The Influential Leader

In business, success ultimately comes down to human-to-human connection. If you want to make an impact and effect change, you need to be able to build rapport, listen well, tell stories, tailor your messaging, and think on your feet to respond in the moment. 

The Problem:

  • Brilliant ideas and insights aren’t having the impact they should
  • Smart, talented leaders and HiPo’s struggle to make complex ideas accessible to those who don’t share the same expertise
  • Some team members (especially those with academic backgrounds) may have an adversarial or argumentative tone that turns people off, while others may be so “soft” that they never push back and get “steamrolled”
  • Team members fail to connect with different audiences, so their important insights never spread
  • People dig their heels into existing positions instead of working to find common ground
  • Freezing or choking during high-stakes situations
