Positive Messages – How to be more positive in your next presentation

TB+ positive and persuasive communication tips

If you want to be more positive in your next presentation, I encourage you to:

  1. Practise delivering your presentation out loud
  2. Record it (on video or audio) so you can review your presentation OR get a colleague to give you feedback
  3. Seek out negative language and replace it with more positive language

I often help executives prepare for important presentations and we go through this exact process.

When I hear negative expressions I will ask the executive questions to find the positive. We will often replace a negative word by finding its opposite.

For example:

In  practice session for an upcoming important presentation an executive said:

Unfortunately we failed to reach our target

Positive language – avoid the word Failure – it is not an option! Replace with positive language

 

I encourage presenters to see if they can avoid the words unfortunately and fail.
