In leadership, great communication skill is among the most important predictors of success. As a leader, you need to influence others, gain alignment, and drive results. We’ve all wondered whether leaders who speak well are by nature more comfortable at the front of the room, however, speaking is not a natural born skill. Anyone can learn to command a room and engage an audience.
In this session, you’ll learn the secrets that for two decades have helped thousands of leaders in global companies master the art of speaking in formal and informal settings. This program is not a public speaking class for beginners. It is designed for the moderate to relatively experienced leader who wants to shine on a bigger stage, and be considered a superb communicator.
This course is perfect for leaders who want to:
- Be confident in high stakes presentations
- Win support and influence decisions
- Interpret the data so audiences understand
- Build rapport, win hearts and minds
What’s exciting about this course is how simple and powerful the tools are, in helping anyone reduce their preparation time for formal and informal communications, and be far more effective. You’ll learn how to use the Audience Agenda, Big Idea, 3-Minute Business Case, and a Six-Step Storytelling Process.
In addition, you’ll discover the three dimensions of developing greater executive presence. We’ll share the 15 qualities we know from science are critical to winning trust, earning credibility, and inspiring others to get aligned and get things done.
Whether you’re making a presentation to the board, the executive team, investors, shareholders, your boss, peers, and employees, this course will leave you feeling confident that you can quickly prepare, enjoy the experience, and make a positive lasting impression.
