Three reasons you are still stuck
Do some of you feel that you trying to be a better presenter, instructor, salesperson, etc. but you're still stuck on a treadmill with no feeling of improvement? Maybe you read the latest TED talk book or attended an expensive webinar given by THE expert in public speaking, but in the end, you still cannot improve. The problem, my friend, is not you. It is the fact that fallen for the myth that "Knowledge is power." This causes three major problems.
Knowing = Getting Better
Unlike the Matrix, you can't download presentation skills into the brain with book or webinar. You may feel that your learned something, but later own you can't do it when it is showtime. You need a place to practice effectively so what you learned is second nature.
Learning alone is quicker
When we learn in book, online etc. We learn at our own pace. This can be great, but being alone means there is no one to give feedback. There is no way to practice in front of an audience. There also is not one to help pick you up.
That way is the RIGHT way
Every book, seminar, etc. profess to give the "magic" formula to presentation success. However, the devil is in the details. It is important to practice to figure how to implement it with your special circumstances.
1% Better Every Day = 365%
"Comujo" is an online community that where you get skill not just knowledge. Everyone here is dedicate to improving a little bit a every day, because if you work on getting 1% better each day, after a year you are easily 365% better!
"Comujo" works by having regular online practice session with feedback give by all participants. The focus is doing, improving and doing again. Since you are not alone it is easier to maintain motivation, plus you can feel safe to share any problem you have because everyone has probably had the same doubts, fears, and problem.
By joining your will be able to convey your thoughts and ideas will even more effectively to your colleagues, bosses, and customers.
So, why not take the leap what do you have to loose?
What can you get from the "Comujo" online community?
Presentation sessions that
improve your speaking and evaluation skills
There is an environment where you can practice presentations with me and members and we all give constructive feedback to everyone.
This allows you to practice "speaking" and "evaluating" as a set. By giving feedback, we will also train the each one's ability to make suggestions. As well as improving your speaking style, you can train yourself to find out what you need to improve by analyzing other speeches yourself.
Improve logical thinking with
Many people think that debate is about defeating the other side, but debate was originally a training ground to understand the positions of affirmation and negative to better to convey any assertion logically in an easy-to-understand manner to any side.
People who practice only presentation skill will be better at some areas of communicating, but it is also important to consider the questions and counterarguments possible coming from the audience and also to be able to respond well on the spot. Participating in a debate practice session will help you be more persuasive and powerful.
Improve facilitation skills to reduces time wasting meeetings
It is said that about 20% of the time of work life is held in meetings. And most of them are time wasters that can long and inconclusive.
Unfortunately, good presentation and debate skill alone cannot solve that. It is better to practice simple tips that can be introduced by anyone in any position or even a traditional Japanese company.
Sales & negotiation practice session to increase
your success rate
When asked what is the most directly useful skill in your working life, it will probably be sales negotiation ability. Sales skills and negotiation is all about having effective dialogue with people. This online community is a place where you can learn and practice various patterns with various people, and improve your script or dialogue ability in a safe way.
Coaching practice session to motivate colleagues
Most workplaces have problems with motivation, relationships, and so on. Coaching is an effective communication method.
However, there are very few places to actually learn and practice coaching, and it is very difficult to acquire good coaching. In this community, you will be able to practice as a coaching position and organize your own tasks. Wearing coaching will increase the number of people around you who feel you can count on.
An environment where you can practice at any time to accelerate your learning
At least once a month, there is a practice session hosted by me. However, it is possible to hold many more depending on your preferred time and day.
All you need is one other person and you can hold as many additional practice sessions as you like.So even busy people can rest assured.
You can even freely decide on the length number of the practices , etc. Just make sure you stick to have a supportive and constructive feedback environment.
