High Impact Leaders Course

Session #12: Communicating and Leading Under Pressure

Part A: Impromptu Speaking with Confidence

(Approximately 1.5 hrs)

Impromptu Speaking with ConfidenceOne of the hardest types of speeches to deliver is the impromptu presentation. A leader who can stand up, and say what he or she wants to say, the way that he or she wants to say it, is exceptional. Especially, if that leader is speaking off the cuff. This session helps presenters think and speak more clearly when under pressure. The process also allows the speaker to be more persuasive in an impromptu speaking situation. By attending this session, you can expect the following results:

  • Think and speak more clearly under pressure.
  • Design and deliver impromptu speeches quickly.
  • Handle questions more easily.

Part B: The Leadership Toolbox

(Approximately 1.5 hrs)

The Leadership ToolboxThe final session of High Impact Leaders is designed to help participants begin to see the “real-world” application of all of the skills developed in the class. We first review each session covered in the 12 session class. Then, we divide the class into executive teams who will each get a case study of a challenge experienced by a real executive team. Each group will get 30 minutes to identify a step-by-step plan using skills from the class, to solve each challenge. By attending this session, you can expect the following results:

  • Review all skills developed in High Impact Leaders.
  • Use real-life case studies to reinforce skills developed in the class.
  • Develop problem-solving skills for the business world.
