Prioritize Learning

One of the best parts about working at a company committed to solving healthcare’s toughest challenges is that we’re often tackling a problem that’s never been addressed before. Ever. Anywhere.

To keep our team nimble and ready for anything, we prioritize education and skill development:

Public Speaking

During a recent summit, we had a breakout session resulting from a team member’s personal development education related to public speaking. The team member spent her 2018 fund on improving her public speaking skills through a course at Second City improv in Chicago. Not shocking, but worth pointing out, public speaking is something applicable to all client-facing roles across industries and is something that everyone can learn to improve.

The next time you give a speech or presentation, think about these best practices:

At Prominence, we’re always working to improve our skills to do better work for you. Do you have a tough problem you need help solving? We’ve got the skills to help. Contact us here.

How To Practice

Leaning about public speaking is good, but practicing is better.  In order to continue to grow personally and professionally we need to practice what we are not good at.  Whether it’s public speaking, creative writing, or data visualization, think about what skills you want to improve and keep practicing!

Group Activity

We took the principles from the improv course and asked our teams to participate in a fun activity to underscore the importance of creativity, humor and listening to your audience.

Why

Wrap Up

To wrap up the breakout, we gave the team a challenge and parting words of wisdom.  Keep practicing!  This time listen to yourself and identify your habits and compare them to public speaking best practices.

We can all benefit from being better public speakers, have you practiced recently?
