The power of good intentions
Good intentions and powerful presentations
Presenting at an international conference is a service of compassion and charity. A moment that you can embrace your professional development. Time for courage, confidence and gratitude.
Presenters with integrity are honest and have aim. Studies like (Kurt Gray, 2012) show that good intentions increase pleasure in experiences. These emotions influence memory recall of information (Bradley et al., 1992; Cahill & McGaugh, 1995; Kensinger et al., 2002).
Attitudes, discipline and warmth that comes from the heart guide a sincere path to good outcomes. The effect creates a path for the future.
wishes to prevent harm in others
enjoying the service of giving to others
using statistics and speaking truthfully
statistical analysis easily understood
willingness to use skills.
Qualities of warmth:
care in use of jargon and unfamiliar mathematical expressions (confusion in the audience can disconnect them from social reality)
engaging in emotions, interests, and worldly views towards a common goal
plans for a future and hope.
One of the most important elements of a good handshake is being prepared and having purposeful positive intentions. This takes alertness and strength in one's spirit.
Have faith that you are serving others.
