Leaders are on display every day and like it or not, are judged on how they effectively they communicate business objectives and company values. The Black Sheep Reputations formula for success covers five modules: visual (body language, eye contact and visual aids), voice (modulation and volume), verbal (message development, presentation outline), vocal (audience management) and value (first impressions, professional appearance and confidence). The session includes group discussion, videotaped role-plays and critiques of other business leaders’ speeches.


Mid-level managers working to advance their careers and senior-level managers who need to invest in professional development.
