3: Read the following scene. Nicholas (District Manager) is standing, giving a presentation in the conference room. Carla and Dana are audience members. For the first section, Carla and Dana are not interested in the presentation. Carla is writing in her day planner or on other notes. She is restless. Dana is sitting back in her chair, arms folded across her chest. She does not make eye contact with Nicholas. Nicholas is starting with a slow speech rate and boring delivery. When he notices their behavior, he should increase his speaking rate and energy.

Nicholas: (slow, boring, little vocal variety) I’ve developed several changes for the department that I think will increase productivity, ensure better communication, and create a more cooperative environment. (notices Carla and Dana’s nonverbals) I’m sure that we can implement these plans successfully within a month. If so, then by the end of the year we should see an eight to twelve percent increase in productivity, and we’ll be working in a more positive environment.

State some of the ways that Nicholas should use to capture Carla’s and Dana’s attention.
