SKILLS TO DELIVER CONFIDENT, COMPELLING COMMUNICATIONS
If you’ve ever observed someone and said to yourself “wow they’re a great presenter”….. or “wow they really know how lead a good meeting.” That person did not get there by accident. Nor did they just develop those skills by feel. Highly effective communicators are leveraging a finite yet powerful set of principles that
they’ve learned, practiced, and habituated. You can do the same. What all these successful people have in common is that they engage and maintain the attention of listeners, inspire confidence, deliver ideas clearly and memorably, and handle interactions seamlessly. Executing these skill sets certainly becomes more challenging given the inherent distractions of virtual formats.
