This portfolio work project will give you practice with professional writing expectations, as well as motivating and persuading others by telling a story.
Create a brief slide presentation, with graphics, and preferably your voice presenting, that analyzes the tools and strategies that leaders can use to build trust and collaboration, and explains why you believe storytelling is one effective tool for you to use to lead your team.
The Creating a Presentation in the MBA Program Resources and the Guidelines for Effective PowerPoint Presentations [PDF] document will help you with this presentation.
The Ariel Group explains that a story needs to follow a basic four-step format that gently leads the audience into the story, through the story, and connecting the story:
The Ariel Group. (2011). Executive essentials: Storytelling [PDF]. Available from https://www.arielgroup.com/
Use this format, based on page 9 of the Ariel group resource, to create six slides (including cover page and references):
Slide 1. Cover slide with title and your name, and a graphic for interest (be sure to credit graphic artist in the reference slide).
Slide 2. Introduce the subject matter or business content. After your cover slide, create Slide 1, which introduces the slide presentation, much as the introduction to a paper would do.
Conversation example: “I think you’ve been doing a great job heading this initiative despite the hiccups you’ve encountered along the way. I want to make sure you don’t beat yourself up over this too much . . .”
Presentation example: “Today I would like to speak to you about a new marketing strategy for our product . . .”
NASA example: “NASA has a reputation for communication issues among teammates, but our team is going to change all of that.”
Slide 3. Transition into the story. This slide should transition into your story, setting the expectations of the audience of what is to come.
Conversation example: “In fact, back when I was a team leader, I had a similar experience . . .”
Presentation example: “Let me share with you a story to illustrate a vision of how we can work together . . .”
NASA example: “I once worked at another company that had some major communications issues. It wasn’t life or death like here at NASA, but we did have some serious problems in communications that impacted our ability to be effective.”
Slide 4. Tell the Story. This slide should actually tell your story:
Set the stage.
Describe the conflict.
Describe the resolution.
Example: “It’s 2012. I’m out on the soccer field with my son when he turns to me and says . . .”
NASA example: “About 10 years ago I was working as a shift leader at a manufacturing facility where safety was supposedly part of the culture, yet we had a frighteningly bad safety record . . .” Continue the story.
Slide 5. Connect the story to a teaching point or subject matter. This slide should bring your story back to the issue at hand.
Personal learning: “What my son said to me reminded me so powerfully that there is always a fresh, new way to look at any challenging situation.”
Message for the group: “Ladies and gentlemen, are we willing to shift our marketing strategy in a whole new direction, to take a risk in the way that my son did? I certainly am.”
NASA example: “In this situation, we learned this and that. Here at NASA, we can do the same thing. We can prove that communications this and that.” Think of this like explaining the moral of the story.
Slide 6. References. Include references here.
Presentation. Attach a PowerPoint presentation that has a cover page, four content slides per the above, and a reference slide. You must have exactly six slides—learning to follow established guidelines is important in school and the workplace.
Resources. Note that your slides should not be text-heavy. However, you should make ample use of presenter notes. While the presenter notes do not have to be a word-for-word transcript, they should be very close to what you would or do say in your audio. You may optionally use the slide software recording tools to record audio of your slides—you actually telling your story.
