Presenting? Why Not Polish Your Presentation with New Techniques

By

audience sleepingIf you’re presenting in front of 2 or hundreds, you must wonder at times whether your delivery is interesting. Too often, we drone through the subject, stop to tell a joke or two, and just trudge through the trenches of information until the clock tells us to stop!

Are your students nodding off as the day goes on? Do you frantically wonder how to keep their attention—all day? The answer is not what you think it is. Recently, I taught my Instructor Development course to real estate professionals and affiliates. I’ve taught this course for about fifteen years. Here’s the biggest misconception students come in with:

If I just learn how to be a more captivating speaker, I can keep the students’ attention for hours on end.

NOT! In today’s frantic world, the person in front of everyone cannot hope to hold students’ attention for more than 10 minutes at a time! If you think I’m wrong, just count the number of commercials in a TV break. These commercials are down to about 15 seconds apiece. The images go by so fast you can scarcely count them. In fact, we’ve become a society of easily distracted, multi-tasking, not very focused beings (watch pedestrians—or drivers—in action with a cell phone…..).

The Focus Doesn’t Have to Be On You at All Times

So, what are you going to do to ‘hold’ students’ attention? You are going to implement some teaching methods called

alternative delivery methods

Alternative delivery methods: all those methods used to teach that are NOT lecture. Examples: Town hall, task force, case study, role play, action plan.

Don’t know how to use these? Here are two resources

slide one1. My new video series) Check out my complimentary 5-part video series (short videos) on how to use these methods (and how to put together a great workshop). See them all on my UTube channel

Give your Students some Credit

People who lecture their way through a day (or days!) either

Just don’t have any repertoire of alternative teaching methods

or

Just don’t think the students can be involved with theirs and others’ learning

How to Teach through Student Involvement–the Second Resource

Instead of talking through each point you have on your PowerPoint slide or in our outline (boy, is that riveting!), use town hall, task force, case study, and role play to teach. If you’re not comfortable switching out of ‘lecture’ style, take an Instructor Development Workshop* or see my resource, The Ultimate Real Estate Trainer’s Guide to learn those methods, and practice using them in class.

You’ll find your students know much more than you think they do about what you’re teaching. You’ll be able to clarify points of concern, use the talents in your class, and actually provide a stimulating, active learning environment. The result: your students will be energized all day (and you will be, too!).
