Workshop Goals and Objectives
To help students feel more in-control when they present in front of others.
- Understand the basics of communication
- Understand audience, intent, message wrapped in a task
- Understand the big 3 of Presence
- Understand how to use ethos, logos and pathos to persuade
Almost every successful executive will be required to speak in front of a group of people from time to time. Management meetings, sales calls, conferences and client dinners are but a few of the times when we need to look and sound our best in front of important business people. This class is designed to help the student think about and understand how to control better their own presence. We will study the three main components of presence: use of the voice or verbal, use of the body or non-verbal and the narratives and jargon we use or content organization. The student will be required to speak in front of an audience of their peers and will receive feedback from the audience as well as the instructor. The student will also be required to analyze the other speakers and give feedback on them as well. The goal is to reduce the student's fear of public speaking and give them a new sense of ownership over their own presence and an increased ability to read the presence of others.
