How do you end your presentations?
Do you typically smile with a sense of relief and ask, ‘Any questions?’
For more compelling response, stand tall and ask, ‘What questions do you have for me?’
Asking if there are any questions assumes there might not be. Asking what questions assumes there are.
Move from a sense of obligation to a spirit of adventure. Move from a place of weakness to strength and confidence.
Give people a little more freedom to engage.
