You will get individualized feedback on your performance during a class-presentation, including body language, tone, eye contact, verbal habits, and overall rapport and connectedness with the audience. You will receive precise, timely, individualized feedback guided by a framework that challenges you to consider the impact that everything you say and do in public has on the effectiveness and efficacy of your communication, and the persuasiveness of your presentation. You will leave the session in possession of a communication compass - a set of structured questions that will help you model and understand your intent and purpose in making a presentation, and the degree to which the presentation itself achieves your purpose.
• Material: a video of your team presentation
• Duration: 1H


Advanced Presentations

Designed for students who have successfully completed Presentations, this module gives individualized, intensive feedback on the way in which you present, connect, relate to their audience and content and engage in the complicated landscape of public dialogue. The feedback is based on the video of the presentation made AFTER the Presentations module - and will therefore provide with guidance and feedback on the degree to which the changes made as a result of the first round of feedback are producing the results sought.
• Material: a video of your team presentation
• Duration: 1H



Presence is the great X-factor of managerial communication: Are you really there? What does your body say about the message you produce? Are you eliciting real, authentic presence from the others? You will receive individualized feedback regarding the non-verbal cues you exhibit, in either a class presentation or an interview. This module encourages you to witness and compare your own perceptions regarding your presence with the perceptions of those with whom you interact. You will be provided with a framework for understanding the underpinnings of trustworthiness, rapport, and conveying competence in dyadic and group situations.
• Material: 15 minute video of an interview
• Duration: 1H
