Strayer University Leadership Values and Effective Leaders Paper
Ineedassistancewiththe project below. I will create the video but can you answer the questions so I can create the video.
For this assignment, you will apply the key concepts from Weeks 1- 3 to deliver a video message on your leadership values, executive presence, or what winning means to you. The video message will provide an opportunity for you to practice your executive presence and interpersonal communication skills. While you record your video, you will also be delivering your message to an audience. You will find there is a difference between speaking to a camera and speaking to another person. As a leader, you will speak to many people every day. This should be a video of just you. No PowerPoint or other props are needed. Your communication should be clear with main points that are simple and easy to recall. Embrace a tone that is professional, reflecting your leadership values and passionate purpose.
Create a short video, using Zoom, addressing one of the three prompts below. Your video should last 1 to 3 minutes, but no longer than 3 minutes. Use your interpersonal communication skills and speak with executive presence. See the Best Practices below to guide you in achieving this. Deliver and record your presentation to an audience consisting of at least one person over the age of 18. Your audience member may join you on Zoom or in person. Suggested audience members include a classmate, a friend, or a family member. If you are unable to find an audience member, you may present to your professor. Whether your audience member is in-person or on Zoom, please make sure to face the camera and look into your webcam as you present. If your audience member is in person, they can say hi or wave at the camera before you begin; they can sit behind the camera or next to it, but they do not have to be on screen while you present.