The United States is home to probably the most famous and productive sequential executioners ever. Names, for example, Ted Bundy, Gary Ridgeway, and the Zodiac Killer have become commonly recognized names because of the awful idea of their violations. One of the most productive sequential executioners in American history is John Wayne Gacy. Nicknamed the Killer Clown in view of his calling, Gacy assaulted and killed in any event 33 adolescent young men and youngsters somewhere in the range of 1972 and 1978, which is one of the most elevated realized unfortunate casualty tallies. Gacy’s story has become so notable that his wrongdoings have been included in mainstream society and TV appears, for example, American Horror Story: Hotel and Criminal Minds. Criminological science has, and keeps on playing, a significant job in the explaining of the case and recognizable proof of the people in question. John Wayne Gacy’s history of sexual and psychological mistreatment was instrumental in arousing specialist’s curiosity of him as a suspect. John Wayne Gacy was conceived on March 17, 1942, in Chicago, Illinois. Being the main child out of three kids, Gacy had a stressed association with his dad, who drank intensely and was frequently oppressive towards the whole family (Sullivan and Maiken 48). In 1949, a temporary worker, who was a family companion, would pet Gacy during rides in his truck; be that as it may, Gacy never uncovered these experiences to his folks inspired by a paranoid fear of revenge from his dad (Foreman 54). His dad’s mental maltreatment proceeded into his young grown-up years, and Gacy moved to Las Vegas where he worked quickly in the emergency vehicle administration before turning into a morgue chaperon (Sullivan and Maiken 50). As a funeral home orderly, Gacy was intensely associated with the treating procedure and conceded that one night, he moved into the pine box of a perished young kid and touched the body (Cahill and Ewing 46). Stunned at himself, Gacy comes back to Chicago to live with his family and graduates from Northwestern Business College in 1963, and acknowledges an administration student position with Nunn-Bush Shoe Company. In 1964, Gacy is moved to Springfield and meets his future spouse, Marlynn Myers. In Springfield, Gacy has his subsequent gay experience when a colleague shakily performed oral sex on him (London 11:7). Gacy moves to Waterloo, Iowa, and starts a family with Myers. In any case, after normally undermining his significant other with whores, Gacy submits his originally known rape in 1967 upon Donald Vorhees. In the coming months, Gacy explicitly manhandles a few different young people and is captured and accused of oral homosexuality (Sullivan and Maiken 60). On December 3, 1968, Gacy is indicted and condemned to ten years at the Anamosa State Penitentiary. Gacy turns into a model prisoner at Anamosa and is allowed parole in June of 1970, a negligible year and a half after his condemning. He had to migrate to Chicago and live with his mom and watch a 10:00PM check in time. Not exactly a year later, Gacy is accused again of explicitly attacking a high school kid however the young didn’t show up in court, so the charges were dropped. Gacy was known by numerous individuals in his locale to be an eager volunteer and being dynamic in network legislative issues. His job as “Pogo the Clown” the comedian started in 1975 when Gacy joined a nearby “Happy Joker” jokester club that normally performed at gathering pledges occasions. On January 3, 1972, Gacy submits his first homicide of Timothy McCoy, a 16-year old kid making a trip from Michigan to Omaha. Guaranteeing that McCoy went into his room employing a kitchen blade, Gacy gets into a physical quarrel with McCoy before cutting him over and again in the chest. In the wake of understanding that McCoy had absentmindedly strolled into the stay with the blade while attempting to get ready breakfast, Gacy covers the body in his creep space. Gacy conceded in the meetings following his capture that slaughtering McCoy gave him a “mind-desensitizing climax”, expressing that this homicide was the point at which he “understood demise was a definitive rush” (Cahill and Ewing 349). Right around 2 years after the fact, Gacy submits his second homicide of a unidentified young person. Gacy choked the kid before stuffing the body in his wardrobe before covering him (Cahill 349). In 1975, Gacy’s business was developing rapidly and his craving for youngsters developed with it. Gacy regularly attracted youngsters under his work to his home, persuading them to place themselves in cuffs, and assaulting and tormenting them before choking them (Cahill 169-170). The vast majority of Gacy’s homicides occurred somewhere in the range of 1976 and 1978, the first of this time occurring in April 1976. Huge numbers of the adolescents that were killed during this time were covered in a slither space under Gacy’s home. For the rest of the killings, Gacy confessed to losing five bodies the I-55 extension into the Des Plaines River; in any case, just four of the bodies were ever recouped (Linedecker 152). In December 1978, Gacy meets Robert Jerome Piest, a 15-year old kid working at a drug store and extends to him an employment opportunity at Gacy’s firm. Piest advises his mom regarding this and neglects to restore that night. The Piest