“The secret to being effective when you present to is stay present.” — Bob Burg
Melissa’s Words of Wisdom
Being present is so powerful! It allows you to absorb and process information that you otherwise would overlook and miss out on. Too often professionals get caught up in memorizing a script, elevator pitch, and presentation and they forget to be fully present for their audience because they’re just reading off something memorized in their minds. Don’t get me wrong… a script, an elevator pitch, and a presentation should be practiced and memorized, however never leave out the REAL YOU from those communications! The part of you that is truly curious about the other person, that wants to connect and be of great service and value to them, and the part of you that stays connected and grounded to the REAL AUTHENTIC YOU! When you are present you share your greatest gift… and that’s YOU! Happy Being a Present Communicator! Remember, nothing happens until you decide to take action!
