CONDUCT 32 - REPRESENT LISTENERS: Remember that you are there for the listeners as a host not for yourself. You may want to ask questions or engage on issues that appeal to you but not relevant for the listeners. Be disciplined not to push your own agendas. Ask yourself the question: What would the listeners want to know or learn from this guest? What type of questions will unlock that for them? Ask such questions.
CONDUCT 33 - BEING FULLY PRESENT: This means physically and emotionally. Engage actively with the guests on behalf of your listeners. Your remarks, responses, follow up questions must suggest that you are applying active listening and are fully present. Refer to Conduct 13 - FOCUS. What to pay attention to during the show? One of the main requirements for effective hosting and facilitation of a show is to be fully present. That means you must be awake at all the time through the show. Make sure that the night before your show you rest and sleep enough. We know that this is a challenge as this is not your only activity in your professional life. However, you should try to balance your involvement in the week of your show. If it becomes your full-time activity comply with this requirement.
