Achieving Leadership Momentum Through Trust and Behavioral Clarity

Format availability:



5 Days

Introduction to the course

As a leader in your organization, everyone, from the executive team to the front line, is expecting results. Every internal and external stakeholder expects a certain level of confidence, clarity, authenticity, and clear communication. Becoming more intentional in your communication as a leader and honing your own unique brand of executive presence will help you get there. Inspiring this kind of confidence requires you not only articulate and communicate your ideas with clarity and composure; you must build high levels of trust – trust in your competencies as a leader and decision-maker, in your technical capabilities, and in your absolute commitment to follow through on what you say you will do.

The Advanced Executive Presence training course demystifies these qualities – redefining them as skills that can be learned and mastered. Integrating the latest research and thinking around communication, body language, trust and the science of influence, the training course also offers a highly practical approach including constructive role play exercises that will accelerate your self-awareness and deep understanding through video feedback analysis.
