  • Session Descriptions

    Day 1: Effective Leadership Communication 

    Effective communication is fundamental to effective leadership. Our most impactful leaders communicate in ways that others can hear it and hear what others say in order to cultivate mutual understanding. With attention and practice, that impact is accessible to all of us.  Together we will explore key elements of effective communication and integrate frameworks to build these capacities. In this interactive session, you will come away with the concepts and practices to help you:


    • Identify and close communication gaps
    • Use “clean” talk to express and understand important messages
    • Promote productive conversations by using methods to better explain our own thinking and get others to explain their perspectives


    Day 2: Powerful Presentations

    Our work lives are filled with presentations.  From meetings with senior leaders to quarterly financial recaps, pitch decks, team updates, project proposals and debriefs, training webinars, and customer presentations, we often find ourselves contributing to and/or delivering presentations. Being able to convey your key messages in a way that resonates with your audience is a critical business competency, but choosing what to share and how is often challenging (and time-intensive)! In this interactive session, we will provide actionable advice and opportunities to practice key skills for more powerful presentations, including:


    • Organizing your message – storylining and storytelling
    • Using charts and visuals to make your message “pop” and other best practices
    • Adapting your presentation approach to fit the audience, meeting format, and meeting objectives

    Day 3: Personal Presence and Impact

    How do you establish instant credibility and connect easily with others? This interactive session focuses on the principles of your presence, helping you further define your leadership style while capitalizing on your uniqueness. You will practice elements of presence in role plays. Learn how to:


    • Leverage your authentic leadership style to establish a differentiated personal brand
    • Use tools like visual cues and your voice to build trust
    • Develop a set of personal goals and tools for establishing a strong presence
