Full Course Description

Leadership Communication Boot Camp

This program is designed for business leaders who want to significantly improve their leadership communication skills as well as professionals who are making the transition to a new leadership role.

Topics include:
  • Leading with Purpose
  • Your Leadership Style
  • Listening Like a Leader
  • Presenting Like a Leader
  • Running Effective Meetings
  • Boosting Executive Presence

After taking my course on leadership communication, you will be able to communicate with purpose and confidence so you can be a more effective and authentic leader.

It’s a hybrid course with 3 self-paced learning modules and 3 one-on-one coaching sessions after each.

This mix of formal instruction plus customized, one-on-one coaching will get you where you want to be faster than 100% self-paced learning.

Seating is very limited, as we allow only 8 leaders at a time to ensure maximum engagement and focused, one-on-one coaching time.
