At work places (any kind) there are meetings and then there are annual assessments by the management. Not every one is comfortable with these. Often one comes out of these feeling that he or she could have done better at the presentation of an idea at the meeting. And very commonly one feels that the assessment discussion didn't go to ones satisfaction (I could have said something better or the management shouldn't have said that, I didn't deserve that, etc...).
I have had those moments, and often too.
Occasionally, not always and everyone gets ideas and guidance regarding dealing with these. Sometimes even when someone is trying to give some help we may not recognize it. But, later one may feel I should have done that or said that then, or listened to him etc.
These things happen because of lack of experience, guidance or awarenenss. Or even lack of readily available resources. One is reacting rather than responding. One can learn to deal with these kind of issues with some preparation and help.
Also, the subject of the topic "Presentation skills..." was discussed in the Heartfulness magazine (as a series of articles starting from the June 2017 thru Jan 2018 magazine issues). This mag is freely available as a digital download from the website: http://www.heartfulnessmagazine.com/
The mag's issues Feb 2018 thru May 2018 have the articles "The Heartful Negotiator" (negotiating at work place, e.g., negotiating a raise with the management, etc.).
I've been a practitioner of Heartfulness meditation (a wellness program) for a few years and I have benefited from it. I wanted to share the above for the same reason. The program is free for everyone.
