What are the best leadership communication workshops?
First, start with a professional development workshop that is offered by someone with experience.
Jerome has intimate knowledge and first hand experience with communicating with audiences, large to small, in a wide variety of industries and professions. His initial successes and failures came when he entered the world of stand-up comedy. He learned how to read an audience by the obvious indicator; laughter. He learned the hard way that if the audience doesn’t understand you they won’t laugh, which means that you have to adjust. Basically, you are learning to lead, by following.
Jerome’s workshop on how to communicate by leading, includes hands on interactive exercises that start with the very basic skills of listening with confidence and humility. Throughout the session, you will build on each skill that was previously learned, to be able to master the following element or skill. This continues to the end of the workshop where the attendees will be able to read their audience (one on one or large group) and follow them with confidence. This approach to innovative leadership communication allows you to use and practice these skills as soon as the session is over.
How can I use leadership communication skills?
Being a great leader means that you have the skills required to get people to follow you. How do you get people to follow your lead? You have to find out about them; listen to them and know them. You can’t know them if you don’t pay attention. Leading is more about following than you might think. In terms of improvisation, this is called ‘follow the follower.’
