Present to Gain Input
One of the most valuable types of business presentations is the one that is designed to gain input. Rather than a typical sharing of information, this presentation calls for the exchange of ideas between the presenter and the listener. While the presenter still controls the direction of the presentation, she requires a willingness to allow an even flow of information, rather than dominating the conversation with her own opinions.
This course examines the role of the facilitator in drawing out ideas and opinions. You analyse a model that allows you to remain in control and move the discussion in a relevant and valuable direction. You review how careful planning and preparation are essential to making this type of presentation effective. You also learn that the varied personalities of your needs should be carefully considered so you can earn their respect and cooperation, and accomplish your goal of tapping into their fresh thinking.
