The young composer took the famous composer’s advice and went to the well respected composer. She told him what the famous composer had said and then played him some of her music and showed him some of her scores.
- What strengths have you exhibited and how do you know they are strengths? What evidence do you have to confirm they are strengths?
- What feedback have you gained from others about your strengths?
- Have you tested your existing strengths? Have you knowingly used them and gained good results and feedback?
- Have you recorded when you used your strengths and the results you achieved?
Once you have identified feedback about the strengths of your presentational approach you are then in a position to test them. You can make a point of using and exploiting them during your next few presentations. If you have been told you have an open and engaging style that encourages participation, you can make sure that you continue to use it. You can also make a note of when you used it and the results it achieved for you.
- What specific aspects of your strengths do you want to concentrate upon so that you can make even better use of them?
- How can you make sure that you give your strengths the space and time they need to develop and be even more effective?
- What opportunities are you going to give yourself to expand and exploit your strengths and value and enjoy them?
- How will you know that you have succeeded in enhancing your existing strengths?
Lastly, you can check that you have succeeded in enhancing and exploiting your strengths. You can analyse any feedback obtained about your performance to find out if your use of your strengths is having an even greater positive effect upon the quality of your presentations. You can also gain face to face feedback from audience members, co-presenters, colleagues and managers to find out if they have noticed any improvements.
