want to do. This is truly transformational.

 

So practice sitting in the seat. Notice at first that your mind might be entirely drawn in to a particular monitors’ actions before you remember that you are in charge of where you place your focus. Work at this with patience and you will attain degrees of managing and choosing your life course in ways that you simply never knew existed. Enjoy the journey of expansion and watch the new results unfold.

Counter-Productive Delivery

As a manager, part of your job is to deal with people who have the skill to get the job done but aren’t applying those skills well enough; not getting good enough results. In our management seminars nyc, management training Boston, and management courses in nyc, we pay special attention to the many ingredients it takes to inspire team members to change their behaviors; to up their game.

 

You may be one of the many who struggle with being effective at inspiring your staff member to take greater ownership of their actions and strive for improved performance from them.

 

This piece deals with the important issue of counter productive messaging. What does this mean? Let’s use the kind of example we discuss during the management seminars nyc, management training Boston, and management courses in nyc of a subordinate consistently surfing the web with personal interest during paid-to-work time (though any example will do).  You’ve had an informal conference with them but they are repeating the same unwanted behavior. You are now meeting again with a Verbal Warning to document. 

 

In the first conference, you may have taken a highly supportive approach. After all, it was the first incident. But their repeated behavior now has you past disappointed and a bit ticked off. In Bold New Directions’  management seminars nyc, management training Boston, and management courses in nyc, we acknowledge that when you meet this second time, your voice can absolutely have a hard edge to it and your face is stern.

 

What we also cover in our management seminars nyc, management training Boston, and management courses in nyc is how to use situational leadership,  in part based on varying behavior styles. If you are corrective coaching a "Doer", your harder voice and facial expression is no problem. They are very strong minded and almost nothing feels conflictual. But if our example of a Verbal Warning conference is with the Doer’s opposite, the "Guardian", their mental emotional make-up is quite different. These people avoid conflict like the plague. Your voice and face in fact have them feel threatened.

 

Now at the management seminars nyc, management training Boston, and management courses in nyc, we talk about how it seems natural to come down harder in round two of the same transgression. But the problem is this. Neuroscience tells us that the middle brain’s limbic system goes into fight/flight or freeze mode when it feels threatened. And the counter productive piece is that the person feeling attacked literally cannot hear what you are saying. They physically have audio inability to take your message in never digest, consider and rethink their actions. You, the manager may not want to hear this. But this brain science is proven. If you will understand and use this information, you can tailor your approach based on personality. One size does not fit all when it comes to managing people whether in a corrective coaching session or other situations.

 

The message in our management seminars nyc, management training Boston, management courses in nyc is always the same. First, focus on the results you want from someone you supervise. Then, use your wisdom to decide situationally, each and every person, each and every time, what messaging delivery approach to take. What will work best to produce the results you want. That is ultimately why you are paid to be a manager; to get the best work done through your people.
