The higher you move up the management ladder, the more your communication skills play a critical role in your ability to be an effective leader. Early in your career what mattered was that you produced work that was valuable to the organization. Mid-career it became more important that you could function well as a member and leader of teams (e.g., what the team could accomplish).
Now that you are a senior manager (or contemplating joining that group), your success and value to your organization are dependent on how well you can motivate others-lots of them-by how and what you communicate. It's no longer about what you can do; it is what you can get others to do. It is still about performance, but now everyone is watching and you are always "on stage."
In this interactive program, you'll develop and practice techniques for communicating at a senior level. Through a series of discussions, exercises and simulations, you'll learn how to speak, write, listen and influence so that you can lead your organization more effectively and master key skills to enhance your executive brand.
