When professionals are promoted to leadership positions, “leadership skills” are the top priority. These include skills such as delegation, motivation, coaching, and the POLC (Planning, Organizing, Leading, Controlling).
However, there is a critical yet overlooked skill leaders nee: how leaders communicate at a leadership level. Studies show: 95% of a leader’s time is used to communicate. But how much investment do leaders really give to higher-level communication competencies? How much investment do leaders give to increase their influence?
New leaders have the task of conducting and facilitating meetings. Positive and negative feedback are the norm. Leaders need storytelling skills during team assemblies and townhalls. Communication with fellow managers, and top management? Constant. The issues? They range from simple to complex.
That is why we at Guthrie-Jensen have developed an advanced program that combines the best of communication and leadership. We invite you to our upcoming workshop, Leadership Communication: Tools for Leadership Performance.
