5 tips for success:

1. Know the business. Do some research on the audience, current state, and history. Don’t waste time asking questions you could have found out the answer to on your own.

2. Don’t insult your audience’s intelligence. If you use terms they don’t know, they won’t like or trust you. Remember, they didn’t go to school for years to learn about reliability/validity, just like you haven’t sept the last decade running an organization. #SIOP18 #IOPsych

3. Make the audience comfortable. Awkward social interactions lead to mistrust. Make eye contact, find common ground, be articulate.
4. Ensure your content is easily digestible. Pictures are more impactful than words; numbers can be misinterpreted or misleading.#SIOP18 #IOPsych

5. Avoid telling people they are wrong, particularly by saying research suggests something to the contrary. Also avoid saying saying the word “but”. Use “yes, AND…” instead. Never, under any circumstance, say “trust me, I’m an I/O Psychologist. #SIOP18 #IOPsych
