You’re getting ready to lead or facilitate a session and you want have an engaged group. 🙋🏻♀️🙋🏽♂️🙋🏼♀️🙋🏾♂️
Here are my 6 tips on keeping your audience involved.
When possible, say the person’s name. (We all want to feel recognised and special🤩, and it starts when someone remembers your name😍)
Every few minutes, get people talking or 🗣saying something. (The brain and muscles are activated)
ASK a question first before TELLING. (You want to give the answer…don’t! Give your audience a chance to be involved, if they dont know, then give it)
Say: ☞ “THIS IS IMPORTANT”☜ (When needed, instantly gets focus)
Make links, bring back previous examples (Think of the session as telling a story, everything connects- “Remember when we spoke about…”💭)
And finally, PAUSE ! (Mixes up the pace, and lets introverts catch up)
