This Week’s Tip: Record Yourself
When you record your practice sessions or presentations, you give yourself a powerful tool for professional growth.
When you’re in the middle of a presentation, you have a bunch of important things to focus on. Number 1 of course is your audience. Plus you can’t hear or see yourself the way your audience does. The physics of human anatomy simply make that impossible. By recording your self, you make it possible to go back later, perhaps with a little distance, and do a full assessment of your actual performance.
If the recording it great, you now also have piece for your portfolio if you ever find yourself job hunting.
