Your Idea is Worthless… Unless you can Powerfully Present it!

When: 09 Apr 2014 | 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
Location: ASPE Training 114 Edinburgh South Dr, Suite 200 Cary, NC 27511

Registration: Free with $20 donation to LLS. Register and pay upon arrival at the event

Seminar Overview:

A great idea is meaningless and useless unless it can be communicated properly whether written or orally.  The problem with writing down great ideas is you have to trust someone will actually read what you wrote.  In today’s business environment that is something I would not necessarily trust.  Your only true and quick way you can get your idea out is through presenting it.

What does that mean though?  Is a presentation something speakers do at events?  The reality is you present every time you have an oral communication with someone.  A presentation can be one to one, one to two or one to hundred.  It can also be a group discussion with each person on a team or panel contributing. When you present you are your words.   Your audience creates an instant image of you as you begin and then that image ebbs and flows during your presentation.  When not managed correctly that image can overshadow or even block the message you are trying to convey.

In this seminar we will review very pragmatic skills, tools, and techniques to properly prepare and execute a successful presentation.  We will look at prep planning, preparation, delivery techniques, and delivery challenges – how you can increase the power of your message and the success of your idea.

Responding to Rapid Change and Disruption: The Critical Human Capital Evolution you must Embrace and Engender

When: 30 Apr 2014 | 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
Location: ASPE Training 114 Edinburgh South Dr, Suite 200 Cary, NC 27511

Registration: Free with $20 donation to LLS. Register and pay upon arrival at the event

Seminar Overview:

Organizations are filled with technical expertise that has been directed to do work. This was in response to the requirements of the information age. The problem is most of these deeply technical and “stove-piped” experts have a fatal flaw, a complete lack of professional/people/business skills.

These are required skills necessary to proper team function. We are talking about communication, presentation, negotiation, and problem solving skills to name a few. The ability to deal with stress and emotions brought on by information exchange between competing ideas which when done right ultimately leads to the fusion of those ideas into something NEW!

In this seminar we will quickly and efficiently look at the dynamics which caused and shaped this critical need. From there we will frame up the concept of the “T” shape worker. We will look at the top of the “T” professional/human/people/business skills needed to give a worker strong top of the “T” skills.

From there we will dig into the bottom of the “T” and look at the pressing need for STEM knowledge through an organization. Finally we will discuss the concepts of self-organization / self-direction and show what the expectations are for team members as well as the requirements for leaders in this model.
