Answering Harsh Questions
  • Acknowledge the reason behind the emotion. Do not defend yourself. Give an objective answer.
  • Be confused to buy time for both of you. If someone is swayed by emotions when asking, ask to repeat the question.
  • Offer the questioner the floor if he wants to share his perspective, but don't let it control the audience. Address it later on.
  • Tell the truth about the question's impact.
  • Dodge it and deliver an eloquent response.

IDEA

The Data Scientist presentation style

The Data Scientist uses data, analytics, facts, and figures to make his point and persuade the audience. 

Pros: This presentation style delivers data, information and analysis and will almost never be filled with fluff.

Cons: an audience that doesn’t want analytics and searches emotional connection will lose interest quickly.

Focus on Your Body

Instead of being swept in the spiral of negative thoughts like 'What if I fail? What will they think of me? try to be aware of your physical sensations: how your heart beats, how the air fills your lungs, the heat and sweat you feel.

This will anchor you in the present moment and calm your nerves.
