Communicating Clearly and Confidently

How to Prepare, Connect & Follow up Effectively to Inspire Others

Effective Communication is the most important skill set for any new manager/leader to master. Managers/Leaders must be good communicators because moving from being an individual contributor to a people leader means work is now done through others. Managers/Leaders inspire and empower people to take action with clear communication. Take some time out to learn a model to support you to be clear and confident when communicating with any audience.

Specifically, you will learn:

  • Your default communication style and why you need to flex into other styles
  • How to prepare for important conversations including doing an assessment of your audience
  • How to be a clarity partner during communication opportunities with any audience
  • How to inspire action with clear calls to action in every communication opportunity

You will also receive a planning tool to support your preparation for any communication opportunities.
