The Complete Communicator five-part series lays the foundation for effective communication while Developing Leadership, Change Management, and Connected Culture workshops address the unique needs of the leadership lifecycle.
Complete Communicator Series
During this series of five highly interactive workshops, employees learn how to distinguish themselves as communicators by focusing on “rock solid” delivery skills, audience engagement strategies, and best practices for increasing message clarity and retention. Participants demonstrate subject matter mastery while presenting visuals and conveying executive presence. Participants are assessed and coached on key skills throughout the process, ensuring they are able to apply each skill to a variety of audience sizes and settings. The workshops in this series address Delivery Skills, Facilitation Skills, Message Development, Effective Use of Visuals, and Executive Presence.
Developing Leaders Workshop
Understanding your strengths, developing your personal mission statement, and defining what success looks like are hallmarks of this workshop. Practical application includes communication in stressful situations, conflict management strategies, selection and development of your successor, and key performance drivers for you and your team.
Change Management Series
Leaders learn to manage organizational change in this two-part series. Emphasis is placed on recognizing the need for internal and external change, identifying compelling issues within your company, effectively developing and executing a plan for change, and forming a cooperative coalition of ambassadors to lead change initiatives. Topics for discussion include root cause analysis vs. symptoms; articulating a new direction through vision-casting; implementing change through effective communication strategies; promoting alignment to the corporate mission; and overcoming system impediments and self-limiting beliefs. Practical application includes defining key action items and deliverables, leadership strategies, and succession planning.
