The ability to speak with clarity and conviction is critical for leaders. To be effective, leaders must be able to inspire others every time they speak – from formal and informal presentations, to conference calls, one-on-one conversations, impromptu discussions, and emails.

In Speaking as a Leader®, your employees learn how to apply a simple methodology to speak as a leader in any interaction. They will receive individual coaching, feedback, and collaborative practice in applying our Persuasion Model to formal and informal communication. The results are transformative.

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

You May Also Consider

As part of our extensive suite of offerings, 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 builds a level of rapport and connection that facts and data cannot. It’s a skill that takes any communication to the next level—if you know how to use it.

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.
