Effective Leadership Communication workshop

Host:University of Nottingham
Venue:Room A35, Trent Building, University Park, University of Nottingham
Date:Tuesday 23rd May, 2017
Time:9:30 - 16:30

Communicating effectively as a leader in the ever-changing global business world requires a versatile skills-set that needs to be creative, adaptable and frequently updated. Using the innovative approach of Linguistic Profiling, participants will be able to pinpoint their current communication styles and assess their communicative effectiveness. A set of practical linguistic toolkits will be introduced to open up brand new possibilities for effective leadership performance. The processes of reflection and enhancement of leadership performance aims to create the presence and impact that leaders strive for within their workplace cultures. We focus on both verbal and non-verbal communication, emphasising the significant role that non-verbal communication plays in communicating effectively and efficiently.

Our workshops offer a unique training experience as they are based on real-life professional interactions and include interactive drama and performance elements with our dedicated team of actors. All workshops are delivered at the University of Nottingham’s award-winning University Park Campus by our linguistics experts.

Our offer is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and we offer eligible SMEs a choice of: 2 free workshops, or 1 free workshop and a 6 hour consultancy taster package.
