Over the past few weeks, I have been collaborating with one of my colleagues at Professional Resource Network. We have been developing a personal marketing presentation with a follow-on workshop. This has been a very educational experience for me. In order for anyone to teach a subject, they really need to understand it themselves. They not only need some head knowledge but some practical experience as well.
While I may have lots of great ideas, I also realize that you can develop better ideas if you receive and apply feedback you receive from others. It is amazing how well my colleague and I work together. He questions areas that are weak and need more development. He has helped to clarify areas that need more explanation. He also confirms ideas that are clear and helpful to the entire presentation. He is planning to show this presentation and run the workshop. Both of us are gaining practical experience by following our own suggestions.
If I had done the entire presentation on my own, I wouldn’t have grown as much as I have. I’m sure the presentation and the workshop would be good, but not as great as it will be.
Till next time, don’t forget collaboration with others is one of the keys to success
