Leadership may come naturally to some, but it is imperative to develop skills and strategies to help leaders build a team capable of meeting the demands of an increasingly challenging environment.
Learn to align your body language and word choice to articulate the greatest clarity of message and degree of influence. Identify your natural tendencies that distract from your message and obtain greater vocal variation, power and authenticity to enhance your leadership standing.
The goal is to leave with a deeper understanding of what executive presence means and why it is important in the context of executive leadership to give skills and techniques that will increase one’s effectiveness inside and outside of the workplace.
Specifically, this class will help leaders obtain the ability to get others to follow you, get a knack for removing challenges and obstacles, while developing a sense of humility with an unwavering focus on a better focus for the future of their organization.
