I teach a course in business communication for mba students. One exercise that is useful
is"to observe for a week how people communicate with you.Note down the situations where you experience some difficulty in understanding the message. Discuss these barriers at the end of the week and work out a joint plan to overcome the problems."
Really an experiment for Why you aren’t responsible for what you say, but what others hear.

What really liked was:
"Listen to what they think you said. This is possibly the most valuable of all three points"
"How many times have you been frustrated with a colleague and thought of what she would say, then what you would say, and before you realized it, 20 minutes had passed and you could not believe that you had wasted so much time on something so petty? Use that skill for your benefit.."
" Dedicating yourself to help your listener receive the value you intend by imagining how they will receive the words you offer, by affirming the value and worth of the listener and by honoring them with the opportunity to communicate their understanding back to you, creates a platform for future conversations."
Thanks a lot once again for the link.

Lemme assure you, no opinion is sponsored here.
Congrats for the successful presentation that you made. There are few tips for successful presentation. Hope you find them beneficial in future.
1.Have a clear focus why you are making the presentation.
2.Punctuate your presentation with anecdotes and examples. Everyone will remember your presentation.
3.Do you spot a bored audience? Quickly repair the damage. Try to involve them.
4.Pls never ever read your slides, if its ppt presentation.
5.Do not give out figures thinking no one in the audience would know. If they point out an inaccuracy, you would have lost complete credibility.
6.Maintain eye contact. Some presenters look at just five or six people. Never do that.
7.Often, the presenter looks at those who make them feel good. Happens if they are not confident as they interpret the expressions of the person as positive strokes.
8.Now a day we depend too much on technology. Sometime it may fail us. The computer may misbehave. The lights may go off… Many presenters collapse when technology fails. And lemme tell you audience really love this. Stun the audience behaving it made no difference to you as you are on top of the subject.
Best of luck
