Please use the instructions below to complete the order. Must have exactly 6 slides.

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 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 2, 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 dont 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. Im 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.
