To Empower Others: Use the Four Cornerstones of Effective Feedback

August 21, 2019

Simon Day

From the moment we are born we are both receiving and giving feedback. Feedback from family and friends shapes us when we are young and continues to play an important part in our adult lives. Considering that feedback contributes so much to who we are and who we are becoming, I find it very surprising that so little attention is paid to how effectively we deliver, receive and act on feedback at work, and elsewhere.

The Evolution of Office Themes

August 21, 2019

The Evolution of Office Themes

Evolution is an interesting concept because it’s the change that’s natural, logical, and involved. And although Themes (Office Themes) did not exist in their present form before Office 2007 for Windows, they did evolve from the humble PowerPoint template. And as you get deeper into how Themes work, you’ll find that PowerPoint uses these Themes in amazing ways, and shares them with Word and Excel. That’s the reason they are called Office Themes rather than PowerPoint Themes.

Learn about Office Themes and how they work specifically in versions of PowerPoint on both Windows and Mac.

Working with HSL Colors in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

August 14, 2019

Working with HSL Colors in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Assuming someone has provided you with an HSL (Hue, Saturation, and Luminosity) value of a color, and asked you to add a rectangle of that color to a slide, then how do you proceed? Let’s also explore another scenario. What if you have started with a color that’s close enough to what you need, but it’s not the exact one. Maybe you need it to be a little less saturated? Again, you will benefit by working with the HSL color model rather than the RGB model.

Pictures in Presentations

Is a picture is worth a thousand words? You probably have heard this adage so often that we decided not to repeat this phrase throughout this book!

And that’s possibly because a picture describes so much more than text.
