Presenting to your team, tips from Steve Jobs

Your team will benefit from your energized meetings when you apply a few tips from Steve Jobs. Even though you are speaking with your team, they too need to see and  understand your passion to grab onto your ideas, concepts, programs and policies.

View this informative video, write down at least two “gems” and incorporate those tips into your meetings or classroom presentations. Add flare, give them direction, increase their participation and engage them.

Remember, your team consists of adult learners and various generations. Engage them ALL in a way in which they will retain, take action and feel a part of the business.

Cheers, RR

Here is the news story of Coal Creek Robbery in Arapahoe County: http://www.thedenverchannel.com/news/30641900/detail.html

Employee Handbook Policy Example:

It is important to remember two things:

• Robbers want one thing – your money or property – and they want it quickly.

• Robbery is a risky business and robbers are usually nervous. You do not want to delay a robbery in any way and increase the potential for violence. Give the robber what he or she wants and do it quickly. Do not risk your life, or another person’s life, for property.
