We often get asked how to get meetings back on track.

This is a nice technique that, if set-up well at the start, could keep your meetings efficient. #meetings

“Quiet Revolution. Is it better to be an introvert?” is a piece from last Sunday’s Telegraph, exploring what it means to be an introvert in a world often designed around extroverts.

It’s centred on author Susan Cain, who spent 7 years in happy solitude writing her first book on the subject, then a whole year on the speaker circuit talking about it (the irony isn’t lost on her). It was a runaway success - her TED talk has been viewed 14m times. This week, she’s releasing a follow-up book focused on helping children and young people.

We particularly liked the article’s Top Five Confidence Boosters, including (self-confessed introvert) Marissa Meyer's tip on how to get over a hardwired dislike of parties.

Another tip, ‘Fake it ‘til you make it’, is a cliché, but we’ve seen hundreds of attendees on our Presentation Skills and Personal Impact training courses who know it to be true. They finish a talk or a presentation amazed at how much more comfortable they felt, simply because they turned up the volume, or occupied more of their ‘stage’.

If you’re interested in a one-on-one or team MBTI session to help you identify whether your natural preference is for introversion or extroversion, get in touch. And we’re always here should you want help boosting your confidence when you’re in meetings or presenting.

A great article to help you nip disagreements in the bud.

"The minute you accept that the conflict is productive and that the person you’re in conflict with is worthy, the nature of the conflict will immediately change for the better."

Chip & Dan Heath have a simple tip for when you're finding it tough to make a decision. Ask yourself: "What would you advise your best friend to do?"

Hear the great Daniel Pink talk about it here.

We agree 100% with this great article on the power painting a mental picture in the minds of your audience.

"According to Buffett, learning to be a better public speaker “certainly had the biggest impact on my subsequent success.”

Some good perspectives in this piece on the immense value of working on your presentation delivery.

A very practical and effective approach to giving 'constructive' feedback.

Great tips for Instagram composition, equally great for presentation slide design.

Have a think about how you could use these tips to give your slide layouts a professional look.
