How do you feel when your important presentation session didn't run smoothly as expected? What will you do? DoctorSlide gathered up some tips that you might want to implement when facing problems or failures, especially when running a presentation session.
1. Keep Calm and Do A Quick Introspection
We know that you might get panic and worry about the failed session. However, keep yourself calm. By being calm and cope with panic, you have time to think clearly. You can ask some introspection question to related coworkers that also on that presentation session. Remember, you should be able to focus on the getting lesson instead trapped into emotional circles. Take advise that you think will empower your next session.
2. Always See the Good Side
Don't think too much about negative sides, somethings things happened with a certainly good reason. And yes, those good things might be a good reflection for all of us. For example, even if your presentation fail to get a "yes" decision from the client because your offering price is too expensive, the valuable lesson is that you might be able to consider new package of pricing and renegotiate. You can also learn that perhaps the way of presenting should be by giving the value first then started with pricing later hence the client will have equal measurement to agree that the price is worthwhile. By looking from the good side, you can help all team members to grow and fix the failures, including yours.
3. Think Solutions for the Future
It's okay to be sad for a while, but we should try to get ourselves up! And yes, you should stand up no matter what had happened and think about what steps you can take to improve the situation to move forward. Ask for suggestions and opinions from those around you who you trust if you need to discuss any further direction. Gather up with your team member to find better solution in preventing the same failure and wrap up new strategy. Remember, you cannot succeed alone without the help of others since we are conducting presentation for big scale of audience. Manage your emotions and self-aware about the time is money, it's just now or never to pursue your goals!
