Leadership Conversations™: Challenging High Potential Managers to Become Great Leaders


Learn Conversation techniques and tools that can help strong managers become great leaders

Feedback from CEOs of most successful companies suggest that having subordinates such as general managers, supervisors, junior managers, emerging managers, general staff, contribute with ideas, personal creativity, personal opinions and handling conversations with confidence, is one of the most crucial tasks they face: ‘majority of these people simply don’t know how to communicate effectively!’ This incapacity or inability to verbally and emotionally contribute to the wellbeing of the company can decelerate its own progress and success, or risk missing opportunities for the company in the long run. The primary intent of this workshop is to help participants to appreciate the knowledge of powerful and impactful communication, develop most essential soft-skills and have some tools in order to build strong foundations in the process of becoming confident and competent managers. The skill of confidently communicating with others is an essential asset in any aspect of your life; it can help to form strong teams, sell products and ideas, convince people and institutions to assist you, motivate people to trust and follow you, develop healthy relationships, and contribute to the company’s innovative process.
