Jim’s Journal: Do You Stay the Course?

September 11, 2013 in Jim's Journal

Ever have a session start out slow?  Ever open to blank stares?  Ever have participants look as though they would rather stand in a long airport security line then stay in your session?  If so, what did you do?  I once wrote an article about how people perceive you entitled, “Everyone is Not Going to Clap.”  If you believe in your content and material, I suggest that you stay the course.  Believe it or not, I sometimes present in front of audiences that wish my session would come to an abrupt, early end.  It’s usually because they want to stay in their comfort zone and I’m challenging them to run out.  Or they don’t perceive that I bring any value.  I don’t abandon my approach!  I don’t give them their way!  I have a proven formula for getting adults to become more vulnerable thereby increasing their personal power and I stick to the script.  I’m not going to let their opinion of me become my reality.  I have good stuff and so do you – so don’t abandon it!  Unless, of course, it’s not good stuff.
