Course Overview

Leadership has always been crucially important for any business. Any organisation now has many varied stakeholders with their nuanced demands and requirements. To lead an organisation in these 24/7/365 ‘always on’ days requires a set of skills that are many and varied. Yet all these skills have a common root. They need to be communicated clearly, flexibly and compellingly to an often widespread and diverse set of audiences. Employees (current and prospective) need to know who and what they are working for. Customers need to know what they are dealing with, and other stakeholders and interest groups need to have a clear idea of what they are entrusting their money and time to.

This Leading with Persuasive Communication training course will take the delegates on a journey to becoming a flexible, creative, and compelling communicator, passing on even complex ideas and notions clearly, concisely and compellingly. Communicating concisely, clearly and without ambiguity to a diverse audience is a must-have competence for any current or would-be leader. Genuine value is created (and lost) in communicating core messages throughout an organisation (and beyond). However, these crucial skills are not alchemy; they can be taught and learned.
