Communicating for Results Course Overview

Executives are communicating all the time but often don’t have time to think about their effectiveness or impact. It is not just what is said, but how it is articulated and presented. Impactful leadership communication not only needs to have an engaging and inspiring message but needs to be delivered with energy and intent.

This new three-day short course will use research and relevant practical methods to develop participants’ communication skills for a variety of contexts including the new virtual world of work. Communicating for Results is a hands-on course, with participants learning through a combination of communications theory, interactive presentations, and discussions.

Participants will learn how the combination of compelling content along with emotion, purpose, vocal tone, physical and virtual presence can impact, influence, and inspire people. This course uses a combination of practical tools and techniques coupled with opportunities to present with feedback to ensure all participants boost their existing skills to a significantly higher level. Videoing will be key component of this programme.
