The Language of Leadership
Shh….. Did you know that there is a secret Language of Leadership: a secret language which has determined who has reached the top in politics, business and society since the dawn of time? In this two-day workshop, top speechwriter Simon Lancaster sets out top tips from the Language of Leadership to make your communication more engaging, inspiring and influential. The course workshop teaches themes as ancient rhetoric together with the latest insights from neuroscience as we analyse current trends in modern commercial and political discourse and look at how these techniques works in practice.
Leading effectively requires being able to communicate across different audiences and to persuade by understanding what matters most to the particular group you are dealing with. Active listening and a respect for other points of view, though easy to agree with intellectually, are often difficult to put into practice. By working on real-life examples, we will explore how messages can be conveyed persuasively and crises averted.
- Analyzing your audience
- Tailoring communications to different audiences
- Synthesizing information, versus summarizing
- Communicating effectively in a crisis.
At the end of the Executive MBA Course, you will be able to:
- Explore different approaches to creating an effective and persuasive presentation
- Become more aware of your own strengths and challenges as a communicator
- Lead with a strong sense of clarity and purpose.
