Wakeup Call – Presentation Skills Take You To The Top
Are you satisfied with your business presentation skills? The majority of professionals I talk to are not satisfied with their skills or with their corporate training department. They feel the courses are boring, rote and do not adequately prepare them give persuasive presentations.
The smart alternative? Take your career into your own hands. Develop your presentation skills through online training.
Instead of waiting for a training to come to you, you can start taking a class right now. And rather than suffer through a boring class, choose an online class that is upbeat and different. Pick one that is fast, fun and very interactive with videos, blueprints and fun practice activites.
Even knowing that this is possible should lift your spirits. But perhaps you're still holding out and feeling frustrated with your options.
A few myths may be standing in the way of taking action. These 5-assumptions could be all that is standing in the way. Conquer these and you can get the professional skills development you deserve.
Let's look at the 5-assumptions in one list:
1: Your Organization Will Provide Training
2: Presentation Training Is Expensive
3: Presentation Training Is Time-Consuming
4: Presentation Training Is Only For Executives
5: Presentation Training Is Best Done In Person
Quick note. I have to warn you in advance. Each assumption is false.
Let's expose the truth, one by one.
Corporate Will Do It
If you are waiting for your organization, you are putting your career at serious risk. Your organization may have 'other priorities' than developing staff.
Your organization may have plenty of dates on the calendar. But executives get first dibs. Why wait for something you can't have?
Costs Too Much
Presentation training is usually expensive. But it doesn't have to be. If you get online tips for presentations, you can save thousands of dollars in travel, course fees, hotel fees, and time out of the office.
Takes Too Long
You are correct in assuming that training takes time. Many training providers do the math and decide that a 2-3 day training is going to yield a higher income. Who can blame them?
Well, instead of paying someone else's mortgage, you can opt for a low-cost alternative: online presentation skills learning. You can start instantly for a tiny fraction of an expensive in-house seminar.
Hey, why should executives and leaders get all the good training? If you want to become a leader in the future, start building your skills today.
Of course if you are a leader today, it's smart to brush up on your skills. Otherwise you could easily find that a new, younger group of professionals is nipping on your heels. And a younger, more diverse audience has different expectations about presenting. 'Death by PowerPoint' is no longer viable.
In-Person Is Best
The big myth. With Adobe Captivate e-learning and video technology, it is no longer necessary to rely on expensive in-person classes. In fact, you'd be foolish to choose events as the only solution. Why spend the money and get locked into a time commitment when an online class is less expensive and more convenient?
In the best of all worlds, do both. Get in-person training and you’re your skills with ongoing learning with online classes. This is a best choice.
Take your skill development into your own hands. Get the skills you need so you can achieve your career goals.
