VOICE & COMMUNICATION SKILLS FOR LEADERS
Do you have the presence of a leader? Does your leadership voice resonate with your people? Can you persuade others to embrace your ideas and strategies for change? Do you communicate enough and in the best way? Do you have the power and imagination to inspire others?
It is impossible to be a great leader without great communication. One’s leadership is as effective as one’s ability to express it.
Leadership research shows us, time and time again, that a leader’s communication style has a profound effect on his or her effectiveness as a leader. On-going research also tells us that people want their leaders to be more inspirational.
This program invites leaders to reflect on and refine their ability to communicate their leadership agenda effectively and in such a way as to inspire confidence, support and trust. Without these, high performance is unattainable.
This program helps leaders develop their voices and think more strategically about their leadership communication content and engagement strategies to ensure that their key messages resonate with their people, across their industry and beyond.
The program is delivered as a master class in personal presence, voice skills, articulating vision, strategic messaging, story-boarding skills, communication planning, the art of strategic conversation, techniques ofrhetoric and persuasion, and the use of creative methods to develop, frame and deliver powerful and memorable formal and informal presentations and interactions.
The content and length of this program are tailored for each organization.
