Executive Presentation skills and public speaking are critical qualities needed in a high-level executive. Even the most well written presentation will fall flat if it is not presented in an engaging and entertaining manner.
Some executives do not realize that what they consider to be a brilliant pitch will not reach the ears of clients if they are unprepared or that employees will daydream throughout presentation on the all-important company's goals, if they do not keep eye contact with them.
No matter how interesting we find our own speeches, unless we are able to generate the same interest in our audience, our speech has failed. Hence the reason to send all "new" executives to an effective presentation skills training program.
The benefits are many:
1. Increased levels of Communication. Though many executives portray excellent communication qualities, training will increase levels of assertiveness and confidence. You will find that executives are more likely to tackled even the most challenging conflict situations.
2. Private coaching. Gail Kasper, a Life-Business Coach and Professional Speaker, provides one-on-one coaching in all of her public speaking training programs. As a group, you learn the techniques, as an individual, you practice them. This one-on-one coaching will provide you with the basic steps to develop your presentation skills so that you can take specific actions to become an outstanding speaker. Instant feedback will immediately increase your confidence as a speaker with respect to both skill sets and content ideas.
3. The Team Effect! Watching others in the team make their presentations ALWAYS opens the door to creativity and personal reflection as you are able to improve your content as well as delivery style. Workshops are also a brilliant way to enhance your company's messages as the senior management team works together on company-designed topics.
By improving executive presentation skills, you will enhance the effectiveness of your team, thereby increasing employee production and company effectiveness. It is a must in every organization.
