High-Impact Leadership

  • TBD
  • 3 May 2019 - 5 May 2019

Effective leaders must be effective communicators. To lead, it’s critical to know how to engage in productive interpersonal exchanges and interactions, motivate and inspire, and create influence over an audience.

Ultimately, your energy and vigor as a leader impacts the energy and performance of your team, department or organization. But the first step is finding the right communication approach for your own leadership style.

Transform Your Communication Style

High-Impact Leadership isn’t your everyday leadership training course. Breaking the conventional mold, this three-day progressive and non-traditional executive program uses powerful theater techniques, role playing and personal coaching to move participants from their comfort zone into a practical application of core communication techniques. Course topics include:

The Art of Leadership Presence
The Power of Dialogue: Leader as Communicator
Partnerships in the Workplace: Every Business is a Relationship Business
Feedback: Giving and Receiving “The Sandwich Effect”
Discovering your Authentic Leadership

Executive coach, faculty director and former professional actor Mark Rittenberg creates an interactive environment where he challenges, inspires and coaches participants to identify and transform their communication weaknesses into communication strengths. Participants will actively use role playing and speech activities to improve articulation and expression to more effectively connect with audiences.

Key Takeaways
