The Importance of Visual Presentations
With all the various forms of online communication at our fingertips, it can be very tempting for a manager to simply convey new tasks, methods, or ideas through an email or text chat. If you’re one of those employers who might be overlooking the importance of visual presentations, then you’re missing out on a chance to utilize one of a manager’s most effective presentation tools.
The next time you’ve got a new assignment or a change in policy, here are some reasons to consider getting your team in the same room and walk them through a visual presentation.
Add Some Visual Pizazz
Any manager knows that when you send an email, most of your team won’t read it word for word. With a visual presentation, you’ve not only got a captive audience, but you have the opportunity to make the information stick with graphs, pictures, and bright colors.
Help Visual Learners
Most of your employees fall into one of three major categories of learning: hands-on, aural, and visual. In other words, when you whip up a visual presentation, you’re appealing to members of your team who learn through both seeing (visual) and listening (aural) to the information. Toss in some audience participation (hands-on), and you’re engaging with all three.
Get Everyone on the Same Page
By encouraging your team to interact with the material in a group setting, you can make sure that everyone is getting the information they need to succeed in the workplace. As a manager, it’s reassuring to know that you’ve gotten your message across to the whole team efficiently and effectively.
Give Your Team a Chance to Ask Questions
To ensure that everyone on the team is properly grasping a topic, encourage them to ask questions. This tactic helps guarantee that you’re explaining things clearly to your people. Not only that, but a question-and-answer session can help get your team talking and thinking about the assignment at hand which raises the chances that they’ll absorb the information.
Explain Complex Ideas Simply
You’ve heard the expression, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” That absolutely applies when you’re trying to explain complex new ideas to your team. A short video or a few slides with strong images can sometimes explain those complexities better than an email ever could.
