So here's a mind-blowingly simple technique to get your ex back: make it look as if you don't care anymore! You see, if you appear too desperate to get your ex back, you put them in the power position. You put them on a pedestal so high and mighty that no one else can touch it. This gives them a tremendous amount of power over you. It gives them a tremendous feeling of overblown self importance. Dale Carnegie once wrote that the most fundamental desire of humans is the desire to feel imported. It is what separates us from the animals. But by making another person feel too important, you can turn them into a tyrant. You feed their ego so much that it becomes overblown. It swells up like a giant hot air balloon!
Tables : When your data doesn't clearly show a trend, use a table. You may have this data in Excel, and can even link to the Excel file. Quotations : Quotes are very powerful when they come from authorities or well-known individuals. In a persuasive presentation, you can use testimonials from other customers, for example. Stories : Stories are powerful when they support your message. They can be personal, related to current events, examples from other customers, and so on. They can be full-blown situations, or simple examples. Collect stories as you hear them and keep them in a file for use later.
In the last years some organizations have emerged with the aim of creating professional communities around specific disciplines such as Software Development (SEI, ESI, etc...), Project Management (PMI), Business Process Management (BPMI), IT Service Management (ITSMF), etc... One of the objectives of these groups is to develop a body of knowledge that compiles the discipline's best practices in the form of reference frameworks, methodologies and maturity models. These assets should be considered by any organization interested in knowledge process management.
In the Tell 'n' Show method of creating effective presentations, you tell you point, then you show it. So, each point requires some validation, some evidence. Which validation you choose may depend on your audience. Some people want hard data, others want to know what the competition is doing, and still others may want the advice of an expert. A story that conveys a poignant situation may be effective. Sometimes, all you need is an image to show what you're telling. If you say that the copier you sell fits on a small table, a photograph will suffice.
