Speaking as a Leader

Introduction & Background:

The ability to speak with clarity, conviction and influence is critical to leadership. To be truly effective, leaders must be able to inspire action every time they speak – from formal and informal presentations to conference calls, one-on-one conversations, impromptu discussions and Q and A sessions. Speaking as a Leader® meets this goal by enabling participants to speak as polished, inspirational leaders in every interaction.

In this program, you will learn how to lead every time you communicate. The underlying objective of the program is to help participants become more influential through their communication. You will learn the most effective method of conveying your ideas so that others are inspired to act on them.

You will work closely with an experienced communication coach from The Humphrey Group®, who will guide you to speak with an inspirational message, persuasive structure, compelling language and the physical and vocal presence of a confident leader.

This highly practical program will give you tools and techniques you can implement immediately. During the program, you will engage in a variety of hands-on workshops and role-plays. You will create scripts, fine-tune your delivery and practice leading through challenging conversations. Your skill development will be enhanced by videotaped feedback and guidance by your communications coach.
