Mistake: Reading from the slides. 

Why is this a problem: Slides are there to support and enhance what you are presenting. Their goal is not to repeat what you are saying! Those are 2 different things. If you are going to be reading from the slides, just cancel the meeting and send them your audience. They can read them themselves.

Solution: Don’t read from the slides. Never! 

Here, now you are 15 steps closer to becoming a great trainer. ?

P.S. If your slides are designed in such a way that you are reading from them – meaning that they have a ton of text on them – you have a serious problem.
