    Leadership%20 talk%20 1[1] Leadership%20 talk%20 1[1] Presentation Transcript

    • “Distinguishing a Presentation from a Leadership Talk”
      Leadership Talk No. 1
    • “The role of a leader is to mobilize people to tackle tough problems.” (Heifetz)
    • Presentation vs. Leadership Talk
      Presentation—intended to communicate information (facts, data, conditions, etc.)
      Leadership Talk—intended to persuade people to believe in you, to follow you, and to take action for your cause; people will sign up to follow you only when they believe that you believe deeply in your own cause
    • Three Basic Triggers of a Leadership Talk
      Do you know the emotional needs of your audience?
      (provide solutions to emotional needs)
      Can you bring deep belief to what you are saying?
      (sincere, convincing)
      Can you get your audience to take action for your cause? (inspire, motivate)
    • Assignment“You never get a second chance to make a first impression.”
      You are the new superintendent of the school district. The district employees have gathered in the high school auditorium for the traditional All Employee Back-to-School Meeting and Barbeque to kick off the new school year. You are going to address your employees for the first time.
      Prepare a 3-4 minute Leadership Talk to share with the employees (your cohort colleagues at the September seminar) about your beliefs and core values and the actions you hope they will take up during the new year to support your leadership.
