Speaking as a Leader

Enhance your speaking abilities and learn to speak like a leader, projecting strength and confidence in every interaction.

Why This Program?

In this course, you will explore a communications approach that will enable you to present your ideas so that others are inspired to act on them. You'll work with an experienced communication coach from the Humphrey Group Inc., who will guide you to speak with a clear message, persuasive structure, and compelling language. To ingrain your learning, the program includes hands-on presentation workshops in formal, informal and off-the-cuff situations. You will also create scripts, work on delivery and practice handling Q&As. Your skill development will be enhanced by videotaped feedback and guidance by your communications coach.

Upon completion of this program, you will:

  • View all communication through the lens of leadership
  • Move from an informational to an inspirational style when presenting ideas
  • Analyze your audience, and engage them with a grabber
  • Structure, develop and deliver powerful messages that drive home your points
  • Employ strong, confident language to project a leadership image
