Self-awareness is an important thing in business and life…

When I coached high school basketball, we video recorded every game.  The coaching staff would always watch it to learn what the team did well and what it didn’t do well.  Often, I would have the players watch.  My favorite phrase to them was, “The video never lies.”

The same is true in speaking.  I video record all my presentations.  The one I just watched this morning helped me uncover a bad habit.  The bad habit is the word, “and.”  I used “and” way too much in a recent presentation.  I now have something to work on improving.  The only way I knew that was because I recorded the presentation and then took the next step and watched it.

Do you want to improve your speeches and presentations?  If so, then record yourself every time.

The video never lies…
