I liked the way you organize and present a study. You're really good at it.

One suggestion is to move the what is "collective motivation" earlier in the talk. Clarify the "no causal relationship" issue which contradicts your graphical overview of the results (a directed arrow implies causality). When talking about implications, make sure you cover the implications FOR YOU AND YOUR WORK (rdp).

I liked the way... you paced your study. It was clear and well organized. Your clarity in the application was also very well done.

One suggestion is... simplifying the results -- and implications. Perhaps focus in on a few key items rather than broad potential implications.

I liked the way... you visualized the concepts you were explain - very easy to follow. I think you set up the study very well in terms of what the researchers wanted to know. I thought it was important to point out the difference between studying undergraduates and then drawing conclusions for the workplace.

One suggestion is... I'm not sure if this is even something that should be included, but why did they think diversity might be related to group efficacy

You offered excellent examples that helped situate what a given construct might mean in practice, which was really useful for understanding their roles within the research.

That said, I would have liked a little less time spent on detailed examples of every construct/introduction and a little more on the results + implications side of the presentation. But the details did seem important, so it's hard to balance in such a short presentation!

I liked the way you presented this study. You make very well-designed slides, and you talked through a complicated logic model quite clearly

One suggestion is to be careful with using graphs in a quick way in talk. I "couldn't see" from the graph that we are becoming more diverse.

I liked the way...
.great definition of self-efficacy and group efficacy for non-experts
.nice job establishing need
.nice description of research framework / hypothesis
.results - extraordinary visual that mixed data and graphic (arrows)
.beautiful use of graphics on the whole

One suggestion is... pacing was very good but you might consider trimming a bit near the beginning to free up more time at the end for deeper discussion of the implications of the study

I liked the way you presented results in a easy and clear to understand manner

One suggestion is to be careful about implications. This is a correlational study, and correlation is not causation. Therefore, there is NOT an implication that hiring a more diverse workforce, for example, would lead to better group efficacy. Also, in methodology, I think the third point is the most important and would want to you spend more time there (less on point 1 and 2), and then go further. What do they do with quantified levels of diversity?

Start was strong introducing the issue and key terms. Would have liked to know more of the why as far as the sample/setting for this study. Overall, visual aids were strong, dark slides were hard to read. Also recommend if you are going to include values for results and not just concepts to quickly discuss the relation of significance and the values found. The implications for future research and findings could have had more time devoted - thoughts/reactions on what these findings mean? watch causation vs correlation in implications of finding. Voice tone and pace was good and easy to follow.

One suggestion is...

I liked the way... You provided a really clear overview of your study with detailed examples, but you still kept it really accessible to folks outside of your wheelhouse. I also really liked your balance of text and images in your PowerPoint.

One suggestion is... I would have liked to hear a little more about the implications, and felt like a little too much time was spent on the breakdown of the results (although the results were well stated and interesting).

I liked the way you presented a logic model to talk about the many relationships this study was investigating. It made something complex, more clear.

One suggestion is to find a better way to make the many findings easier for viewers to digest. One possibility is to re-used the logic model diagram and highlight what links mattered. I'm not sure if that works or not. The point is to use the talk to make the complex more understandable.
