You’re Already Doing It: What to Do When You Can’t NOT Communicate. The reality is that everything you do and say communicates something. Not communicating isn’t an option. The most successful leaders know that communication is the competency most critical to moving businesses forward, is the best defense in managing change and difficult situations, and is the driving force in engaging others. Whether you are running a thriving organization, trying to create growth in your company, or leading under the pressure to do more with less, you are always communicating – so you might as well be great at it.
In this session, David Grossman, ABC, APR, Fellow PRSA, will share practical insights on how top leaders differentiate themselves.
- Why leadership communication means business
- The three fundamental truisms every leader must understand
- Three myths leaders believe
- The most common traps leaders face
You’ll walk away with valuable perspective, best practices, and proven, actionable tools that you can start using right away. This workshop is a unique opportunity to learn winning strategies you can use every day and engage in thought-provoking discussion so you can differentiate yourself, elevate your leadership impact, and accelerate business results.
