Course 1: Leadership Communications

Aspiring executives and other leaders want to know the most important key to an esteemed business leader’s success. Thinking the answer must be something like inspiring leadership, technological innovation, savvy marketing or far-sighted financial planning—all of which are important—jaws drop when the truth is learned. A savvy leader’s success is tied to his or her ability to focus on business fundamentals, and the six basic functions of management: Leading, Planning, Organizing, Staffing, Controlling and Communicating. The golden thread tying all these functions together–and the MOST important key to great leadership? Clear communications!

The best leaders build high-trust and inspire their people, through clear communications. In real estate, the old cliché is “location, location, location”. In business leadership, you will learn “communication, communication, communication”. The best leaders are first-rate communicators, and you’ll learn to realize clear communications are always a two-way process. It’s not enough to speak clearly – you have to make sure you’re being heard and understood. To facilitate this, you’ll be taught the two-way communication primer:

1. Prepare how you’ll communicate

2. Deliver the message

3. Receive the message

4. Evaluate the effectiveness of the communication afterwards

5. Take corrective action as necessary

In addition, the next time you’re drafting a letter, email or policy statement, you’ll learn to stop and consider these common barriers to clear communication:

1. Lack of respect by either party for the other

2. Poorly defined purpose for the communication

3. Failure to establish the best medium for the communication

4. Assumption that the listener receives the message

5. Ignored emotions or sensitivities

6. Failure to communicate on the listeners’ level

7. Intimidation by either party

In summary, clear communication is the most important key to a business leader’s success. This workshop will help your employees grow, while learning how to be effective, compelling communicators. If you want your company to succeed, you and your team have to master the art of clear communication together. By using the techniques, strategies and tips learned in this workshop, you and your employees can reach new levels of excellence.