family records a missing individual’s report and the drug specialist advises police that Gacy would in all probability be the man that Jerome addressed about a vocation. When addressed by the police, Gacy denied any inclusion in Piest’s vanishing. Be that as it may, the police were not persuaded, and Gacy’s history of sexual maltreatment and battery provoked the police to look through his home. Among the things found at Gacy’s home were a 1975 secondary school class ring with the initials J.A.S., different driver’s licenses, binds, apparel that was unreasonably little for Gacy, and a receipt for the drug store that Piest had worked at. Through the span of the following barely any days, examiners got numerous calls and tips about Gacy’s rapes and the secretive vanishings of Gacy’s workers. The class ring was in the long run followed back to John A. Szyc, one of Gacy’s unfortunate casualties in 1977. Futhermore, after inspecting Gacy’s vehicle, specialists found a little bunch of filaments looking like human hair, which were sent to the labs for additional examination. That equivalent night, search hounds were utilized to identify any hint of Piest in Gacy’s vehicle, and one of the mutts demonstrated that Piest had, actually, been available in the vehicle. On December 20, 1977, under the pressure of steady police reconnaissance and examination, Gacy admits to more than 30 killings and educates his legal advisor and companion where the bodies were covered, both in the creep space and the stream. 26 unfortunate casualties were found in the creep space and 4 in the waterway. Gacy is captured, indicted for 33 killings, and condemned to death by deadly infusion. He endeavored a craziness supplication however was denied, and was executed on May 10, 1994. There were a few scientific pointers that examiners used to attach Gacy to the homicides. A portion of these include fiber examination, dental and radiology records, utilizing the decay procedure of the human body, and facial remaking in recognizing the people in question. Examiners discovered filaments that took after human hair in both Gacy’s vehicle and close to the creep space where the bodies were covered. Notwithstanding these hair tests, specialists additionally discovered strands that contained hints of Gacy’s blood and semen in a similar region. Blood having a place with the exploited people was found on a portion of the filaments, which would later legitimately attach Gacy to the violations. The strands in Gacy’s vehicle were examined by scientific researchers and coordinated Piest’s hair tests. Moreover, the pursuit hounds that confirmed that Piest had been in Gacy’s vehicle showed this by a “passing response”, which told examiners that Piest’s dead body had been within Gacy’s vehicle. Out of Gacy’s 33 known unfortunate casualties, just 25 were ever indisputably recognized. A considerable lot of Gacy’s exploited people had comparative physical depictions and were hence difficult to distinguish by simply asking the general population. To distinguish the people in question, agents went to Betty Pat Gatliff, a pioneer in scientific science and facial reproduction. Facial remaking is the way toward reproducing the facial highlights of a person by utilizing their remaining parts. Certain facial highlights, for example, facial structures, nasal structure, and generally speaking face shape can be helpful in distinguishing an injured individual even long in the afterlife. By utilizing these highlights, and with the assistance of program, scientific agents can make a picture of an individual’s face, which is instrumental in distinguishing exploited people after their bodies have rotted. Facial recreation should be possible in a few measurements. Two-dimensional facial recreations is utilized with skull radiographs and depend on pre-passing photos and data. Be that as it may, this isn’t really perfect on the grounds that cranial highlights are not constantly noticeable or at the correct scale (Downing). So as to get a practical and increasingly exact delineation of the injured individual’s face, a craftsman and a measurable anthropologist are typically vital (Downing). Three-dimensional facial remaking is finished by models or high goals, three-dimensional pictures. PC programs can make facial reproductions by controlling filtered photos of the remaining parts and use approximations to reproduce facial highlights. These will in general produce results that don’t look fake (Reichs and Craig 491). Now and again, specialists will utilize a strategy called superimposition as a system for facial reproduction. Shockingly, it’s anything but a generally utilized technique, as it expects specialists to have some information about the personality of the remaining parts they are managing. By superimposing a photo of a person over the skeletal remains, specialists can check whether the facial highlights line up with the anatomical highlights, enabling them to recognize an injured individual. On account of John Wayne Gacy’s exploited people, specialists had the option to utilize facial recreation to recognize nine of the bodies found in the creep space. The accompanying realistic shows the facial reproductions of these nine unfortunate casualties: Since facial recreation was insufficient to distinguish the entirety of the v>GET ANSWER Let’s block ads!
