In my first year of law school, one of my professors scheduled a class for students that had missed his lecture on the Jewish holidays. When I was the only person to show up, I had a sense that this would be interesting.
I was right. It was the strangest law lecture of my life and stands as a lesson in how not to be audience-centered. Being audience-centered means believing that the whole reason that we give presentations is to connect with the audience, answer their questions, and help them, even if that means changing your initial game plan to meet the circumstances.
But this professor didn’t get that idea. As a result, his rigid approach bewildered his audience.
Lecturing to an Audience of One
To be fair, this man was a great professor, one of my favorites. But this “make-up lecture” to a single student seemed to take him out of his game.
The best leaders build credibility with stories.
In particular, they share examples of the times in their lives when their character and skills were formed through personal experience. These narratives illustrate to the listener what they can expect of a leader as well as what a leader will most likely expect of them. People remember stories long after they forget the policy book and the vision statement on the wall.
There are five stories you should be able to deliver that will build your credibility as a leader. Learn how in Jan McKenzie's White Paper "The Five Stories Credible Leaders Tell."
