Preparation makes Perfection

Malcom Gladwell is a Canadian journalist, speaker and writer of the best-sellers, The tipping point, Outliers, Blink, What the dog saw and David and Goliath.

 

For this post we will focus on the 10.000 hours rule that Malcolm Gladwell talked about in the book “Outliers”.

 

The catch phrase “Practice makes Perfection” is often used on the presentations activity. It has been proven, that to boost your confidence and assurance that your message does its purpose, you should practice and prepare the most you can. In front of the mirror, in front of cam-recorder, to friends and family, to colleagues, to anyone that can help you improve your performance and presentation.

 

A presentation can be a powerful tool when it is efficient. In other words, to have an effective presentation, means to transform your audience. In the end, the success of your presentation will be measured by what they take of the information you are giving them. To do so with confidence, requires you to be concise, with your content, interesting and straight to the point with the visuals that support your information, turn the experience into a conversation and be reassuring with your body language.

 

These behavioural aspects differ between speakers. Below you can download a #soapfreebie about the anatomy of the presenter, to get an idea of what we are saying.

Although practice plays an important role in a presentation, PREPARATION in our opinion needs an even more important role. Imagine the following scenarios: The technical support team at the event you’re counting on to display your presentation, let’s you down and don´t show up in time. How are you going to address your audience? There was misunderstanding with the schedule, and now you have to keynote to a totally different audience that you practised for, or the speaker before you took more time in his presentation than expected, and your time was cut, from 30 minutes to 10.

 

In all the scenarios mentioned above, without Preparation all the practice seems short. Even if you apply Malcom Gladwell’s rule, “that popularized the idea that 10,000 hours of appropriately guided practice was “the magic number of greatness,” regardless of a person’s natural aptitude. With enough practice, he claimed in his book Outliers, anyone could achieve a level of proficiency that would rival that of a professional. It was just a matter of putting in the time”.

 

SOAP’s experience in the presentation field, has proven that the person’s natural aptitude reflects one’s performance, that is why we use “Preparation makes perfection” rather than “Practice makes Perfection”.
