About the course

Enabling Women to Project a Powerful Leadership Presence

Delivered in partnership with The Humphrey Group Inc., this high-impact program is designed to help women speak with courage and confidence so they can be seen and heard as leaders. Adopt a “taking the stage” mindset. Script yourself as a leader and unlock the power of your voice.

The course includes workshops and personalized coaching sessions that will enable you to practice speaking as a compelling leader in a variety of situations.

What you will learn

  • Move beyond subconscious female behaviours and language traps that might be holding you back
  • Portray yourself as a dynamic leader rather than a doer
  • Confidently share your vision with others
  • Employ vibrant, convincing language that is assertive, not aggressive
  • Use your vocal power to engage others
  • Speak with a powerful script that inspires others to listen and respond to you
  • Develop your skills in a supportive peer-to-peer environment

Program content

  • Embracing your leadership identity: why women often shun the stage, recognizing the value you bring to each audience, your ‘character’ and ‘role’ as a leader
  • Applying the leader’s script: developing a clear message, building a persuasive structure, closing with a strong call to action
  • The language of leadership: mastering the power of language, speaking with strength without apologizing, minimizing or self-correcting
  • Achieving the voice of a leader: common vocal traps that can undermine your leadership, freeing the breath and projecting the power of your voice
  • Adopting a leader’s presence: using your physical presence to create power, employing a leader’s body language, eye contact, tone and pace, “looking the part”
  • Leading in conversations: active listening, informal and off-the-cuff speaking
  • Leading in conflict: taking the right attitude towards conflict, tactics to lead in conflict

Special Feature

Working in small groups, you will create and deliver a well-argued talk that conveys leadership. You will also role-play conversations where you need to inspire action. Your skill development will be enhanced by videotaped feedback and individual guidance by experienced Humphrey Group consultants.
