Words loaded with emotion
have a powerful effect."
My partner and I have been preparing six
training 'talks' or instructions for a presentation this week. We've written
them out and practiced them getting each others feedback and modifying the
outlines each time.
At one point I was a bit frustrated by the way we
were presenting the material and it had more of the outline in it and less of
us. So, I took it down to the most basic premise of why I was doing this to
begin with and why I chose to teach on this subject. I became animated, moving
my arms, talking more loudly, with a whole lot of passion of the subject and
the thing I would like to achieve by doing the talk, and all of a sudden, we
both lit up. That was what was missing. The passion that we both share for the
subject, along with the personal experiences were subdued and the focus was on
the outline of covering each point. It was a wonderful turning event in our
preparation for this meeting.
Now these presentations are going to be far better
than they would have been and it is all due to putting us in them. When you are
communicating something worthwhile, make sure and include YOU and your
Emotion Is A Wonderful Tool. . .
