Anyone who aspires to lead today must be able to communicate effectively and deliver a powerful message on the spot. Audiences expect you to speak authentically and clearly at a moment’s notice, without the benefit of a podium or scripted text. In this webinar you will learn how to prepare to be spontaneous and lead in corridor and elevator conversations, networking events, meeting dialogue, interviews, and Q&As. This session is based on Judith Humphrey’s book, Impromptu: Leading in the Moment (2017).
This webinar will show you how to:
- Think like an impromptu leader
- Instantly read any audience, of any size, anywhere
- Rapidly collect your thoughts and craft a persuasive message
- “Script” yourself within seconds for any occasion
- Avoid “um’s” and “ah’s” and find the right words
- Deliver your message with clarity and confidence
- Speak with presence
