Speaking as a Leader

Without communication, how effective would your leaders be? Leaders need to be able to effectively communicate in nearly every aspect of their job. From difficult conversations to company-wide meetings, to unexpected discussions in the break room over a cup of coffee, your leaders need to be equipped with the knowledge, tools, and confidence to communicate with clarity, conviction, and influence. 

In Speaking as a Leader, we'll equip your leaders with exactly that. They will walk away with the knowledge of what makes communication effective, as well as actionable tools to put that knowledge into practice. But it doesn't stop there, as this learning experience dedicates time in each module to learning by doing. During this time, your leaders will work with their facilitator and peers to practice crafting messages and delivering them and then implementing that feedback in-the-moment. Needless to say, it's not your ordinary learning experience.

This learning experience is part of the persuasion stream of leadership communications. You can learn more about our development philosophy here.

The Learning Experience

Speaking as a Leader combines the best of self-directed learning and facilitator-led sessions. Your leaders will have access to our online portal where they complete modules before the upcoming session. To solidify the learning your leaders do online, Speaking as a Leader includes four live facilitator-led sessions where leaders have a chance to practice speaking in front of their peers and receive personalized feedback from their highly-trained facilitator. Not to mention, just because the modules conclude, doesn't mean the learning has to be over. To keep the learning alive, participants get one-on-one time with their facilitator, as well as access to the online self-learning module.

As part of our extensive content library, The Humphrey Group has a number of additional modules that complement Speaking as a Leader. Here are a few of our top recommendations: 

Storytelling for Leaders

Storytelling maximizes a leader's effectiveness as it can be used to build rapport and connection that facts and information can otherwise fail to create.

Presenting as a Leader

Whether presenting to 5 people or 500, leaders succeed when they know how to build and deliver presentations that inspire an audience to listen and act.

Handling Q & A

The ability to handle questions from an audience and provide clear answers is an invaluable leadership skill, one that is taught in this learning experience.
