Communicating and Leading with Influence Overview

As leaders, being able to make conscious choices about how we react and respond to situations and people is an important skill.

The ability to communicate as a leader starts with listening, and recognizing when you need to reframe and amend your messaging to consider the needs and concerns of your audience, having an open mind, and suspending judgments and assumptions.

Having this knowledge as a leader helps you to be more self-aware, confident in your communication and ability to influence. Leaders with strong communication skills have a greater ability to engage and connect with their teams, peers, and other stakeholders. They can effectively communicate their vision and can create meaningful relationships.

Knowing the most effective way to communicate to influence others, be assertive, and manage yourself and your impact on others can have a positive impact on business outcomes.

Inspirational! This course almost got me emotional at the end. A very great course! It's very practical with tips to make leaders communicate effectively and influence (not manipulate) people into actions that lead to positive business outcomes. I recommend this course for everyone, not just leaders, because everyone is a leader at some level or capacity.
