Can I ask you a question?
I can’t hear you, so I’m going to ask, anyhow:
You’ve doubts that you are a professional or not?
If you work in any domain then I’m sure you desire to become a professional, you desire to show everybody how good you can perform, but for some reason your work always back fires and doesn’t live up to your own standards so you start doubting on yourself, on your abilities which leads in distraction, losing interest to work and other stuffs. Finally you decide to quit before you even begin to try.
You may wonder how I know about all these. It’s pretty simple because I have been through all these and I learned my lesson.
“Worrying, doubting, building your own walls never solves anything, it makes things more worst and more complicated that we can’t easily handle them.”
Once my dad told me that, “Challenge your limits, not limit your challenges.” And I realize the true meaning of that line now.
If we quit after failing few times then we never going to succeed at anything, it’s same like if you want to reach to your destination then you’ve to keep walking no matter how many times you fall, if you keep walking then I’m sure someday you’ll reach to your destination, but if you quit then you’ll stay where you are for rest of your life. And I’m sure you don’t want that.
Remember, nobody really fails until they keep on trying.
Even once I considered myself a loser, a failure, but thanks to my family I turned myself into completely different person, I’m not a failure anymore. I can do whatever I want. But I know not everybody gets support in their darkest hour so that’s why I’m writing my experience.
2 years ago, I first got a chance to lead a conference call and I totally blowed it away. I sucked. The conference got totally flipped down because I wasn’t ready and don’t know how to deal with stress situations. After that I start doubting myself and started considering myself loser. I throwed myself down in dumps until I got a hand that supports me and pushes me further for one more try. And I gave one more shot with the suggestion I got form my senior friend who helped me when I was feeling I couldn’t do anything.
With the suggestion I got from my friend this time I performed well in conference and it was far better than last time. And today I’m going to share those suggestions with you so you can deal with your web conferences more perfectly.
Here are my four suggestions to become more profession in web conferences.
I know that web conferences are not like any kind of pop quiz show that you need to stay focused – but if you really stay focused and only talk about things that are related to your conference then I’m sure you can hit the target. All you need to do is stay focused.
I have seen many participant doing lots of useless things while they are attending conference like they attend calls, check emails, tweet, and other stuffs. They believe that because they are not in the same room as other participants, they can do number of things. And which results lack in focus and effectiveness of conference. Same goes to you, if you want to make your web conference hit then stay focused and stick with what’s important.
Don’t show your bossy attitude:
“Bad attitude is like flat tire you can’t go anywhere with it.” Keep that in your mind.
If you are leading the conference it doesn’t gives you ability to show your cocky attitude to attendees. If you are planning to show it then there’s a bad news for you because no one likes to deal with cocky attitude people. If you really want to make your conference hit then make sure you treat all your attendees with proper attitude and give them the respect that they deserve. The way you going to treat your attendees same way you can expect they are going to treat you. So keep your bossy attitude in control, if you have it, if not then its better.
Don’t forget about your real life surrounding:
This applies to everybody, every attendee, moderator, even on you. People usually forget about their real-life surrounding and they think it doesn’t matters much, but they are completely wrong. Many times your real life surrounding can be really very annoying like sound of shutting the door, pen falling from your desk, typing email while attending conference, your cell phone rings, and lots of other stuffs. Pay attention to your real life surrounding so you won’t able to get distract as well get embarrassed.
Keep Track On Every Attendee:
Try to keep watch on every attendee to see what they are doing, and ask if they have any doubts or questions that they want to ask and try to answer them properly. By doing this you able to keep the head of your most attendees in the conference and that’s the key to making your web conference successful.
