Developing Your Leadership Presence

About the program

As a leader, your ability to make things happen is contingent on how much your influence inspires and motivates those around you.

The best communicators understand that exhibiting a strong presence goes well beyond the words they choose to say. How and where a message is delivered are equally important.

This highly interactive experiential online program will stretch you to think differently. You'll first learn concepts using topics not found in a typical work context, encouraging creativity and experimentation. Then you'll apply new skills to address real workplace challenges, including how to establish an authentic and engaging virtual presence when communicating remotely.

Expert facilitators work in virtual groups and personalized one-on-one virtual coaching sessions to help you deepen your awareness of personal strengths and development areas, and address your real business communication challenges.

Enrollment for this program is limited to maintain low student-facilitator ratios.

In this program you will learn to:

  • Present yourself and your ideas with authenticity, authority, and inspiration by integrating the four core areas of your own unique personal communication style: voice, body, mind, and emotion
  • Build and maintain trust, social capital, and influence with your teams and stakeholders by generating connection and engagement at every interaction
  • Leverage your full toolkit of personal video conference presence skills in order to heighten your online presence and effectively influence your audiences across the screen
  • Tap into and effectively articulate your most important personal and organizational values in order to craft a fulfilling and meaningful identity as a leader in a rapidly changing world
  • Each participant will receive 1-hour of one-on-one coaching with the instructor for personalized feedback on your individual leadership presence, identifying existing strengths and recommendations for future development
