Recently we experienced two very informative presentations by two young girls.
A few months ago, they would not have volunteered to present in front of over 30 attendees.
This demonstrates the power of group coaching sessions for our youth.
At a recent meeting we were presented with two informative speeches.
BEING THE MIDDLE CHILD:
The first speech presented was about the challenges and benefits of being a middle child.
As a middle child you have to learn how to co-exist when the older and younger children get the bulk of the attention. Whereas the middle child has to learn to entertain themselves and work with other age groups. This results in the middle child becoming an excellent negotiator, as they see both sides of an issue or question.
In addition, the middle child is more patient, independent and a consensus / team builder. These are critical skills in the work world of today and the future.
This presenter delivered a very well structured presentation. She told us stories and anecdotes to clearly outline some of the challenges faced by a middle child.
She made a strong case on why middle children were good citizens and excellent potential future employees.
THOSE WHO CHANGE THE WORLD:
The second speech was about people who have changed the world. This presenter mentioned well known people such as Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela and Albert Einstein. She pointed out some of their most valuable contributions and achievements which have had major impacts on the world.
Once again, this was a well organized presentation. She ended by informing those present that they too could have a positive impact on the world.
