Session Overview: You On Your Best Day

In a presentation that highlights active, hands-on participation, Michael Allosso compares the preparation, performance, and role of an actor with that of the corporate executive.Through their participation, leaders reach a more vital and dynamic awareness of the excellence needed not only for presentations but also in the communications in every moment of every day. Rather than offering a band-aid checklist for making an individual speech better, Allosso offers concrete suggestions and exercises designed to modify behavior and help the participant always be “you on your best day.”

Key issues include:

  • Authenticity and intentionality
  • How to heighten self-awareness
  • Appropriateness and method for demonstrating passion and energy
  • Generating enthusiasm, clarity, and persuasiveness while staying true to self
  • Charisma – can it be learned?
  • Team-leading and -building
  • The power of the spoken word and when not to speak
  • Tone of voice and body movement
  • Relaxation and concentration
  • Speed, agility, risk-taking, thinking “outside the box”

Participants will be on their feet speaking and doing various exercises including those done by actors re-structured to maximize relevance in the business world. All will receive immediate feedback so, by the end of the presentation, they will have a new set of tools to make each meeting, planned or spontaneous, with a group or one-on-one more successful. Culture-enhancing and team-building for heightened
productivity will be emphasized.
