Mishandling Upset and Losing the Room

Learning to handle upset is something we work on heavily in my facilitator programs. Why? Because it is the fear of possible upset that scares many would-be presenters. The inability to gain confidence in this area, will water your presentations into boring, unengaging sessions and ultimately will block whatever great material and change you have to offer. Many need help with this so let’s take a look at it.

How do you steer away from potential upset in the audience? The reason it is intimidating is because you’re in front of a lot of people whether it be in person or on zoom. Offline or online doesn’t make much of a difference. Someone can challenge or disagree with you either way. That alone strikes fear in so many while presenting.

Without understanding the basics of how to do this, you will be put into the category of those who do not know how to present. Making them terrible presenters because they cannot engage with their audience. If you do understand, you’ll generate more in sales and inspire a lot of change in people. So what do you want, A or B? If you’re still here then you’re wanting to change people’s lives and wanting to become better yourself in the process. 

Question: What do you do when someone challenges you or disagrees with you? 

Answer: Well first thing, the Little Voice within you may have a mini freak out moment. This could cause several things to happen. Your emotions may go up while your intelligence goes down. Your ego may want to defend itself. You might want to attack. You may want to run and hide. Or you may just want to ignore it. For the record… none of those are good options! 

What is a good option? On my YouTube video, we will dive deep into how to actually do this. Watching the rest of this episode on youtube learn everything you can on this subject. It will change you as a presenter and leader. Don’t forget to Be Awesome!  Click the link below to watch the episode in full.
