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.
