Use Dale Carnegie’s LIONS formula to teach a skill, concept, or idea:
- L = Language easily understood
- I = Illustrate your ideas
- O = Organize what you’ll say
- N = Narrow to the key points
- S = Summarize
A real summary is a vastly shorter version of the content, restated so the audience can remember and recall. If you are summarizing effectively, you’ll help your audience remember and recall your most important points.
