Presentation Tip: Game On

Everyone knows that feeling when you had a great meeting or presentation because you were “on.” We’re often asked, “How can I be 'on' every time?”

One of our favorite tools is Warm Up To Play. The concept is easy to execute. A professional athlete like Peyton Manning would never head out onto the field without an extensive warm up. Professionals need to warm up too. 

In a state of peak performance, your mind and body work as one. This is equally true for sports and business. Executives must get their mind and body “in the game.”

Want to step UP your game? 

Before an important meeting or presentation, warm up your body by doing something physical to get your blood flowing and oxygenate your brain. 

Most people utilize less than a third of their breath capacity. You need air to be at your best! So take a few moments to walk briskly around the block or stretch and breathe into whatever part of your body feels tight. 

Warm up your mind by actively thinking through the logical steps to reach your desired outcome. Visualize success. 

We recently trained a team that called this, “Game On.” Warming UP to Play had a huge impact on their ability to win new business. 

Give warming UP a try!
