Preparing for Post-Crisis Growth

Influential Communication

In fast-paced, complex and volatile business environments communication must be influential and appealing in content and delivery. Written and spoken messages need to resonate with diverse audiences. Leaders should master different styles to project their agility and ability to converse with ease in both offline and online settings.

Topics include

  • Getting the message right!
  • Intercultural communication skills
  • Advanced negotiation skills
  • Remote communication and the smart use of technology

Topics include:

  • Establishing a clear purpose and role
  • Achieving broad-based diversity
  • Modern team and intergenerational leadership
  • Leadership styles
