About this courseSkip About this course
Success takes more than just knowledge and knowhow about domains, functions, people, processes and technology. Be it at a job interview, in a company meeting, or in front of a large gathering, you need to be a powerful communicator, touching the emotions and aspirations of the people you are speaking to. You need to connect, influence and inspire. You must ensure your messages are understood, advocated and championed. Irrespective of who your audience is – people with more experience than you, or with more knowledge – you must communicate with full confidence and lasting impact, resonating deeply with their aspirations, needs and desires.
The language of leaders is different. It strengthens their position and makes it easier for others to follow. When they speak they sound credible, convincing and compelling. The good news is, the ability to speak like a leader can be acquired.
Do you aspire to speak like a leader? Have you ever asked yourself the following questions?
How can I speak with greater confidence?
How can I make my speech more effective and impactful?
How can I speak so that people will want to listen?
The objective of this course in communication is to guide those aspiring to speak with confidence, to improve the speaking skills of first-time leaders, and to enhance the eloquence of seasoned professionals.
