No matter how good your ideas are, if you don’t present them in a way that can be discussed and understood by the people who can make them happen, they won’t be implemented. You’ll be left frustrated. And your community will never experience that terrific new service.
This webinar will describe techniques that prepare library staff members at any level to present new ideas effectively. Participants will learn how to: Demonstrate how your idea fits in with other organizational goals and practices; Improve your empathetic skills, “think with someone else’s brain,” and anticipate how ideas will be received; Identify the people who can assist you in carrying your ideas to reality; Face resistance squarely and overcome objections; Improve presentation skills so that a good idea won’t be lost in a substandard delivery.
