Oral Presentation Guidelines by HC121106095723


									                 BUSI 30833 LDP Oral Presentation Guidelines


The oral presentation of your Leadership Development Plan (LDP) assignment is
designed to give you experience communicating and thinking on your feet. You will
only have 6 minutes total of in-class presentation time. You should plan to take no more
than 5 minutes to present and then allow 1-2 minutes for Q&A with your classmates.
You are free to use whatever visual aids you deem necessary for your presentation. They
are not, however, required for this assignment. Your presentation will be video taped.
Consider this video tape record additional data for your leadership self assessment for the
NGLP. DRESS is business casual. Suits or jackets are NOT required, but don’t come in
flip flops or ball caps either.


Your LDP assignment consists of three components: 1) Leadership Definition, 2) Self-
Assessment, and 3) Personal Leadership Action Plan. The time you spend in your oral
presentation may be devoted to any one of these three areas or some combination of
them. Recognize that you DO NOT have to present the final version of your entire project
paper. The written paper will permit you to devote the time required to each of these
three subsections. Your purpose during the oral presentation is NOT to try to cover
everything that you might choose to do in your completed paper. Rather, you should use
the class time to present your thinking on a subset of issues.

For example, you may be trying to reconcile different definitions of leadership that fit
your understanding and that provide you with a handle for understanding the self
assessment data you have gathered. Alternatively, you may want to focus your oral
presentation on your understanding of your self-assessment data and what the
implications of this information are for your personal development plan. Pick and choose
the material from the overall project that you believe will contribute to the understanding
of leadership development and that will provide you with feedback to sharpen your own
thinking on leadership.

Your oral presentation is an opportunity to demonstrate to your classmates that you have
thought and reflected on the course material as well as attempted an integration or
synthesis of classroom content, assigned readings, and discussions of external speakers.


The following criteria will be used to judge the quality of your oral presentation:
presentation technique (e.g., well organized, eye contact, energy, body language,
grooming), Content (e.g., clear, logical, evidence supported, correct
grammar/vocabulary), knowledge of audience (e.g., rapport, use of examples),
organization (e.g., beginning, middle, end; major points clear, use of transitions), and use
of suitable visual aids(not required, but if used, should be relevant to presentation). You
will be asked to self assess your presentation immediately afterwards using the oral rating
form provided to you (see below, print a copy and bring to class to complete after your
presentation). Be sure to make comments about your presentation and not just a
numerical rating.

NOTE: Dates were randomly assigned using a random number table. If you wish, you
may switch dates with a classmate if both you and the classmate agree. Be sure to email
me if you switch dates with a classmate.
