THE POWER TO LEAD: Advanced I

Move ideas, messages, and stories

Let’s face it, most presentations are boring. When speaking in front of a group, leaders often fall into one of the three common pitfalls of executive communication: too much information, not relevant to the listener, no clear point.

Whether rallying your team, pitching a product, or delivering a keynote address, the foundation of successful leadership hinges on relevant ideas, memorable messages, and powerful stories. Transform your presentation — from talking “at” your listeners — into a relevant, organized, dynamic conversation that advances your ideas and leads your listeners into the future.

Develop high-performance communication in three core areas:

MOVING YOUR IDEAS: Inspire listeners to action
  • Organize your ideas into a compelling, scalable narrative that drives results
  • Navigate the unpredictable nature of Q&A with skill and finesse
  • Reveal and amplify the power of your body, eyes, and voice
POWER MESSAGING: Make a memorable impact
  • Learn a proven methodology to connect message to story
  • Craft a concise message to drive specific business outcomes
  • Harness powerful language to engage the emotions of your listeners
BRAND-INSPIRED STORYTELLING: Humanize your idea
  • Ace the art of storytelling to deliver a relevant experience or metaphor
  • Develop nuanced, brand-relevant stories to communicate value
  • Bring data alive or clarify the complex with classic story structures

“Can you believe how much time executives devote to speeches and presentations? … So why do presentations persist? Because a good one, even if it ultimately conveys little detailed information, can have a powerful emotional impact. It can win people’s trust and motivate them to act, thereby sparking organizational insight and change. And on a personal level, the ability to move an audience can shape the trajectory of a manager’s career.”
